Research Opportunities for Undergraduates

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

Motivated and talented students are invited to apply for paid summer research internships to gain hands-on research experience in stimulating the spread of malware on smartphones, implementing cryptographic algorithms and authentication schemes for smartphones, studying topology control of wireless networks, geolocating smartphones, detecting physical attack on a network of smartphones, and developing privacy-protected medical sensing methods using smartphones. This opportunity is open to only ten students and since the selection process is very competitive students are advised to obtain letters of recommendation from their professors.

Carnegie Mellon - University of Pittsburgh Joint Summer Undergraduate Program in Computational Neuroscience

Undergraduates interested in receiving research training in computational neuroscience are encouraged to apply to an NIH-sponsored summer program at the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition in Pittsburgh.

The Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition is a joint interdisciplinary program of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. The 2015 program will most likely run from May 26 through July 31, 2015 (pending confirmation on dormitory availability). The final deadline for application is Feb 16, 2015. All participants must be United States citizens or permanent residents, must be enrolled at a 4-year accredited institution, and must be in their sophomore or junior year at the time of application. Any undergraduate may apply, but the program is especially interested in attracting students with strong quantitative backgrounds with some experience in calculus, statistics and/or computer programming. Experience in neuroscience is not required. Students from groups underrepresented in the sciences are encouraged to apply.

The core of the program is the opportunity to carry out an individual mentored research project working closely with a faculty mentor. Other aspects of the scientific program include: 12 faculty lectures on computational neuroscience at the beginning, followed by student presentations and discussion of articles from the scientific literature, presentations on career options and scientific ethics, and a concluding symposium in which students present their research.
