Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
This eight-week summer internship program matches undergraduate students with scientists at the Magnet Lab’s three sites, offering them unique opportunities to explore science at the extremes of magnetic fields, pressure and temperature while working alongside some of the finest scientists, magnet designers and engineers in the world.
The MagLab offers a wide range of research experiences in physics, chemistry, biological sciences, geochemistry, materials science and magnet science and engineering. Summer interns work closely with their faculty mentors and are thoroughly integrated into research and development activities. Beyond the lab, students broaden their knowledge of diverse Magnet Lab research by attending weekly seminars and colloquia.
Each student accepted by the program receives a stipend and, if necessary, a travel stipend of up to $600. Housing is also covered by the program.
The application period for the summer of 2013 is now closed. Applications for the summer of 2014 will be accepted starting October 2013. Please check this page again then for details.
Arranged by year, these archives include information on participants and their final posters on the research they conducted.
This experience has been more rewarding than I could have ever hoped!

Heres what some REU alumni had to say about the program:
“… this experience has been more rewarding than I could have ever hoped! I have had the opportunity to learn so much and to do so much. … I will be going back to Claflin University with so much knowledge and insight not only on NMR, but on myself as well! The MagLab is a wonderful program and I feel privileged and honored that I was able to be a participant this summer!”

“I think one of the most important things I’m going to be taking back is more of a real sense of what the lab environment is like. Back at school, the labs are really linear. It’s do this, do that, and record your results. It’s so structured that it’s a lot harder to do your own problem solving.”
