DIMACS Research Experience for Undergraduates Program

Deadline for Applications: April 17, 1995

DIMACS invites applications for a NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. DIMACS is one of 25 Science and Technology Centers funded by the NSF. It is located at Rutgers University, and is a joint project of Rutgers Princeton, AT\&T Bell Laboratories, and Bellcore. DIMACS has over 120 permanent members in mathematics, computer science, and operations research, and hosts many distinguished visitors each year.

The program begins with eight weeks of intensive work during the summer of 1995 and continues through the academic year 1995-96. Up to five undergraduates will be selected to participate. Each will have a DIMACS faculty member as a supervisor. Research topics this year will include computational biology, combinatorial optimization, combinatorics, computational geometry/graphics, and computational group theory. The timing of the eight-week summer work period is to be arranged by the student and supervisor, during June - August, 1995. Pending NSF approval of funding, the program will provide each student with a stipend which includes summer living expenses and travel.

Applicants should be undergraduates with a major in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a closely related field. They should be current juniors (graduating in 1996), although sophomores with exceptionally strong backgrounds will be considered. Preference will be given to students who will continue their research projects during the academic year, under the direction of either their supervisor or a faculty member from their home institution. Women, minorities, and disabled students are encouraged to apply.
