    Sent on behalf of Pamela Pena Martin . . .

    The Illinois Materials Research Science and Engineering Center( (I-MRSEC) will host an NSF-sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program in summer 2021. Undergraduate students accepted into the program will come to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Urbana, IL to spend 10 weeks over the summer carrying out cutting-edge, meaningful scientific research under the mentorship of I-MRSEC faculty in an interdisciplinary environment on projects related to magnetic materials and nanomaterials, with both experimental and computational projects available. Participants receive training aimed to develop not only scientific research skills, but also communication skills and grad school/career preparation. No prior research experience required, just enthusiasm for learning and research!

    * Program dates: June 1 – August 6, 2021
    * Compensation: Students receive a $5,000 stipend, plus housing, some meals, and travel funds
    * Students studying materials science, physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, or related disciplines are encouraged to apply
    * Application deadline: February 15, 2021
    * Open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents 18 years old or older who are currently enrolled in 2- or 4-year programs, will complete their sophomore year by June 2021, and will not complete a bachelors degree before Fall 2021
