Summer Research Opportunities Across Campus

NSF-funded Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Biophysics

The Department of Chemistry hosts an NSF-funded REU Training Site in biophysics directed by Professor Jannette Carey and co-directed by Dr. István Pelczer. This Research Experience for Undergraduates opportunity is restricted to non-Princeton undergraduates. REU students selected from schools with little or no research opportunity spend one summer in Princeton conducting research with participating faculty representing a wide range of departments. The common theme is the application of experimental, theoretical, or conceptual tools from the physical or mathematical sciences or from engineering to solve contemporary problems in biology.

Rising sophomores and rising juniors with an interest in biology who are majoring in chemical engineering, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or physics (not biology) are eligible. REU students who successfully complete a summer’s research period in Princeton are eligible to spend a subsequent undergraduate summer at the Czech Academy of Sciences in Nové Hrady, South Bohemia, Czech Republic. The program pays REU participants’ expenses for both the domestic and international portions of the program: stipend, housing, travel, and for the Princeton segment, a food allowance.
