James Madison University


The Research Experience in Materials Science at JMU is not currently funded, but there will still be ongoing summer research opportunities for the summer of 2013. If you are interested, please contact the factuly advisors directly. Detalis about our research projects.

Our program targets students in the early parts of their academic careers who have not yet been exposed to scientific research. This includes rising sophomore and juniors from institutions without a significant research program, though others are welcome to apply as well. Successful applicants will work closely with other students and a JMU faculty member for 10 weeks during the summer, be provided on campus housing if needed, and be paid a $4200 stipend. They will be expected to present their research at the final symposium of the program in the final week and possibly present their research work at regional and national scientific meetings.

For answers to any questions you may have, please contact Chris Hughes, the director of the program.
