Villanova's Department of Chemistry's Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities
Each year, the Department of Chemistry offers undergraduate students opportunities to work on an independent research project with a faculty mentor. These are paid positions that are supported through faculty research grants or through other funds available through the Department. I encourage you to meet with Chemistry faculty to discuss research possibilities in their laboratories, both in the summer and during the school year. If you are curious about the research being done in the Department, several faculty will be describing their research at PDS on Tuesday, March 13, in Mendel 101. I also suggest speaking with your classmates and with our graduate students about the research they are doing. Applications for summer undergraduate research should be completed with a faculty mentor and returned to the Chemistry office by Friday, March 23, 2012; all faculty have an electronic copy of the form. Awards will be announced during the first week of April and the number of awards will depend on funding available. A limited number of room and board awards will be available as well.
