REU at University of Nesbraska Lincoln (NCMN)

NNCI REU at U. Nebraska-Lincoln

UNL picThe Nebraska Nanoscale Facility (NNF) is a member of the NSF-funded National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) program which includes 16 major research centers in nanomaterials throughout the US. NNF, with support  from the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience (NCMN) provides researchers from academia,  government, and industry access to facilities with leading-edge instrumentation which enables innovations, discoveries, and contributions to education and commerce.
Individual Students: NNF offers a 10-week summer fellowship that provides undergraduate students with an opportunity for interdisciplinary research in a nanoscale science or engineering laboratory on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus. The Nebraska Nanoscale Facility summer research REU includes faculty mentors from the following university departments:  Physics, Mechanical & Materials Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering. The fellowships will carry a $4,500 stipend for ten weeks of research.

Faculty-Student Pairs: In addition, the Nebraska Nanoscale Facility invites faculty to apply for NNF's Professor/Pair Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program this summer in Lincoln, Nebraska.  We are looking for faculty/student pairs from regional four-year colleges and universities to participate in summer research with NNF faculty.  The goal is to provide research experiences which will benefit both the participants and NNF projects. It is expected that the professor/student pairs continue to expand on NNF-related research at their home institutions during the academic year. A summer stipend of $5000/month for the professional member will be provided for up to two months of full-time commitment to the NNF project. The student will receive a weekly salary of $450 plus free room/board for up to 10 weeks of work on a research project.
