Description: This Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project is a nine week program where students work collaboratively on a wide variety of materials science projects.  

The research activities of LA-SiGMA are organized into four areas: electronic materials, energy materials, biomolecular materials and cyberinfrastructure.

These are broad, and sometimes overlapping, areas where faculty from diverse departments (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computing Engineering, Biomolecular Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, etc.) collaborate in multidisciplinary projects. Our REU students will learn how to use some of the nation's largest supercomputers, may participate in the setup and management of large-scale simulations, and may take on an important role in the analysis and visualization of the simulation results.
Stipend: $4,500.00 for the 9-10 week period
Benefits: Housing
Travel Reimbursement
