Engineering and Technology: Materials, Physics: Computational, Physics: Condensed Matter
The Center for Emergent Materials (CEM) REU program focuses on fundamental and applied science of exotic and novel materials and next-generation electronics that move toward a new generation of low-power-dissipation high-density electronics. Projects range from Injection and detection of spin-polarized electrons in silicon or graphene to growth characterization of complex oxide multilayer structures for computer memory applications as well as modeling the behavior of skyrmion magnetic interfaces.
During the 10-week program, you will conduct experimental/theoretical/computational research projects with an Ohio State University faculty mentor and a graduate or postdoctoral fellow from the CEM. You will have an opportunity to participate in professional development activities that will prepare you for graduate school and research-related careers, network with peers and take part in various social events.
Currently the summer 2021 program is planned to be hosted virtually. The program includes a stipend of $5000 and access to the OSU library. If circumstances change and the program can transition to on-campus, additional support includes: reasonable travel costs, housing (dorm room – two people per room) and local bus transportation.
Please Note: We have a separate application process for interested applicants found on our website.
6 openings. Telecommuting is allowed.
Additional Salary Information: Full stipend for 10 weeks
About The Ohio State University
The Center for Emergent Materials, located at The Ohio State University, is one of a network of Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC) funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The MRSEC program funds teams of researchers from several different disciplines who work collaboratively on materials research in order to address fundamental problems in science and engineering. By working in teams, called Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRG), the researchers at CEM tackle scientific problems that are too large and complex for a scientist working alone to solve. There are two IRGs at the Center for Emergent Materials focused on researching the quantum mechanical phenomenon called “spin” in order to understand and engineer functional nanostructures.
