Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in CHEMICAL BIOLOGY @ NYU

01/30/ 2017

The REU program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded initiative that supports active research participation by undergraduate students. The REU Site in Chemical Biology at NYU offers an intensive interdisciplinary research program at the interface of chemistry and biology to the participating students. The 10-week summer program hosts roughly ten undergraduate students per year. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and levels of research experience, and we encourage applications from students from underrepresented groups in science.

- Stipend of $5,000. Reimbursement for travel to and from the REU site (up to $600)

-   On-campus housing arranged by the program

-   Deadline: February 28th, 2017.
