Research Experience for Undergraduates in Catalysis, Energy, Materials, and Biotechnology
The UC Davis ChemEnergy REU aims to provide diverse undergraduate students with a unique 10-week research experience tackling state-of-the-art research problems in energy, materials, catalysis, and biotechnology. REU students will live on campus and work alongside faculty and graduate students to gain a unique perspective on modern chemistry research. Students will also network with faculty and students in weekly social activities, participate in field trips to local companies and a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe, and receive training to improve science communication skills. This program is supported by the National Science Foundation. Professor Jesús Velázquez is the Director and PI of the REU program, and Professor Annaliese Franz is the co-PI. This program is supported by the National Science Foundation.
Students who are chemistry (or related) majors in their sophomore or junior year. Must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident. UC Davis undergraduates are not eligible for this program. Students are selected based on their undergraduate record, letters of recommendation, and research interests.
Up to $5,000; housing provided; travel costs included.
