REU: Nanoscale Assembly of Molecules and Materials

The colors of butterfly wings, the strength of an abalone shell, and the adhesive properties of gecko feet arise from the arrangement of smaller building blocks which comprise these structures. REU students at Indiana University Bloomington will engage in in-depth study of materials chemistry and, in particular, how materials assemble from smaller entities (atoms and molecules) into larger structures and the function of assembled forms. The projects for REU students include both synthesis and characterization of materials and their building blocks, with opportunities for students with interests in all areas of chemistry.

Students in the program will engage in a 10-week summer research experience beginning in May 2020. They will participate in weekly career development discussions and visit local companies such as Eli Lilly and CRANE Naval Surface Warfare Center.

Participants will receive a $500 per week stipend, a travel allowance up to $500, on-campus housing, and a meal allowance.

More information is available on their website and flyer.

Applications will open in November and are due January 31, 2020.
