STROBE Research Experience for Undergraduates in Imaging Sciences


View this Opportunity's Website 

an IBP member program

Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
Spend a summer learning about cutting-edge imaging science at STROBE, one of the newest NSF Science and Technology Centers in the United States. Your efforts will help push the limits of real-time functional imaging by advancing and combining different imaging modalities including visible microscopy, X-ray, nano-probe, and electron microscopy. STROBE brings together scientists and students from the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of California at Los Angeles, the University of California at Berkeley, Fort Lewis College, Florida International University, and the University of California at Irvine. Several national laboratories, industries, and international institutions are also partnering with STROBE.

Please fill out the STROBE Undergraduate Application Form and attach pdf documents of the following:

1 page statement-include the institution and researcher you would like to work with (see more information below), an explanation of why you'd like to work with this researcher, and a little bit about yourself, your motivations, and your interest in STROBE and imaging science.

Resume/CV that includes courses taken and in progress.

Letter of recommendation from a faculty advisor.

All programs include $4,000-5,000 stipend and additional funding may be available for housing/travel for those who need it.

Program dates vary but are typically 8-10 weeks, include research in a supervised lab experience, supporting group and social activities, and academic, science, and career development opportunities.

Undergraduates will present their summer findings at the STROBE Summer Undergraduate Research Scholar Symposium in August.

Overall questions can be directed to Tess Eidem- tess.eidem@colorado.edu
