Summer 2020 Research Experience For Undergraduates
School of Mathematics University of Minnesota
Mentor: Arnd Scheel

Application Deadline: Friday, February 7, 2020

The University of Minnesota Complex Systems REU is a six week program from June 11, 2020 to July 22, 2020, designed to engage students in research problems in dynamical systems and pattern formation, motivated by applications to the physical sciences. We are seeking four students to work on two distinct projects in close collaboration with faculty mentor Arnd Scheel as well as graduate student mentors Montie Avery, Olivia Cannon, and Sally Jankovic. Students will share an office in the School of Mathematics and have daily access to both faculty and graduate student mentors.

Potentially relevant fields of mathematics include dynamical systems, bifurcation theory, partial differential equations, numerical computation, and harmonic analysis. The focus of the projects will be shaped by student interest, and prior background in these fields is not required. Some coursework in differential equations will be helpful. No prior research experience is required. Applicants should submit a cover letter that details their interest in this specific REU, a CV, a transcript (unofficial OK), and at least one reference letter.

Participants will receive a stipend of $3,000 as well as up to $2,000 for travel and living expenses. Students will need to be US citizens or permanent residents in order to receive funding. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
