This REU, organized by the University of Minnesota, is being held off-site at Leiden University in The Netherlands. We seek two motivated undergraduate students to spend 6 weeks in residence between June 15, 2020 and July 24, 2020, for a summer program at the Mathematical Institute at Leiden University. Research topics will be related to nonlinear waves and pattern formation, using the theory of dynamical systems and partial differential equations. Applications include vegetation pattern formation and other topics in mathematical biology and ecology.

To participate, students must be US citizens or permanent residents, and must have not yet completed their undergraduate degree by summer 2020. Selected students will receive a stipend of $3,600 plus up to $2,400 towards round trip airfare as well as accommodation. Applicants should submit a personal statement, CV, transcript (unofficial OK), and at least one reference letter (two maximum). We encourage applications from women and underrepresented minorities.

For questions, please contact Paul Carter (
