REU Sites

REU Sites: Materials Research

The NSF Division of Materials Research (DMR) supports REU Sites that focus on research in materials science and related areas, including condensed matter physics, materials chemistry and physics, and materials engineering. Most DMR-supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSEC) and National Facilities offer REU opportunities each summer as well. REU sites supported by DMR involve research in various aspects of condensed matter physics; solid state chemistry and polymers; materials and condensed matter theory; metals, ceramics, biomaterials, and electronic and photonic materials. See this Google map of DMR-funded REU Sites.
