Applied Math Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (AM-SURE)
What: A summer research program for for undergraduate students interested in applied mathematics, both modeling and simulation. The main goal is for each student to complete a research project under the joint guidance of graduate students, postdocs, and faculty in the mathematics department at NYU. Some projects will involve theoretical modeling and computer simulation, and others may involve Courant's Applied Math Lab, where students will help conduct experiments to validate models and simulations. The program will include a set of coherent activities such as frequent group academic meetings and social gatherings. Students will be given office space and computational resources to complete their projects.
When: May 29-Aug 3 2018 (10 weeks.)
Who: Upper-level undergraduates (junior or senior, though strong sophomores may apply too.) Students should have have excellent mathematical ability, strong computational skills, an interest in physical modeling, and a creative and independent approach to problem-solving. All undergraduate students from any major, year, or university are welcome to apply. Priority will be given to US citizens or permanent residents.
Expectations: Students must commit to be full-time research and to be present for the entire duration of the program. They will receive competitive salary equivalent to full-time employment.
How to apply: Please apply using the online application form. All applications received by March 1, 2018 will receive equal consideration.
