MTSU’s Department of Chemistry is excited to host 8 outstanding undergraduate researchers from across the US during an intense fun-packed summer in 2021.
We welcome you to apply to this unusual REU program Dec. 7th – Feb. 23rd! Review of applications starts February 13th and continues until the program is filled.
Activities. Each member of the diverse cohort will spend nine weeks pursuing state-of-the-art research projects in inorganic, organic, organometallic, mechanistic biochemistry, or ceramics with a chosen faculty mentor, and interact with seven other faculty who specialize in working with undergraduate students through workshops, field trips, and social events. Participants will learn about X-ray crystallography and other analytical methods to characterize materials. They will build a resume and soft skills during a series of workshops.
Who Should Apply? We are seeking enthusiastic undergraduate students who are US citizens or permanent residents. Those in underrepresented minority groups and/or from schools that do not provide an opportunity for research are especially encouraged to apply.
Location: MTSU is in Murfreesboro, just 35 miles south of Nashville and centrally located with access to many fun places to visit and learn from.
