Research Experiences for Undergraduates

2007 reu programThe University of Chicago Materials Research Center offers a unique opportunity for qualified undergraduates to experience research at the forefront of materials science through our Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program. During the ten week program, students conduct a well-defined research project under faculty sponsorship, attend lectures by faculty on their research, go on field trips to nearby national laboratories and participate in social opportunities. A stipend, summer housing, and a modest travel allowance are provided by the program. Common themes of all our Imterdisciplin include investigating materials formed far from equilibrium, exploring new paradigms for materials fabrication and response , and exploiting feedback between structure and dynamics. Please go to our website to learn more about our research. IRG 1: Dynamics in Soft Interfaces;  IRG 2: Spatiotemporal Control of Active Materials; and IRG 3: Engineering Quantum Materials and Interactions
