Student Opportunities

Science outside the Lab

 “Science Outside the Lab” brings a small cohort of graduate student scientists and engineers to Washington, D.C. to explore the relationships among science, innovation, policy, and societal outcomes. This customized free one week version (June 4-10, 2017), sponsored by the Nanotechnology Collaborative Infrastructure Southwest (NCI-SW), will investigate the context of nanotechnology decision-making in government and business at the local, state, federal, and international levels. During the week-long workshop participants meet and interact with groups of people who fund, regulate, shape, critique, publicize, and study nanotechnology and other emerging technologies. This includes people like congressional staffers, lobbyists, funding agency officers, regulators, journalists, academics, museum curators, and others.

To apply to the program, complete this application and email as an attachment to CENTSS@asu.edu or fax to (480-727-8791). Application deadline: March 10, 2017. For more information, please contact Andra Williams at andra.williams@asu.edu

Graduate Student Staff (Peer-to-Peer Network)

The RTNN will be setting up a Peer-to-Peer Network Graduate Student Staff program. Graduate Student Staff will work with distance-use students to run samples and communicate through a real-time visual web link (e.g., Skype, WebEx) with a mail exchange of samples. Graduate student staff will be supported with a stipend supplement. Check back for more information and specific opportunities.

Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (RTNN REU+)

The inaugural summer of our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU+) program was in 2016. Students will participate in nanotechnology-related research at one of the RTNN partner universities with follow-on at students’ home institutions in the year following the summer program. Visit our REU page for more information and applications.


Free Facility Access

RTNN Free-Use of Facilities

In order to further our mission to serve as a hub of cutting-edge nanotechnology innovation and education, the RTNN has established a means to allow members of the nanotechnology and greater scientific communities, who would otherwise not have the financial resources, to use RTNN facilities. Visit our Free-Use of Facilities page for more information and an application form. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis with two priority deadlines per year.
