Summer 2018 NSF REU at CLEVELAND STATE UNIVERSITY: Synthesis, Assembly, and Characterization of Soft Matter
The departments of Physics and Chemical & Biomedical Engineering at Cleveland State University invite you join us in conducting cutting edge soft matter research. Build your research and scientific communication skills in a supportive environment by participating in our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Program Dates: May 29 – August 3, 2018
Projects: electron imaging of soft matter systems; design and characterization of protein-based materials; volume phase transition in polymer microgels; Janus particles; assembly of anisotropic nanoparticles; imaging of polymers on surfaces; microfluidic channels and mixers; optical study of cellular microsensation to fluid flow.
Support: $5000 stipend (for 10 weeks; housing provided at no charge); up to$500 travel funds to CSU; $500 conference travel funds after completion of REU.
Eligibility: current undergraduate students who are US citizens and permanent residents. Underrepresented minorities and women are encouraged to apply.
