ATTENTION STEM STUDENTS: Summer Research Program Opportunity!

The NSF Engineering Research Center for Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment (MIRTHE), headquartered at Princeton University and with its partners, City College of New York; The Johns Hopkins University; Rice University; Texas A&M and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), announces opportunities for Research Experience for Undergraduates (REUs) in its laboratories. 
 
The MIRTHE REU program is focused on providing students with the opportunity to carry out research at the forefront of mid-IR spectroscopy and engineering.  In addition, we provide a proactive educational program consisting of short courses and lectures, designed to introduce students to the grand challenges of engineering research.  Special seminars also examine the role of science and engineering in society.  Visits to local government and industrial labs in the area are arranged.
 
Students will receive a stipend of $500/week. On-campus housing is available.
 
Undergraduates who will bring diversity by reason of their culture, class, race ethnicity, background, work and life experiences are especially encouraged to apply.  Students must be U.S. Citizens or Permanent residents and must have at least one semester remaining in their undergraduate education after their participation in the REU program.
