Summer Research Program in Solid State and Materials Chemistry

General Information
Institution Name: 
University of Oregon / Multi-institutional
Program Information: 

This is a nine-week summer program in solid state chemistry research for undergraduate and college faculty, under the direction of a recognized authority in the field. The program starts with tutorial sessions at the University of Oregon (6/13–6/20). After the tutorial the participants will travel to a university or industrial laboratory of their choice for a eight-week research program, and will then reconvene at Oregon State University for a final symposium (8/14–8/15) before the trip home.

SUMMIT- Summer in Materials for Information Technology

General Information
Institution Name: 
IBM Almaden Research Ctr/San Jose State University
Program Information: 

This joint program is a unique academic/industrial research collaboration between San Jose State University (SJSU) and the IBM Research Division's Almaden Research Center (ARC). It is supported by an REU grant from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense and provides stipends for undergraduate students and teachers to work on collaborative, mentored research projects with research scientists at ARC and professors at SJSU. The participants may work at either or both institutions depending upon the research topic, though most work at ARC. There is a special seminar series covering a range of topics including ethics in research, technical presentation skills and current research at both institutions. There are also career workshops and discussions which the participants are encouraged to attend. Interns may attend the many technical seminars which are given over the summer. Thus, in addition to working on a research project, each participant also gains perspectives on basic and applied chemistry and materials science in academic and industrial settings. The program encompasses projects in the areas of chemistry, engineering, and materials science of materials with special relevance to the microelectronics, semiconductor, and computer industries. Some examples of projects areas: polymer/organic synthesis, photolithography and the chemistry of photoresists, nanotechnology, spectroscopy, microscopy (TEM, SEM, AFM), instrumentation software/hardware, thin film preparation/processing, and materials analysis. Several of the projects require strong computer skills. Each participant writes a summary report of their research and gives a poster presentation at the end of the summer.

The internships are designed for students who have completed at least one year of chemistry and/or chemical engineering course and lab work. Preference is given to chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science majors but outstanding candidates majoring in related areas are invited to apply. Applications are especially encouraged from students from primarily undergraduate institutions and from members of groups underrepresented in science and technology. SJSU administers the program and the stipends under the grant. Students receive a stipend of $4500 for ten weeks. Free housing is available in SJSU dormitories for non-local participants and travel expenses will be reimbursed up to a limit determined from the participant’s home address. The program start date is June 8, 2009 (or later to accommodate academic calendar), by arrangement for teachers. Students must complete an application, write an essay, provide an official transcript and a one page resume, and arrange for two letters of recommendation to be submitted.

Projects for summer 2009 may be found at

Application forms are available at http://www.almaden.ibm.com/st/info/studentopps/nsfstudent/NSFapplic.html or by sending e-mail to reu@us.ibm.com or by calling (408) 927-1605. Participants must be US citizens or permanent legal residents of the US.

Please note: funding is pending for 2009-2011.

Center for Enabling New Technologies through Catalysis (CENTC)

General Information
Institution Name: 
University of Washington
Program Information: 

The Center for Enabling New Technologies through Catalysis (CENTC) is the first NSF-funded Center for Chemical Innovation and is using catalysis to approach some of the most pressing problems of our times. Undergraduates majoring in the chemical sciences are invited to apply to conduct research within the center during the summer of 2009. Choose from 16 research groups in 12 locations throughout the US and Canada. Selected applicants will receive a competitive stipend and compensation for travel and housing. The program is 8-10 weeks depending on location and dates are flexible. The goal of the program is to introduce promising undergraduates to the excitement of doing important and collaborative research, engaging research personnel from research groups around the country.
