We invite applications for an 8-week undergraduate research experience in the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University during June 3 - July 26, 2024. This REU is part of the NSF-sponsored Research Training Group "Mathematics of Information, Data, and Applications to Science (MIDAS)" ( Participants will work in teams with the faculty mentor Bjorn Sandstede ( and RTG postdocs on applied or theoretical projects in data science. Sample areas include applications in social justice, analysis of biological single cell and fluorescence data, Koopman theory, opinion dynamics, optimal transport, parameter identification, tipping points, and topological data analysis of spatio-temporal patterns. We particularly encourage women, members of groups underrepresented in the mathematical sciences, first-generation college students, and students from institutions with limited opportunities for STEM research experiences to apply.

Each participant will receive a stipend of $5,000 and will be reimbursed for accommodation, allowable living, and travel expenses of up to $3,000. Applicants should apply through mathprograms and upload a current transcript and a one-page personal statement describing their interest in this program. They should also arrange to have a letter of reference uploaded. The program is restricted to US citizens or permanent residents. Applications should be received by February 16, 2024 to receive full consideration.
