Research Experience for Undergraduates
In 2016 the program will run from June 6 through August 12. Accommodations may be possible for students on the quarter system who cannot start that early. The anticipated stipend will be $6,000, and each student will receive an additional housing/subsistence allowance as well as travel expenses to and from the REU sites.
The program will begin with a Sloan Boot Camp short-course, held in Sunspot, NM, which will introduce all student participants to the SDSS data and analysis tools. Once at the REU host institutions, the majority of the students’ time will be spent on research. There will also be twice-weekly required online meetings, one serving as a check-in and status report with the Program Coordinator and the other serving as a professional development seminar series, where students will learn about topics such as scientific ethics, conference etiquette, professional manuscript preparation, and graduate school opportunities. Funds may also be available for participants to attend the SDSS-IV Collaboration Meeting in Madison, WI in late June, and/or to present their results at a scientific conference later in the year.
Please apply here. The application deadline, including receipt of all ancillary materials, is due February 15, 2016. Review of applications will begin shortly thereafter, and acceptance notifications will be sent on or around March 4, 2016.
Women, minorities, disabled persons, and veterans are especially encouraged to apply.
