Research Experience for Undergraduates
Nuclear Physics, Radiobiology, and Nuclear Engineering Summer Program at Idaho State University
Currently, the site is being updated. The application for the REU program is up and the Idaho State University Physics Department is accepting them. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The program begins on May 20th to July 26th, 2013. *Earlier or later starting dates are negotiable.
Application materials are due February 1st.
This program provides a stipend of $4,840, 10 weeks of work experience, free room and board, traveling expenses reimbursed, and activities outside the department such as whitewater rafting, a visit to Yellowstone, camping and hiking. We also provide up to $250 to support REU student travel to professional meetings during the school year following their REU experience to disseminate thier research.
The tentative schedule for the program can be found here.
The following projects are confirmed for the summer of 2013:
Photonuclear production of medical isotopes
Optimization of photon activation analysis for assay of ore
Cerenkov detector construction and testing
Multivariate calibration for data modeling
Radiation hardness of phase change memory materials
Enrichment and isolation of novel radiation resistant microbes
The above is not a complete list. Additional summer 2013 projects will be posted soon, and may include several of the projects from the summer of 2012 listed below:
polarized photon beam development
We would like to thank the National Science Foundation (NSF) for funding the Research Experience for Undergraduates Project #0852060: Nuclear Physics, Radiobiology, and Nuclear Engineering Summer Program at Idaho State University. Without the NSF this program could not be possible.
