Paid Research Opportunity in Math, Biology, & Engineering


Please find information about the upcoming Multidisciplinary Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program on "Research, Education and Training in Computational Mathematics and Nonlinear Dynamics of Biological, Bio-inspired and Engineering Systems" (June 3 - Aug 2, 2013). More details about the program can be found below. 

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at George Mason University will host a two-year multidisciplinary REU program in computational mathematics and nonlinear dynamics of biological, bio-inspired and engineering systems from June 3 - Aug 2, 2013 . This nine-week summer program will expose thirteen highly qualified undergraduate students and two K-12 teachers to advanced topics in mathematics, problem-solving, visualization techniques and applications to bio-inspired and engineering systems. Selected problems range from Aneurysm mechanics and bioinformatics to Modeling of Micro Air Vehicles, Design of photovoltaic nanodevices, Porous substrates and Phase diagram calculation for materials engineering applications, as well as the design of efficient educational tools. Through these research problems, we hope to encourage students and teachers to learn by discovery and enhance their understanding of the multidisciplinary role of mathematics in engineering, science and medicine. The metro region of Washington, DC is a particularly fertile area for research and work opportunities, including consulting, teaching and government.

Applicants must be undergraduate students with a good academic record preferably completing their junior year by June 2013. Students intending to pursue careers in teaching and mathematics education are also encouraged to apply. Financial support for students include a stipend of $3,375, free on-campus housing and meals, and a travel allowance up to $550. Students with a strong background in advanced calculus, linear algebra and differential equations are eligible. Women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Please note that under NSF rules, only U.S. Citizens and permanent residents are eligible to receive stipends and support for housing and travel costs.

The deadline for receiving all the application material is "March 1, 2013" and accepted applicants will be notified shortly thereafter. For more details on the program and application details, go to the program website:
