REU: Emergent Quantum Materials and Technology (EQUATE)
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Location: Lincoln, Nebraska
Engineering and Technology: Materials
As part of the Nebraska Summer Research Program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Emergent Quantum Materials and Technologies (EQUATE) is a $20 million NSF-funded project placing Nebraska researchers in the second quantum revolution. This project focuses on research and workforce development to advance knowledge on topics related to quantum materials, technologies, and computation. These new technologies will revolutionize fields such as information technology, medicine, meteorology, and cryptography, with an impact on security areas such as defense and banking.
EQUATE consolidates the quantum science and technology expertise of 20 faculty researchers across the four Nebraska research institutions, establishing collaboration and feedback between theory and experiment to guide discoveries and expedite the findings of new emergent quantum materials and phenomena.
In order to be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Those students selected for the program will receive a stipend of $6,000. Accepted scholars will also be provided housing, meals, travel, and access to campus services.
The Nebraska Summer Research Program is a consortium of NSF funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), NIFA USDA funded Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU), and other summer research opportunities programs (SROP).
One unique feature of the Nebraska Summer Research Program is the partnership between the REU, REEU, and SROP programs and the Office of Graduate Studies. Students benefit in having a community of scholars in which to learn and to share research with. This intensive summer research experience provides mentoring and research experiences while allowing scholars to preview graduate school life. Students with a strong interest in graduate programs are encouraged to apply, as are those from populations traditionally underrepresented in graduate education.
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln was chartered as a land-grant university on February 15, 1869, to create opportunity for the state of Nebraska. A proud member of the Big Ten Conference, the Big Ten Academic Alliance, and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), Nebraska is classified within the Carnegie “R1: Doctoral Universities – Highest Research Activity” category. The university is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
UNL's Office of Graduate Studies sponsors the Nebraska Summer Research Program. The Nebraska Summer Research Program is a consortium of NSF funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), NIFA USDA funded Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU), and other summer research opportunities programs (SROP).
