  • Research for Undergrads in Biomechanics and Imaging - U ofRochester

    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 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)
