Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology May 24 - August 9, 2012 Website for eligibility and application requirements - http://www.nist.gov/surfgaithersburg/ Deadline for applications: 5 p.m. EST February 15, 2012 Setting a Course Toward a Career in Science or Engineering? Curious about physics, electronics, manufacturing, chemistry, materials science, or structural engineering? Intrigued by nanotechnology, fire research, information technology, or robotics? Tickled by biotechnology or biometrics? Have an intellectual fancy for superconductors or, perhaps, semiconductors? Here's your chance to satisfy that curiosity. Spend part of your summer working elbow to elbow with researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), one of the world's leading research organizations and home to three Nobel Prize winners. Gain valuable hands-on experience, work with cutting-edge technology, meet peers from across the nation (from San Francisco to Puerto Rico and from New York to New Mexico), sample the Washington, DC (or Boulder, CO) area. And, no kidding, get paid ($5500) while you're learning. Come be a part of the the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program (SURF) at NIST. SURF students work at NIST for 11 weeks, contributing to an ongoing research project under the guidance of a NIST scientist or engineer from one of the Institute's major laboratories (Physical Measurements, Engineering, Material Measurements, Information Technology, Neutron Research, and Nanoscale Science). In addition to your own personal project, you'll have a chance to tour labs, and be exposed to a weekly lecture series on diverse research projects. Abstracts from this past summer's projects are contained in our SURF Colloquium document (http://www.nist.gov/surfgaithersburg/upload/SURFPromoBook2012.pdf). This will give you an idea on how diverse the SURF projects are. SURF is a competitive program. Applications are ranked and reviewed.
