View Full Version : Research for Undergrads in Biomechanics and Imaging - U ofRochester

01-09-2003, 01:50 PM
We are now accepting applications for our summer research program at the
University of Rochester. It is called the RUBI program - Research for
Undergraduates in Biomechanics and Imaging. The goal of the program is to
provide research experiences for between 10 and 15 undergraduate students
during the summer. Students will complete an independent research project
and participate in research as members of a research laboratory. A weekly
series of seminars and lab tours will also provide some background on
biomechanics and imaging, and careers in biomedical engineering research.
The program will run between May 28th and August 6th.

This is our third year of funding from the National Science
Foundation REU program.

For complete details, see:

Example research areas:
Cell mechanics
Biomedical Ultrasound
Orthopaedic Biomechanics
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
3D / 4D Medical Image Processing
Musculoskeletal Kinematics
Radiation Oncology
Biofluid Mechanics

Students must have completed their sophomore or junior year in
engineering or another technical discipline, with a G.P.A of 3.0 or
greater. We can not accept applications from students just completing
their freshman
year, or from students who will have received their BS before the
program begins.
Preference will be given to students considering an advanced
degree and career in research. Members of under-represented minorities or
students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants
must also be
US citizens or Permanent Residents.

A stipend of $3600 will be provided for each student. Students
living away from home may also qualify for housing and travel
allowances. On
campus housing is available.

Application information and other program features may be found on
our web page http://www.bme.rochester.edu/RUBI and applications are
due March 1st (Online application and all materials submitted to
Dottie Welch in Biomedical Engineering). We expect to notify
students by April 1st of their acceptance in the program.

Questions about the program may be directed to Professors Amy Lerner or
Diane Dalecki, or to Dottie Welch. (see web pages for additional
e-mail addresses)
