Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU+)

The RTNN REU+ program will be organized through the existing REU programs hosted by the Research Triangle Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) and the UNC-CH Department of Chemistry.  Applications should be submitted directly to these programs.  Students will participate in nanotechnology-related research at one of the RTNN partner universities (North Carolina State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill).

Successful applicants for the RTNN REU+ program will participate both as complete members of their host REU program and in additional RTNN-specific programming prior to, during, and following their summer research.  These activities will include a follow-on project in collaboration with a faculty member at their home institution to determine how they can complement an existing class through interactions with the RTNN in the year following their summer program.

The RTNN-Research Triangle MRSEC REU will run May 30 – August 4, 2017.  The program will be held on either Duke’s or NC State’s campus.  Applications are due March 1, 2017.  Visit their website for application instructions and additional information.

The RTNN-UNC Chemistry REU will run May 21 – July 29, 2017.  The program will be held on UNC-CH’s campus.  Applications are due February 27, 2017 at 5 pm.  Visit their website for application instructions and additional information.

All applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.  Students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior years are eligible.  Participants will be provided with a stipend and on-campus housing.

Women, students with disabilities, and underrepresented minority students in science and engineering (defined by NSF as African American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Alaska Native, and Pacific Islander) are encouraged to apply.
