The CCMR Career Advancement Program for Engineers and Scientists (CCMR CAPES) is designed to improve the competitiveness of Cornell graduate students and postdoctoral scholars entering the workforce, in part by providing training in the important "real-world" skills that are often overlooked in traditional graduate programs, such as public speaking, proposal writing, and effective interview techniques. The CAPES program will also give students a realistic and unbiased view of academic and non-academic career opportunities.
2017 REU dates: Monday, June 5 -Friday, August 11
The Cornell Center for Materials Research is offering a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in 2017. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on interdisciplinary materials research projects involving chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering disciplines. Students will also participate in an organized program of lectures, laboratory visits and a variety of recreational activities.
The 10-week program takes place on Cornell’s Ithaca campus and includes: a stipend valued at $4,400; housing in a Cornell University dorm; and additional travel funds for non-CU students.
Support for the REU program is provided by the NSF MRSEC program (DMR-1120296) and the REU Site program (DMR-1063059).
