Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility
Research Experience for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program
2017 CNF REU PROGRAM SUMMARY
The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program is designed to give undergraduate students an introductory research experience in nanotechnology. In 2017, we will hire five students who will be hosted by a Cornell faculty member. Each student will work on an independent research project using the advanced resources available at CNF and Cornell. Interns will take advantage of our training processes to quickly become proficient in advanced laboratory practices. Projects are scaled to be challenging yet achievable within the program's ten-week time frame. The 2017 CNF & PARADIM REU Program Application!
Our 2017 program will run from Tuesday, June 6th - Friday, August 11th, with interns arriving in Ithaca on June 3rd and departing on August 12th. The program culminates with the CNF & PARADIM REU Nano-Convocation. Finally, each CNF REU intern writes a two-page report that is published as part of the CNF Research Accomplishments. Reports are due before interns depart. All together, the program offers an excellent ten week introduction to nanotechnology and a preview of a scientific research career.
CNF REU interns receive a $5,000 stipend and housing, and all reasonable travel expenses are paid for directly or reimbursed. We also cover the costs of all CNF lab use and some research materials (cleanroom notebook, safety glasses, etc.). While we do not provide a meal plan, a great deal of free food is regularly available!
