NSF IGERT 2007 Summer Undergraduate Research Program

The Rice University NSF IGERT in Nanophotonics has five openings available for under represented minorities in a 10-week summer internship.   The program offers excellent multi-disciplinary training in the area of Nanophotonics.  The goal of internship is to introduce students to inter-disciplinary research in science and engineering.  The program provides an excellent introduction to the graduate school environment as well as prepares students to participate in high-tech collaborations in industry.  The internship will begin on Monday, June 4 and conclude on Friday, August 11, 2007.

Research areas include:

Design/simulation/modeling of nanophotonics components, devices and systems fabrication
Methods for nanophotonic components, devices and systems
Fundamentals of nanoscale optics
Applications of nanophotonics, including biomedical applications

Selected candidates will work on research in laboratories in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, or Bioengineering.

Financial Support

A stipend of $330 per week is provided. In addition, housing costs (up to $1200.00) at the Rice University Graduate Apartments is supplemented by the program.  Travel expenses, up to $600.00, is also provided, if needed.

To apply, complete the application, and submit it along with a resume, current transcripts, and two letters of recommendation that confirm you are a student in good standing.  Please also include a statement about your potential for research.  The application materials can be emailed to caresu@rice.edu or printed out and faxed to (713) 348-5686.  The deadline for receipt of application materials is March 2, 2007.

Applicants must be U.S citizens or permanent residents.
