Undergraduate Research at the Nano-Bio Interface

General Information
Institution Name: 
Nano/Bio Interface Center at the University of Pennsylvania
Program Information: 

The Nano/Bio Interface Center (NBIC) at the University of Pennsylvania seeks highly qualified and motivated undergraduate applicants for its Undergraduate Research at the Nano-Bio Interface program for summer 2014.

This 10-week program is designed to give undergraduate students the opportunity to work with scientists on the cutting-edge of nanoscale research. NBIC capitalizes on Penn’s recognized strengths in design of molecular function and quantification of individual molecules, and has led interdisciplinary, internationally recognized research around the themes of biomolecular optoelectronic function and molecular motions.

Students in this summer research program will work with a mentor in an NBIC investigator’s laboratory on a project appropriate for the duration of the program. Students will gain experience with substantial aspects of doing science: experimental design, data collection and communication of results. Important components of the program are the activities that complement the lab research: seminars, paper discussions, career sessions and skills workshops. Themes that will underscore program activities include diversity and inclusion in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields and ethical and societal issues related to nanotechnology.  

Student participants will earn a $5000 stipend (before taxes, paid in installments). The summer’s cohort of students will be housed together, within walking distance of the university. Students will need to pay for their own housing, but at a group/reduced rate. Philadelphia is an exciting place to live for the summer, with many social and recreational activities.

Program at-a-glance

Focus: Nanoscale research opportunities across a wide range of disciplines from materials science, mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, bioengineering, physiology, chemical engineering and electrical engineering.

Dates: June 2 – August 8, 2014 (10 weeks)

Location: University of Pennsylvania, Nano-Bio Interface Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Eligibility: You must be an enrolled undergraduate student, who will not graduate before the summer program ends. Students attending a college or university other than Penn are invited to apply.* You also must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.

The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented students from diverse backgrounds. We strongly encourage women, underrepresented minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans to apply. One of the program’s goals is to have enough underrepresented minority participation in each cohort to explore diversity in STEM issues in meaningful and effective ways.

Stipend: $5000 (before taxes, 9 AM – 5 PM full-time participation for the duration of the program is expected)

Application Components: a) online application form, b) personal statement, c) two letters of recommendation, d) official transcripts and e) resume. These components are described in the application form below.

Application Deadline: 5 PM, Feb. 28, 2014 (applicants will be notified of the status of their application by April 1, 2014)
