NNCI REU at Cornell University (CNF)

This program will take place at the Cornell Nanoscale Facility at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. 

The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility Research Experience for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program CNF imageis designed to give undergraduate students an introductory research experience in nanotechnology. In 2017, we will hire five students who will be hosted by a Cornell faculty member. Each student will work on an independent research project using the advanced resources available at CNF and Cornell. Potential projects span a large range of nanotechnology, from electronic materials to biomedical engineering. 

The CNF program will run from June 6th - August 11th. The program culminates with the CNF & PARADIM REU Nano-Convocation held at Cornell. Finally, each CNF REU intern writes a two-page report that is published as part of the CNF Research Accomplishments. All together, the program offers an excellent ten week introduction to nanotechnology and a preview of a scientific research career. CNF REU interns receive a $5,000 stipend and housing, and all reasonable travel expenses are paid for directly or reimbursed. 

CNF REU participants will participate in the NNCI REU Convocation at Georgia Tech in Mid August. 

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 (5:00 p.m. Pacific, 8:00 p.m. Eastern)
