Description:
STROBE is an NSF Science and Technology Center coordinating six institutions across the US to build the microscopes of tomorrow. Our research includes visible, x-ray, nano-probe, and electron microscopy, and has applications across materials science, basic physics and chemistry, and biological systems. We have research opportunities at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of California at Los Angeles, the University of California at Berkeley, Fort Lewis College, Florida International University, and the University of California at Irvine (see below for specific research descriptions at each site).

All programs include a $5,000–6,000 stipend and additional funding may be available for housing/travel for those who need it.

Program dates vary but are typically 8–10 weeks. The program includes research in a mentored lab experience, supporting group and social activities, community networking, and academic, science, and career development opportunities.

You can find information and tips for preparing your application on our FAQs and Resources page on our website.
