University of Nebraska Lincoln’s summer program offers research opportunities in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields in addition to an interdisciplinary Minority Health Disparities program aimed at converting cutting edge social and behavioral research into an understanding and reduction of health disparities among minorities.
Summer 2016 research programs include:
- Bioenergy Systems
- Biomedical Engineering
- Minority Health Disparities
- Mobile Security
- Nanohybrid Functional Materials
- Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure
- Optics and Laser Physics
- Redox Biology
- Sustainability of Civil Infrastructures in Rural Environments
During the Nebraska Summer Research Program, students receive first-hand exposure to research and the experience of graduate school. They work closely with faculty mentors and research teams of graduate students and other summer scholars. Students also have opportunities to participate in meaningful social and professional development activities outside of the laboratory.
Priority review begins Monday, February 1 and all applications must be completed by Tuesday, March 1. Students historically underrepresented in graduate education and students from academic institutions where research programs are limited are especially encouraged to apply.
