The program begins with eight weeks of intensive work during the summer of 2000; students are strongly encouraged to continue their projects during the academic year 2000-2001. We expect that five to eight undergraduates will be selected to participate. Each will have a DIMACS faculty member as a supervisor. Research topics this year may include modeling the 3D-structure of DNA, decision-making under uncertainty, combinatorics (Ramsey theory), and computational group theory. More topics will be posted on the proposed projects page as mentors become available. A stipend of approximately $2650 will be provided as well as travel and housing.
We have received NSF funding to set up an exchange program between DIMACS and our sister site DIMATIA at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. Click here for more information.
Applicants should be undergraduates with a major in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a closely related field. They should be current juniors (graduating in 2001), 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. Under NSF rules, only U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents are eligible to receive stipends. Women, minorities, and disabled students are encouraged to apply.
