Research Experience for Undergraduates
Nuclear Physics, Radiobiology, and Nuclear Engineering Summer Program at Idaho State University
The program runs May 19th to July 25th, 2014. *Earlier or later starting dates are negotiable.
Application materials are due February 1st, 2014.
This program provides a stipend of $5,000, 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.
Projects for 2014 are listed below:
Cerenkov detector construction and testing
Detector design and construction for homeland security
Multivariate calibration for data modeling
Preparation of a custom calibration material for activation analysis
Computational drug design with Vitrual ligands
Computational design of novel anti-parasitic agents
Computational development of breast cancer therapeutics
Density functional theory calculations of NMR parameters for enzymes
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.
