University of Rochester Chemistry REU – Apply by Feb. 14th!

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

May 31 – August 4, 2017

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, this summer program of full-time scientific research includes discussion groups, research meetings, as well as social activities. As required by NSF policy, the program is open to domestic students, and preference will be given to students from schools that do not have a PhD program in Chemistry. Underrepresented minority students and women are especially encouraged to apply. Summer research students have their own research problem, a specific faculty advisor and a specific day-to-day graduate student or postdoctoral mentor. Everybody participates in a weekly group meeting, reporting to each other on their research projects and results in oral, poster, and written form. Discussions of careers, graduate work, and scientific ethics are also part of the experience.

Research problems are available across the broad landscape of contemporary chemical research: structure, mechanism, dynamics, synthesis, spectroscopy and theory; inorganic, organic, organometallic, physical, biological, polymer, nuclear and environmental chemistry. For more specific examples of research projects, click on the link below to see poster titles of students who participated in a recent summer.

Applications due: February 14, 2017
U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents may apply. Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled. We welcome applications by email.
