Research Experience for Undergraduates Opportunity for Materials Growth and Engineering

Application Deadline: February 23rd, 2017
Expected Dates: May 31st - August 4th, 2017

A Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) position is available at the Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials (PARADIM) bulk crystal growth facility located on the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Homewood campus in Baltimore, Maryland. The REU student will work in collaboration with Professor Tyrel M. McQueen and Dr. W. Adam Phelan in either (a) modeling fluid dynamic processes relevant to crystal growth and design or (b) designing and implementing computer digitation and recording of crystal growth parameters during growth on new instrumentation (student will be able to select which project they prefer). The results of these studies will be implemented in various crystal growth instrument designs at PARADIM. Further, the selected student will be integrated in the Institute for Nanotechnology for Biology and Engineering REU program at JHU where he or she will participate in additional scientific enhancement opportunities including a professional development lecture series and the annual presentation CARES Symposium.

To Apply: Provide a personal statement, unofficial or official transcript, and resume in a single email communication to Also arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to that address.
