3/20/17: Milwaukee School of Engineering Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

Students who want to conduct original, inventive research while gaining hands-on experience, grow during MSOE’s unique Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. They arrive from all parts of the country with diverse university experiences, skill levels, interests and science and engineering backgrounds. Funded by the National Science Foundation, MSOE’s Rapid Prototyping Consortium and the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power, our REU program focuses on understanding and utilizing additive manufacturing and fluid power technology that cuts across many disciplines while developing skills in research methodology and communication. 

NEW to this grant: An international component for two of the seven students each year – typically, MSOE students who already have exposure to the on-campus AM facilities ─ to spend the middle six weeks of the 10-week program at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in South Africa, where they will conduct research in advanced manufacturing at the National Laser Center (NLC), closely advised by Dr. Esther Akinlabi of the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.

3/20/17: BME-SIM Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at East Carolina University

The Departments of Engineering, Kinesiology and Physical Therapy at East Carolina University will conduct a 10 week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for 10 undergraduate students. The goal of the BME-SIM REU is to provide a quality research experience to undergraduate students in order to increase awareness of and application to graduate school. At the end of the program students will have a better understanding of how to conduct research, an increased awareness of graduate school, clarification and reinforcement of a STEM career path, and greater identification as an engineer/scientist. Through the REU program students will be exposed to cutting edge research utilizing advanced computational models with applications in biomedical engineering.

3/20/17: The Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program

This REU program provides research experiences across four CEINT partner institutions: Duke, Virginia Tech and Carnegie Mellon Universities as well as the European Center for Research and Education in Geosciences and the Environment (CEREGE) in Aix-en-Provence, France. This 10 week summer REU program offers participating students opportunities to engage in their own original research projects with a focus on the environmental impacts of nanotechnology. This program is uniquely designed to guide undergraduate students toward independent interdisciplinary research in academic fields related to nano-science and engineering. These include biomedical engineering, materials science, biology, chemistry, ecotoxicology, geosciences, and civil & environmental engineering.

2/21/17: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Molecular Imaging Summer Program (MISP) 2017

The Center for Molecular Imaging & Nanotechnology and the MSK Department of Radiology are now offering 8-week internships in the field of MI for undergraduate students interested in cancer imaging and related biomedical sciences. MISP is designed to offer students hands-on research experience in cutting-edge laboratories and to interact with research and clinical faculty and trainees. Students will have a chance to take part in independent research projects under the direct mentorship and guidance of a CMINT or Radiology principal investigator (PI). A MISP internship will be tailored to the individual intern and could situated at the intersection of various disciplines — cancer biology, medicine, chemistry, physics, radiochemistry, pharmacology and engineering. Once matched to a PI the intern will be mentored by a senior member from the PIs lab, such as a resident, fellow, postdoctoral fellow, graduate student, or research technician. At the end of the summer, the students will be expected to present their research project.

 Current Opportunities for Graduate Students:

3/20/17: Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomedical Modeling, Center for Modeling Complex Interactions (CMCI), University of Idaho

The NIH-funded Center for Modeling Complex Interactions (CMCI) at the University of Idaho is an intellectual, cultural, and physical environment to foster synergy in interdisciplinary biomedical research. The focal point of CMCI is the Collaboratorium, a space and a culture for collaborative modeling. It brings together faculty and students from both the empirical and modeling realms with postdoctoral scientists who reside in the Collaboratorium and devote full-time effort to collaborative modeling. We currently have openings in the Collaboratorium for two postdoctoral fellows interested in biomedical modeling.

CMCI fellows are knowledgeable modelers who are creative, collaborative, and strong communicators. They engage in interdisciplinary research, working with both experimentalists and other modelers, and take leadership roles on research direction, manuscript preparation, offering workshops to the UI research community, and presenting research at national and international scientific meetings. Our current openings are for modelers who have expertise in mathematical and statistical methodology and are skilled computer programmers. Expertise in more than one modeling approach and more than one programming language is desired. The specialty is open, but we are particularly interested in systems biology, statistical, and agent-based modeling. The specialties of current CMCI fellows include bioinformatics, protein modeling, and ecological modeling.

3/20/17: Associate Editor (Biomedical/Translational Research), Nature Communications, London, United Kingdom

Nature Communications (part of Macmillan Publishers, branded as Springer Nature) is the world’s leading multidisciplinary Open Access journal, publishing high-quality research from across the natural sciences. To help us to build on the success of this journal, we’re seeking a biomedical scientist with expertise in translational research who has a critical eye, a deep understanding of their subject and interests beyond, and who can think on their feet.
