As Chief Scientist for all of the U.S. Air Force’s human-centered research at Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), I solicit your assistance in helping us spread the word about the Repperger Research Intern program at our Human Effectiveness Directorate. A colleague or acquaintance of yours who works in AFRL suggested I send the information to you for dissemination to applicable students.
The Repperger Research Intern Program honors the life and works of Dr. Daniel W. Repperger (1942-2010), who was one of our top scientists and a mentor of many young engineers and scientists. Through the program, we will be providing 8-10 internships this summer for graduate students or undergraduate students in their junior or senior year to work under the mentorship of an Air Force scientist. Additional information and application instructions are in the attached brochure. Here’s a brief summary of the program:
Summer 2013 programs include:
During the Nebraska Summer Research Program, students receive first-hand exposure to research and the experience of graduate school. They work closely with faculty mentors and research teams of graduate students and other summer scholars. Students also have opportunities to participate in meaningful social and professional development activities outside of the laboratory.
Our online application makes it easy for students to apply. Priority review begins Friday, February 1 and all applications are due Friday, February 15. Students historically underrepresented in graduate education and students from academic institutions where research programs are limited are especially encouraged to apply.
Please feel free to forward this to your students or to download our flyer to post. If you or your students have questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
In addition to the Nebraska Summer Research Program, the Department of Chemistry is seeking one pair (one professor and one undergraduate student) from a four-year college or university to participate in our Faculty/Student Pair Program. Learn more about this program and apply at http://www.chem.unl.edu/summerresearch/. The application deadline for this program is also Friday, February 15.
