LearnLab Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates
Application for Summer 2013
Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program Description
LearnLab at Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh has an exciting summer research opportunity available to undergraduate students. This research program encourages applications from students who would like to conduct research in the fields of psychology, education, computer science, human-computer interfaces and language technologies. This program seeks broad participation, including members of underrepresented groups as defined by the National Science Foundation (African American, Hispanic, Native American) who may be considering pursuing further graduate study in the learning sciences.
LearnLab’s REU program allows talented undergraduates to spend 8 weeks during the summer in a research laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, or one of our research partners. The REU program aims to make LearnLab’s programs more visible to students not traditionally exposed to our fields. The REU program supports LearnLab’s commitment to training a diverse set of science, technology, education, and psychology leaders.
Applications are encouraged from students who wish to learn to conduct research in a modern academic research laboratory under the guidance of experienced scientists and engineers and experiment in real classroom environments. The REU program will expose students to the excitement and opportunities of a research career. This experience will provide excellent preparation for students interested in subsequently pursuing a Masters or Ph.D. degree. Although students from other years may apply, this opportunity is most fitting for a student at the end of the junior year of undergraduate studies.
Each student will receive a fellowship stipend of $4000 for the eight-week REU program. Food, housing and travel will also be provided. Students will conduct research in an area matched to the interests expressed in the student’s application. Guidance and supervision of the research project will be provided by the faculty member as well as, in some cases, a postdoctoral fellow and/or advanced graduate student.
Seminars specific to those participating in the REU program will be held weekly including seminars on graduate admissions and career opportunities in science, education, computer science and engineering. In addition, LearnLab seminars and those held by Carnegie Mellon’s Human Computer Interaction Institute and Language Technologies Institute and seminars at Pitt’s Language Research and Development Center will be open to the students, giving them exposure to a wide range of research in learning sciences.
REU Program Benefits: There are several benefits that the participating students may receive.
REU Program Dates: Students will begin their research experience on Sunday, June 2, 2013 with a welcoming reception and information session. The REU program will end on Friday July 26, 2013 with a poster session in the afternoon.. Submission of an application indicates that the applicant agrees to be present from June 2 to 4pm, July 26, 2013 inclusive.
Application Deadline: Deadline for applications is February 15, 2013. Students will be informed of our decision by March 1, 2013.
