The Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility Research Experience for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program is designed to give undergraduate students an introductory research experience in nanotechnology. Each year, we will hire 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. Potential projects span a large range of nanotechnology, from electronic materials to biomedical engineering.
The CNF REU Program runs from approximately the first week of June - the first week of August, plus the NNCI REU Convocation being hosted by a different NNCI site each year in August. Finally, each CNF REU intern writes a two-page report that is published as part of the CNF Research Accomplishments. Altogether, 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, on-campus housing, and all reasonable travel expenses are paid for directly or reimbursed. And of course, the CNF covers all reasonable research expenses!
