Applied Math Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (AM-SURE)
Unfortunately, the AM-SURE 2020 program had to be cancelled because NYU was closed due to the Covid-19 epidemic. We hope to resume with a bigger program in 2021.
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.
Here is a list of projects and research reports for past AM-SURE research programs.
When: May 26-July 31 2020 (10 weeks.)
Who: Upper-level undergraduates (primarily juniors, though seniors or 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, provided they are US citizens or permanent residents. Non-US citizens from NYU and its associated campuses may apply too.
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: Fill out an application for the Summer 2020 program by March 2. If you are accepted you will hear back by the end of March.
