We invite applications for an 8-week undergraduate research experience from June 2 to July 27, 2024, funded by the National Science Foundation (award DMS-2349040) at the School of Mathematical and Data Sciences of West Virginia University (WVU) in Morgantown. 

Participants will work in groups with faculty advisors on the following topics in applied analysis:

  • Systems of Conservation and Balance Laws with Singular Solutions (Faculty Mentor: Charis Tsikkou)
  • Asymptotics for a Basic Cosmological Model (Faculty Mentor: Adrian Tudorascu)

More information about the projects and mentors is posted here. In addition, they will attend workshops and get involved in educational activities organized by the WVU Office of Undergraduate Research. 

Participants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program. Applications from rising sophomores to seniors will be accepted. Participants must be enrolled in a mathematics or related undergraduate degree program with sufficient background in mathematics (for example, a course in ordinary differential equations is recommended). We especially encourage applications from students attending colleges and universities in the Appalachian region and in general from institutions with limited opportunities for STEM research experiences, as well as underrepresented groups such as minority students, women, students with disabilities, veterans, students in rural areas, first-generation college students, students of low socioeconomic status.

Each participant will receive a stipend of $5,600, on-campus housing and meal service, and partial travel support to and from Morgantown, WV. The program is restricted to U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a transcript, a personal statement of interest that includes a ranking of the topic, from highest to lowest, on which you would like to work, and two letters of recommendation. The application deadline is May 15; however, we encourage you to apply by April 15 for full consideration (applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis).
