REU in Materials Research

Primary Institution: James Madison University
State: VA
Job Duration: 10 weeks
Class Requirement: Completed High School
Citizenship Requirement: U.S. Citizen or U.S. Permanent Legal Resident
Position Type: Research
Discipline(s): Condensed Matter: Structure and Mechanical/Thermal Properties
Nonlinear Dynamics
Description: This is a 10-week REU program in materials research involving faculty in physics, mathematics, geology, and chemistry. Students work with facilities such as our class 10000 clean room, several atomic force microscopes, two scanning electron microscopes, a spectroscopic ellipsometer, a powder x-ray diffractometer, and an electron-beam lithography tool. JMU is a primarily undergraduate institution so all students work in teams directly supervised by faculty members. This makes this a good opportunity for students early in their careers to try out research in a setting in which they will be closely mentored and establish a close working relationship with a faculty member and other undergraduates. (We are currently awaiting word on both internal and external funding for summer 2009.)
Application Deadline: 03/20/2009

Additional Information: The deadlines for applications for JMU Students is Friday, February 27, 2009.
