CURE REU SUMMER 2014

Collaborative Undergraduate Research in Energy ProgramNSF logo

A Summer REU Program in the Science Behind Renewable Energy at UMass Amherst

The University of Massachusetts Amherst's Collaborative Undergraduate Research in Energy (CURE) Program offers American undergraduate students a ten-week research internship in the science behind renewable energy, in a true collaborative team environment.

Supported by the National Science Foundation, CURE each year welcomes a diverse group of high-performing students with backgrounds in chemistry, physics, materials science, or chemical engineering. Ten internships are available for the 2014 program, which will run from May 27 through August 1. In addition to a stipend of $5,000, we provide convenient and comfortable dormitory housing and reimbursement for travel costs.

The application deadline for 2014 is February 15th.

Each of CURE's fundamental science research projects strives to light the way toward breakthrough technologies for tomorrow's clean energy solutions:

Fuel Cells and Batteries — design and synthesis of membranes and polymers for enhanced ion transport; theoretical modeling; fabrication of fuel cells and batteries
Photovoltaic Devices — design and synthesis of molecular structures with enhanced exciton lifetimes, charge transport, and mobility; directed molecular assembly, fabrication, and analysis of devices
Cellulosic Biofuels — chemical and biological conversion of recalcitrant biomass to liquid transportation fuels.
