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 have yet to be determined, but will most likely be similar to what was offered in 2013, which are listed below:
Photonuclear production of medical isotopes
Optimization of photon activation analysis for assay of ore
Cerenkov detector construction and testing
Multivariate calibration for data modeling
Radiation hardness of phase change memory materials
Enrichment and isolation of novel radiation resistant microbes
A repeat of one or more projects from 2012 is also possible. 2012 projects were:
polarized photon beam development
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.
