Research Experience for undergraduates in ChemistryLocation: Colorado State University
Agency: National Science Foundation
Due Date: February 15, 2019
Description: We will support ~10 undergraduates from institutions outside of Colorado State University and several CSU undergraduates as they pursue independent research projects in chemistry, materials science and nanotechnology. Students will be involved in exciting cutting-edge projects. They will learn how to formulate and test hypotheses as well as perform experiments and computations, collect and analyze data, and develop interpretations for those results. During the course of these studies, the research participants will make use of state-of-the-art techniques and instrumentation available in our department. The main focus of this 10-week summer program is the research that each undergraduate student performs under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Undergraduate student participants work in the faculty mentor’s laboratory and participate fully in the research group activities. Frequently, a graduate student or postdoctoral associate will mentor REU students in addition to regular contact with the faculty advisor.
