Portland State University’s Research Experience for UndergraduatesDo you know of an undergraduate student who could benefit from an intensive, summer-long research training program in electron microscopy?Portland State University’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) summer program is an eight-week program that gives students the opportunity to work closely with a PSU faculty member to produce a research project. Each student will learn to operate either a scanning electron or focused ion beam microscope (SEM or FIB), and then use these techniques when working on their independent research projects.The program runs from June 23rd through August 18th, and students will be expected to work approximately 40 hours per week for a $4000 stipend.
We will be accepting applications through March 1st, 2014. Women, veterans, and minority students are strongly encouraged to apply. The application is available online through our website at www.reu.pdx.edu.
More information can be found in the attached flyer and on our website. Please post or forward this email to all parties you feel may be interested.
