NSF/MCEER Seek Applicants for Summer Research Projects
MCEER is recruiting applicants for NSF's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. The program, in its third year at MCEER, involves undergraduate students in Center research activities through summer internships. Fellow earthquake Centers MAE (Mid-America Earthquake Center) and PEER (Pacific Earthquake Engineering Center) also participate in the program.
Pending confirmation of funding, eight applicants will be selected at each Center and will receive a $5,000 stipend. Additional details and requirements can be found on our web site at http://mceer.buffalo.edu/education/reu/default.asp or by contacting Andrea Dargush at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is March 18, 2002.
In previous years, MCEER's REU students have been involved in a variety of different projects, including seismic design and testing, public sector approaches to mitigation, risk and reliability in seismic design, seismic hazard characterization of the New York City area, application of remote sensing technologies for earthquake recovery, and performance of soils under earthquake-induced deformation.
