Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year

Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
The Department of Chemistry at Princeton University is pleased to be able to offer the Summer Undergraduate Research Program for Diversity in Chemistry (SURP-DC) again this summer. This selective program provides unique laboratory experiences for qualified undergraduates, placing each student into research groups directed by our well-respected Faculty. For nine weeks the undergraduate summer researcher becomes part of the group, working side-by-side with post-docs, graduate students, and other undergraduates. Each student has the opportunity to play a part in cutting-edge research and be a contributing member of the research team.

In addition to the valuable laboratory experience, each summer student may participate in the following:

Research Discussion Groups (Learning to analyze and present scientific information) Safety Training (Laboratory Safety for each lab) Social Activities with SURP students from other programs.

Industrial Chemistry Laboratory Tour (The opportunity to see what an industrial chemist does) Poster Session (Presentation of the Summer Research to a wide audience) In addition to receiving a stipend, students are provided with housing in Princeton dormitories and are reimbursed for traveling expenses within budgetary limits. We encourage applications from research-oriented undergraduates (1) whose participation will add to the diversity of researchers in the sciences, or (2) who are from institutions that do not have large research programs, and (3) whose interests fall within all fields of chemistry and chemical materials. Applicants must be current undergraduates (freshman, sophomores, or juniors) and either US citizens, permanent residents, or foreign undergraduates attending a US educational institution.
