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 8 undergraduate students from May 26th - July 31st. This is the second year of the program. 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, or computer science. Underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as those from academic institutions with limited research opportunities. Each selected participant will receive a $5000 stipend, an on-campus housing allowance, a dining plan, access to the student recreation center, and a conference travel reimbursement of up to $225. Applications Open: December 19th, 2014. Review of Applications begins: February 16, 2015.
