The MIT Materials Research Laboratory and the Materials Research Science & Engineering Center sponsor a summer research internship program for rising junior and senior undergraduates in the science and engineering fields. We would be grateful if you would bring it to the attention of your students by posting or forwarding the attached flyer where your students will see it, or pass it on to an appropriate department for posting.

This challenging program brings promising students to MIT to learn and perform research in laboratories in a broad selection of materials science subfields. In addition to providing a stipend and round-trip travel expenses, we host presentations and group discussions on topics relevant to materials scientists, such as graduate school, careers in materials science, creating effective poster presentations, and management of intellectual property. At the conclusion of the program, the students present their individual research results at a poster session. The summer research internship, offered each year since 1983, affords students an invaluable experience in top-notch cutting edge research.

The summer scholars program is funded by the National Science Foundation REU program (grant number DMR-1419807). MIT is an equal opportunity employer. Women, minorities and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

The Center for Materials Science and Engineering and the Materials Processing Center at MIT jointly sponsor a nine-week summer research internship program for undergraduates. This summer, we will offer intern positions to ten sutdents who will work in faculty-led research groups on the MIT campus. Attached is flyer about the program that I hope you will share with your students.  Because research projects offered in this program are led by faculty from many different departments at MIT,  undergraduates majoring in a broad range of science and engineering disciplines are welcome.Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who will enter their junior or senior year of study in the fall of 2014 to be eligible to participate in this program. Women and members of other underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

The application deadline is February 12, 2014. If you or your students have any questions about the program or the application, please feel free to contact me.
