Description: The Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico invites applications for the NSF-funded Research Experience for Undergraduates program. Students selected for the program will work with staff scientists on projects related to ongoing research or instrumentation development. Students will be exposed to the interdisciplinary character of this unique research facility through lectures by the staff and visiting scientists, seminar series, tours of the observatory facilities and frequent informal discussions with staff and scientists. You will need to select three choices for the research areas of observatory science from Radio Astronomy, Solar System Radar, Atmospheric Science, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science to which you wish to apply. Students are also expected to have the opportunity to conduct hands-on observing with the 305-m telescope. Participating REU students will reside in Visiting Scientist Quarters at the observatory, where meals are available in a cafeteria. Room and board will be covered.
