Department of Physics at the University of Arkansas will host National Science funded REU program in 2020. Selected undergraduate students will perform frontier research for 10 weeks during the summer on experimental and theoretical projects in one of their chosen research areas.
Nano-materials and Condensed Matter
Photonics, Lasers, and Quantum Optics
Biophysics and soft Condensed Matter
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.
Physics majors or those in fields related to Optics, Biophysics, and Materials Science are eligible to apply. Students from small colleges and groups that are underrepresented in science and engineering, including women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
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 complete the following steps by Feb 15, 2020. Applications received after the deadline will be considered if any positions remain open.
(You will be asked to complete online application and enter research projects of your choice. You will also upload your CV/resume, transcripts, and statement of interest in PDF format, and make arrangements to send two recommendation letters.)
