2014 REU photosThe Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) and the Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM) are sponsoring research opportunities for undergraduates in disciplines related to materials science. Potential projects span a broad range of topics under the guidance of faculty from the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Civil and Environmental Engineering. The research topics are chosen each year to complement the research of faculty associated with the Princeton Center for Complex Materials.

The REU program is principally focused on providing students with the opportunity to carry out research at the forefront of materials science 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 materials research. Special seminars also examine the role of science and engineering in society. Lab visits to both Princeton labs and industrial labs in the area are arranged.

The REU program will begin on Monday, June 8 and will end on Friday, August 7. Those students selected for the program will receive a weekly stipend of $550/week. Princeton University housing will be available to REU participants.

We encourage applications from students of all science and engineering disciplines. The application period is CLOSED for our Summer 2016 REU program. The application deadline was February 15, 2016 and all aspects of the application were submitted electronically
