  • One of NSO’s most important activities is providing opportunities for students and teachers to work with our scientists for up to three months during the summer at our observatories in Sunspot, NM, and at Kitt Peak and Tucson, AZ. The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and the Summer Research Assistantship (SRA) programs give students real-world experience working with us and mentorships that help start careers in solar physics. The Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) program is similar, with the expectation that teachers will develop lesson plans for their students and share with them the excitement of studying our home star. Finally, the International Research Experience for U.S. Graduate Students (IRES) provides an opportunity for students to work with the Indian Institute of Astrophysics in Bangalore and get their first international research experiences.

  • The Columbia University Energy Frontier Research Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, supports 10-15 outstanding undergraduates as Summer Research Fellows each year. This Research Experiences for Undergraduates program provides a $3,500 stipend for each successful candidate, free campus housing (worth $2,700) in which you are expected to reside, and possible assistance with round-trip transportation (up to $500 if necessary). Those selected will have an opportunity to participate fully in the activities of one of the nation’s outstanding new interdisciplinary Energy Frontier Research Centers, as well as in other exciting research on campus. This Center draws faculty from the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, and Electrical Engineering, and includes collaborative research with nearby government laboratories (Brookhaven National Laboratory) and industry (IBM). The EFRC focuses its expertise in chemical synthesis, fabrication, manipulation, and characterization to systematically develop understanding of the primary photovoltaic processes in organic and hybrid materials. In addition, it seeks to develop and quantitatively investigate nanostructured materials with potential for extracting multiple electrical charges from a single absorption event, thus establishing a scientific basis for moving the efficiency of these solar cell devices well beyond the Shockley-Queisser efficiency limit. During the RPU program, students will also be involved in workshops, seminars, visits to local industry, recreational activities, a symposium of presentations by RPU students, and other activities.

  • The SURE program goal is to provide undergraduate students in the Physical Sciences and Engineering the opportunity to perform hands-on experiments in a world class research organization. Students will have the opportunity to undertake experimental investigations of condensed matter phenomena at extreme conditions. Using state-of-the-art equipment and diagnostics, material response is examined at different length scales in real time during shock wave and static high-pressure experiments. Understanding condensed matter response at conditions relevant to dynamic loading (shock wave or shockless compression) and static high pressure has been central to advances in fundamental science and modern technology.

  • This REU program is sponsored by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University. WSU is located in Pullman, Washington, a small town in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington. The program consists of 10 weeks working with top research professors and graduate students at WSU. During this time, REU participants will assist in designing smart environments. In addition to taking a 3-hour research methods course, participants will perform hands-on research on topics including design of sensor networks, middleware, machine learning algorithms, and automation algorithms, and will investigate applications of smart environments to health monitoring and energy conservation. Most research ideas will be tested using two on-campus smart environments, and students will present their research results in a poster session at the end of the ten week period. Travel support is available for students who submit their work to a research-related conference. This WSU/EECS REU program is funded by National Science Foundation grant IIS-0647705.
