The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at the University at Albany-SUNY is accepting applications for the 2009 Summer Internship Program through February 27, 2009. The program provides opportunities for hands-on research experience to qualified undergraduate students who wish to pursue careers in nanosciences, nanoengineering, and the nanotechnology industry. Applicants should have academic backgrounds in the physical, chemical, biological or computer sciences, mathematics, engineering, or economics. Prior research experience is not required for consideration.
The duration of the internship program is 10 weeks beginning on Monday, June 1 through Friday, August 7, 2009. The program provides exposure to industrial experts through weekly seminars and public presentation of research results. Each intern will be involved with one or more CNSE/industrial partnered research program. CNSE summer interns will work closely with CNSE faculty, staff, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students during the course of their work.
The award of CNSE Summer Internships is competitively based and stipends range from $286-$358/week depending on academic achievement and experience. Expenses related to travel, lodging, and meals are the responsibility of each intern. Limited on-campus housing may be available at standard UAlbany summer rates. Members of traditionally underrepresented groups in science are strongly encouraged to apply.
Complete applications should be submitted on-line, or via postal service using the printed version of the application (with all required attachments, except the letter of recommendation) no later than February 27, 2009. The letter of recommendation should be submitted via the postal service separately. Review of applications will begin immediately and awardees will be notified by the end of the first week in April, 2009. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
