Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The Center for Emergent Materials (CEM) REU program focuses on fundamental and applied science of exotic and novel materials and next-generation electronics that move toward a new generation of low-power-dissipation high-density electronics. Projects range from Injection and detection of spin-polarized electrons in silicon or graphene to growth characterization of complex oxide multilayer structures for computer memory applications as well as modeling the behavior of skyrmion magnetic interfaces.

During the 10-week program, you will conduct experimental/theoretical/computational research projects with an Ohio State University faculty mentor and a graduate or postdoctoral fellow from the CEM. You will have an opportunity to participate in professional development activities that will prepare you for graduate school and research-related careers, network with peers and take part in various social events.

The program includes a stipend of $6000 and access to the OSU library. Additional support includes: reasonable travel costs, housing (dorm room - two people per room) and local bus transportation.
