Call for Summer 2014 Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Institute (MURI)

MURI facilitates the creation and support of multidisciplinary research teams consisting of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, senior staff, and faculty. The primary purpose of these teams is to provide undergraduates a unique opportunity to work with mentors on real-world problems to gain research skills that can be applied to their college coursework and future careers.

MURI teams are funded to work during the academic year or the summer. During the academic year, students must commit to 120 hours of work with their research team. The summer MURI is a nine-week, full-time program with students expected to devote 75% of their time to conducting research under the supervision of their mentor and 25% of their time to professional-development, social, and cultural activities.

MURI is funded through a partnership between the Center for Research and Learning and the School of Engineering and Technology. Applications will close March 1, 2014. Please click here to: Apply today.
