Job Description

Welcome!  The Department of Chemistry at the University of Kansas is proud to sponsor the National Science Foundation supported Research Experience for Undergraduates for the 27th year. The program provides initial research experiences for 10-12 students in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary research environment. Most participants are recruited from primarily undergraduate institutions with substantially limited or no research infrastructures. Undergraduates attending any U.S. university who are majoring in chemistry or a closely related field, and who are considering a career–and perhaps graduate study–in chemistry, are encouraged to apply.

Key components of this program are career enhancement and educational activities that encourage and prepare the students for graduate studies and careers in emerging and interdisciplinary areas of the chemical sciences. Close interactions between the participants and their faculty, graduate student, and postdoctoral mentors provide guidance and feedback throughout the program and beyond. In addition, the students develop important skills for the oral and written presentation of their research accomplishments. See the 2014 Program Announcement (pdf).

The dates of this year’s program will be May 27th through August 1st, 2014.  Each participant receives a competitive stipend plus full room and board and a travel allowance, a total value of approximately $8,800.
