    ECU NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) - Biomedical Engineering in Simulations, Imaging and Modeling (BME-SIM)

    The Departments of Engineering, Kinesiology, and Physical Therapy at East Carolina University will conduct a 10 week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for 10 undergraduate students. The goal of the BME-SIM REU is to provide a quality research experience to undergraduate students in order to increase awareness of and application to graduate school. At the end of the program students will have a better understanding of how to conduct research, an increased awareness of graduate school, clarification and reinforcement of a STEM career path, and greater identification as an engineer/scientist. Through the REU program students will be exposed to cutting edge research utilizing advanced computational models with applications in biomedical engineering.

    We are seeking rising juniors and seniors from accredited undergraduate institutions who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents to work on a research protocol with senior faculty members. Applicants should have a strong academic record in engineering, basic sciences, math, computer science, or other related discipline. Underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as those from academic institutions with limited research opportunities. Applications from community college students who are transitioning to four-year institutions or within a semester from transferring are also encouraged to apply.  Each selected participant will receive a $5000 stipend, on-campus housing, dining plan, access to the student recreation center, and travel to a conference.

    For more information and to apply, please visit the program homepage.

    Applications are currently being accepted. Starting March 10th, 2017, applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Stephanie George or Dr. Zachary Domire
