2020 UNT Chemistry NSF-REU Program
This program offers interdisciplinary research experiences at the forefront of the chemical sciences. Although our faculty research groups are grounded in “traditional” areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical), most of their research projects cross boundaries between these areas. A unique aspect of our REU program is that all projects will involve collaboration between two or more research groups, including both experimental and computational researchers, drawing on University of North Texas’ world-class resources in both instrumentation and high-performance computing.
In addition to a meaningful research experience, this program includes a career program involving career-active researchers at major international chemical companies, tours of local companies to see how chemistry plays a role, “hands-on” learning experiences and training in scientific communication (written and verbal), “Research Boot Camps” providing intensive training in computational and experimental research methods, and a scientific ethics component.
The application deadline is Friday, March 6, 2020 (Early application is encouraged).
