Department of Physics at the University of Arkansas will host National Science funded REU program in 2019. Physics majors or those in fields related to Optics and Materials Science are eligible to apply. Selected undergraduate students will perform frontier research for 10 weeks during summer 2017 on experimental and theoretical projects in one of their chosen research areas.
Additional activities will include: Social events jointly with other REU's, field trips to industrial labs, seminars on ethics, use of a research library, and technical writing and research presentations.
Nano-materials and Condensed Matter
Photonics, Lasers, and Quantum Optics
Biophysics and soft Condensed Matter
Undergraduates with Physics Majors or those in a field related to Optics and Materials Science are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to those applicants who have completed 60 hours of college credit prior to the program start date with GPA greater than 3.0 (4.0 scale). US citizenship or permanent residency is required for NSF-REU fellowship.
Students who will graduate before December of the program year are not eligible.
FELLOWSHIP: Funding from the National Science Foundation will provide Stipend of $5000 for each participant, Room and Board Allowance sufficient to cover dormitory and meal plan, Travel Support from and to home town of participants, Field Trip: sometime in June, to high-tech industrial labs in the Dallas area.
APPLICATION: Interested applicants should should complete the following steps by March15, 2018. Applications received after the deadline will be considered if any positions remain open.
(You will be asked to complete online application, enter reserach projects of your choice and statement of interest. You will also upload your CV/resume, transcripts in PDF format, and two recommendation letters.)
