** Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) ------------------------------------------------------------ The NYIT REU Site is now accepting applications for Summer 2019.
Please share with your students the announcement below for paid summer research opportunities for undergraduates at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) New York City campus.
With funding by the National Science Foundation, the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program at NYIT is recruiting ten undergraduate students to conduct research with our faculty on hardware and software approaches to securing mobile devices and their networks for 10 weeks during the summer (May 28 - August 2, 2019).
All REU participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, $600 travelallowance, $3,000 housing (estimated) and $24/day (estimated) food allowance. Applications are due on February 28, 2019. Student may apply at the NYIT REU website.
Motivated students are invited to apply for paid summer researchinternships to have access to NYIT's state-of-the-art research facilities and gain valuable hands-on research experiences using network testbeds to simulate malware and attacks on mobile devices and wireless networks, efficient privacy-preserving authentication methodswith novel biometrics for medical devices and smartphones, emotions of populations vulnerable to phishing, and secure sharing of wireless spectrum for body-area networks and connected vehicles. This opportunity is open to only ten students. Since the selection processis very competitive, students are advised to apply early.

Additional Salary Information: All participating students will receive a $5,000 stipend, $600 travel allowance, $3,000 housing (estimated) and $24/day (estimated) food allowance PLUS research experiences, grad school preparation, networking/mentoring opportunities, and visits to state-of-the-art labs, security centers, and corporations.
About New York Institute of Technology REU Site
NYIT REU Site
When it comes to technology, NYIT understands that significant learning occurs outside the classroom. This realization is the driving force behind the development of a faculty-mentored program to help students gain knowledge and take advantage of global, technology-oriented opportunities. The NYIT Research Experience for Undergraduates provides an enhanced opportunity for talented and ambitious undergraduate students to collaborate with NYIT faculty and graduate students on today's cutting-edge research.
Led by Dr. N. Sertac Artan, NYIT's REU program is in anticipation of funding by a prestigious three-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant (January 2019 through December 2021) in its third installment. In the past six years of the program, REU fellows co-authored eight papers published at academic journals and international conferences as a result of their research during the REU program. Details of all research conducted in past years are available at NYIT's REU Archives.
NYIT is one of few REU sites in the NSF Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) directorate that focus on mobile device and wireless network security. With the ob...jective of providing research opportunities to those who are from institutions lacking research opportunities and from under-represented groups, NYIT's REU program has large presence of participants from undergraduate and liberal arts institutions as well as female and minority students. The program provides an opportunity for the undergraduate researchers to collaborate with faculty, graduate students, as well as their REU peers to conduct research in cutting-edge research areas with paramount societal importance and build their confidence as independent researchers.
Students accepted into the highly competitive program spend 10 weeks in the heart of New York City conducting important research with teammates and distinguished faculty members on topics related to security of mobile devices and wireless networks. Students are assigned to a project and mentor based on their research interests, and work toward creating a final poster presentation. The research projects require full-time commitment from participants (5 days a week/40 hours per week), and students may not work while in the program.
The ultimate goal of the REU program is to prepare students for successful STEM careers and further study at the graduate level in their chosen discipline, and to give them the tools and opportunities to present their work at conferences. In addition to the rigorous academic schedule, REU participants will visit labs in the New York City region, attend workshops and networking events, and go on field trips to locations around the city.
