Application Deadline: February 14, 2023
The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility (CNF) is a national user facility that supports a broad range of nanoscale science and technology projects by providing state-of-the-art resources coupled with expert staff support.
During the summer of 2024, CNF will host a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CNF REU) program from June 4th through August 9th. The chosen undergraduates taking part in this ten-week program will receive hands-on nanoscience and technology experience through research, with applications to bio-engineering, chemistry, electronics, materials science, optics, optoelectronics, physics, and the life sciences.
CNF REU interns work with their assigned faculty and graduate students on projects using the unique resources offered at CNF and Cornell University. Convocations are held in August to allow interns the opportunity to present their work to their peers in concise scientific presentations. Interns also must complete a written report, akin to a research paper, summarizing the findings of their research project. These reports are published and distributed to the interns and sites, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and many others.
CNF REU interns receive a $6,000 stipend, plus housing and reasonable travel expenses. Full participation in the ten-week program, convocations, program evaluations, and final reporting are all mandatory.
More information is available on the CNF REU webpage and on Cornell’s experience website.
Online application materials are due Wednesday, February 14, 2024. Recommendations are due one week later, by Wednesday, February 21, 2024.
