NNCI REU at Cornell University (CNF)

This program will take place at the Cornell Nanoscale Facility at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. 

The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility Research Experience for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program is designed to give undergraduate students an introductory research experience in nanotechnology. In 2018, we will hire five students who will be hosted by a Cornell faculty member. Each student will work on an independent research project using the advanced resources available at CNF and Cornell. Potential projects span a large range of nanotechnology, from electronic materials to biomedical engineering.

The 2018 CNF REU Program will run from Tuesday, June 5th - Friday, August 10th. A Nano-Convocation is held in August to allow interns the opportunity to present their work to their peers in a concise scientific presentation. CNF REU interns will also participate in the NNCI REU Convocation in Mid-August. Finally, each CNF REU intern writes a two-page report that is published as part of the CNF Research Accomplishments. Altogether, the program offers an excellent ten-week introduction to nanotechnology and a preview of a scientific research career. CNF REU interns receive a $5,000 stipend, on-campus housing, and all reasonable travel expenses are paid for directly or reimbursed. And of course, the CNF covers all reasonable research expenses!
