Applications due by February 23, 2018 Summer Research Experience for Undergraduate Students at Carnegie Mellon University

PIER-REU: Summer Research Experience for Undergraduate Students at Carnegie Mellon University

Applications are due via email by February 23, 2018.

The Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research (PIER) at Carnegie Mellon University offers an exciting summer research opportunity available to undergraduate students. This program is designed to provide research opportunities to undergraduates who may be considering pursuing graduate training in the learning sciences. We encourage applications from students who would like to conduct research at the interface of the learning sciences and one or more of the following disciplines: psychology, education, computer science, and human-computer interaction. We also encourage students who are from underrepresented groups to apply, including racial/ethnic minorities, first-generation college students, economically disadvantaged students, veterans, and students with disabilities.

PIER’s REU program allows talented undergraduates to spend 8 weeks during the summer in a research laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University. This program supports our commitment to training a diverse set of leaders in the field of learning science and related disciplines.

Applications are encouraged from students who wish to learn to conduct research in a modern academic research laboratory under the guidance of experienced scientists. The REU program will expose students to the excitement and opportunities of a research career. This experience will provide excellent preparation for students interested in subsequently pursuing Masters or Ph.D. degrees in psychology, education, learning science, human-computer interaction, and related areas of scientific inquiry. Although students from other years may apply, this opportunity is most fitting for a student at the end of the junior year of undergraduate studies.

Each student will receive a fellowship stipend of $3,000 for the eight-week REU program.  Apartment-style housing will also be provided. Guidance and supervision will be provided by faculty members as well as, in some cases, a postdoctoral fellow and/or advanced graduate student.

Additionally, admitted students will participate in the Go Research! Summer Program at CMU. This program brings together undergraduate researchers from across departments.  Students live in dorms with resident assistants to facilitate community building, manage housing, and provide programming.   A Summer Seminar Series is provided for all students to help prepare for graduate education and research careers.



2018...,,Next Generation Global Health Security Professional

Dear Health Security Professional:
Are you looking for ways to help the next generation of global health security professionals?
Consider becoming a mentor through the Next Generation Global Health Security (NGGHS) Mentorship Program. The NGGHS Mentorship Program promotes and supports early to mid-career professionals and students with an interest in health security.  NGGHS mentors cultivate professional relationships with protégés who are developing skills to continue promoting a world safe and secure from health security threats.

Protégés are members of the Next Generation Global Health Security Network who have expressed an interest in establishing a mentoring relationship with experienced health security professionals.  Mentor involvement can vary: some mentors may serve in an advisory role, while others may choose to pursue a collaboration with their protégé(s). At heart, the most important thing is the ability and willingness to help.
Responsibilities of Mentors

·         Agreeing to attend the NGGHS Mentorship Program Discussion Forum
