NSF Division of Materials Research (DMR) supported Research Experiences for Undergraduates (RE)-site at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is inviting applications for the Summer 2021. We offer REU-projects in five research clusters: (1) computational materials research/machine learning (2) materials under extreme conditions (3) materials for energy applications, (4) materials for sensors and laser applications, and (5) biomaterials for implants, tissue engineering and drug delivery applications.
This REU experience will be offered in a hybrid model which will include fully remote participation for computational research projects and partly remote and partly on ground lab experiences for experimental research projects within the constraints of social distancing and other laboratory safety measures. The undergraduates will carry out the analysis of data generated in their research projects in a fully remote fashion and make Zoom presentations on completed research to faculty mentors and other undergraduates participating in this program.
For program information contact program director Yogesh Vohra (email@example.com) and for application questions contact program coordinator Charita Cadenhead (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The application deadline is March 15th, 2021. Apply using the following web-site.
Telecommuting is allowed.
Additional Salary Information: The program will offer 10-weeks flexible summer program during May-August 2021. The program will pay $5,000 over the entire work period involving 400 hours of remote/hybrid research with a faculty mentor at UAB.

Our REU Program
The UAB National Science Foundation – Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) “Regional Initiative to Promote Undergraduate Participation in Experimental and Computational Materials Research”
The NSF REU program provides a 10-week, hands-on research experience for undergraduate students. During the 10-week period, participants will work in the labs of some of UAB’s renown scientists. The research represents actual projects that will contribute, in some way, to the work already being conducted in the labs.
In the video, REU Program Director, Dr. Yogesh K. Vohra discusses the objective of the REU Program, followed by 2013 REU Robert Reeves (pictured), explaining his research project and how it fit into the overall scheme of existing work being conducted in the lab.
