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.
