In this summer REU, students will work on research projects under faculty mentors that draw from a range of approaches (classical biochemical and genetic to non-trivial theoretical models that require computation) to study naturally-occurring genetic networks, artificial genetic and metabolic networks, and biomolecular structure, function, and evolution.
The goal of this program, open only to community college students, is to provide you with first-hand experience in cutting-edge research in the evolutionary genetics of animal behavior. You will participate by conducting experiments on fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster), forming hypotheses about the evolution of behavior, reading papers from the scientific literature, and interacting with graduate students and faculty.
The focus of this REU is to explore new technologies and approaches in nanotechnology and electrochemical devices that address climate change, energy, and environmental sustainability through research projects focusing on Processes to Reduce Greenhouse Gases, Energy Storage and Management, and Water Purification. This REU is specifically for community college students in the Greater Houston Area to explore sustainable solutions that lead to a future where oil and natural gas are converted efficiently into hydrogen and valuable carbon materials, where we have efficient tools to store and convert energy, and where new physical and chemical processes increase access to clean water in all parts of the globe.
This is an 8-week summer research program which takes place between June 3, 2024 and July 26, 2024.
Undergraduates will be fully immersed in a research environment and conduct a rigorous project that has implications for real-world problems. Topics are diverse such as patient safety, hiring and personnel selection, discrimination, driving, health psychology, human-computer interaction, human-automation interaction, cybersecurity, election ballots, workplace conditions, leadership, language comprehension and production, sustained attention, aging, emotion regulation, education, usability, teamwork and training. Students also will attend research presentations by faculty mentors, and professional development activities on topics such as workshops on writing resumes, giving oral presentations, and interviewing for a job; writing a research paper and an essay for graduate school applications; and creating a conference poster.
Support includes a stipend of $4800, housing and meals, and travel funds.
Rice University offers a new REU program in Quantum Technologies. The Q-REU fellows will be mentored by a Rice faculty in the departments of Physics & Astronomy, Electrical and Engineering and Applied Physics and will be offered the unique opportunity to perform cutting-edge research in atomic physics, quantum optics, photonics and quantum devices. The Q-REU is administered by the Weiss school of Natural Science and it will start on May 22 and end on July 29.
RLEAD will provide a 10 weeks research and professional development experience to undergraduate students in chemistry interested in topics related to Chemical Nanosciences. The RLEAD program will provide students with the tools and experiences necessary to become proficient researchers in nanoscale sciences, while making available leadership and professional development training tailored to the needs of each participant.
During the 10-week Rice STAT-DATASCI program, participants will work closely with faculty, postdoctoral, and/or graduate student mentors on current, cutting-edge research projects. Other program activities include technical and professional development workshops, a guest speaker series, community-building cohort meetings, and an end-of-program poster presentation. Support includes a $7000 stipend and on-campus housing accommodations.
