2007 NREUP (National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program)
|Primary Institution:||University of Texas at Arlington|
|Job Duration:||June 2-July 15, 2007|
|Class Requirement:||Completed Sophomore Year
|Description:||Contingent upon funding, the Department of Mathematics at University of Texas at Arlington will be hosting a summer NREUP (National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program) during June 2-July 14, 2007, sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America with funds provided by the National Science Foundation, the National Security Agency, and the Moody's Foundation. Each participant will be supported with a stipend of $3,200, paid on-campus housing, and an allowance for meal expenses.
Our program is aimed at involving 4 undergraduate minority students in active research under supervision of mathematicians who are dedicated researchers and mentors. The 2007 research topic will be exact solutions to certain nonlinear partial differential equations, known as the Korteweg-de Vries equation and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The objectives are to provide the participants with meaningful research experience, to show them the enjoyment of doing research, to encourage them to pursue advanced degrees in mathematical sciences, and to increase research participation by minority groups. At the end of the program the participants will prepare a written report and give a presentation of their research. The program will be enhanced with some scientific, cultural, and social activities. In addition to participating in quality research, the student researchers will be developing basic research and computational skills, learn about opportunities at the graduate level, and gain skills to present and disseminate research findings. Except for the research topic, the structure of our 2007 NREUP program will be similar to that of our 2006 NREUP program.
We are currently recruiting applicants for our program. Requirements: US citizenship or US permanent residency, minority status (Hispanic, African American, Native American), undergraduate status at least till December 2007, being a good student, background in calculus, some exposure to ordinary differential equations and linear algebra is desirable but not necessary. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Tuncay Aktosun (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible, no later than February 10, 2007.
