Summer Undergraduate Research at Cornell

Here is an email I recently received.


The Department of Astronomy of Cornell University is pleased to announce its 2018 Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program.  Details are at

Students will work on individual research projects with Cornell faculty and research staff on a wide range of topics in planetary science, astronomical instrumentation, astrophysics, general relativity and cosmology. In addition to conducting individual research projects, students will also participate in a series of activities including lectures, roundtables and workshops. Students interested in computer science and engineering are also encouraged to apply.

For each participant, a stipend of $5,000 will be provided for the ten week session, plus up to $1,500 for housing and meals. The program will also provide reasonable support for travel to a professional meeting to present scientific results. Program dates are June 1 to August 9 (but participation may be adjusted for conflict with academic schedules). Undergraduate students who will graduate after January 2019 and who are US citizens or permanent residents may apply. Students must have completed at least one year of undergraduate academic training by June 2017. Eight Research Assistantships will be available.

To view the research projects and to apply, please visit the above link.

Completed applications AND supporting materials must be received by Tuesday, February 6, 2018.

Cornell University is an equal opportunity employer.
