Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility REU

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.

DOE & ACS Nuclear Chemistry UG Summer Schools 2023

Applications are due February 1, 2024.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) and Division of Nuclear & Technology of the American Chemical Society (ACS) are sponsoring two intensive six-week Summer Schools in Nuclear & Radiochemistry for undergraduates. Funding is provided by the US Department of Energy.

The students receive an all-expense paid opportunity to complete a 6-week summer course (June 17, 2024 – July 27, 2024) in Nuclear Chemistry and Radiochemistry in either California at San Jose State University or New York at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Selected students earn hours (tuition paid) of undergraduate chemistry credit through either San Jose State University or Stony Brook University (The State University of New York). Students will also receive a stipend of $4,000 for the 6-week program. The program will pay for student travel and housing.

The students will learn the fundamentals of nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry and their applications. A hands-on laboratory component gives the students experience in handling radioactive materials and radiation detectors. The students will meet scientists from academia and national laboratories from across the U.S. who will discuss the exciting opportunities in nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry.

Candidates should be undergraduates with an interest in nuclear science who are presently in their sophomore or junior year of study at a US college or university. They should have completed at least two years of chemistry, one year of physics, and one year of calculus. Applicants must be U.S. citizens.

Nuclear & Radiochemistry Undergraduate Summer School

The U.S. Department of Energy and the American Chemical Society, Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, sponsor an INTENSIVE 6-week course (June 14, 2021 – July 23, 2021) in Nuclear and Radiochemistry for undergraduates held in San Jose, CA or Long Island, NY with 12 students each.

The course consists of lectures on the fundamentals of nuclear science, radiochemistry, and their applications in related fields. Laboratory work introduces state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation used in basic and applied nuclear science. Also included are a Guest Lecture Series and tours of nearby research centers at universities, National Laboratories, and other nuclear facilities. Students meet and interact with prominent faculty and scientists who are working in nuclear and radiochemistry, nuclear medicine, nuclear forensics, and related fields.

Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy. Provided are a stipend of $4000, all tuition and fees, housing, transportation to and from the Summer School location, books, and laboratory supplies. Transferable college credit is awarded through the ACS accredited chemistry programs at San Jose State University (7 units) or the State University of New York at Stony Brook (6 units).
