Summer research experience at Texas Tech for 2017

We are excited to announce a new research training program for undergraduates, funded by the National Science Foundation, REU Site: Translational Research in Psychological Sciences: Human Factors at Texas Tech University. The program starts on June 5, 2017, and lasts for 8 weeks.

We especially want to recruit females, underrepresented minorities, first-generation college students, and students who have not had an opportunity to conduct research. Candidates must have junior or senior standing when the REU Site starts, be in good academic standing, and have a GPA of at least 3.3.texastechnsf_paid_summer_research_program_flyer

The REU program targets undergraduates with interests or majors in psychological and social sciences, neuroscience, behavioral health science, engineering, computer science, math, kinesiology, and biomechanics. All students who are interested in research and who plan to go to graduate school are encouraged to apply.

Undergraduates will work closely with a faculty member at Texas Tech University on behavioral research that has clear applications to real-world problems. Examples of topics include driving, human-robot interaction; surgery; enhancement of student learning; applications of neuroscience to baggage screening; substance use and misuse; health-based disparities; and reduction of injury during handling of patients. Training includes professional development seminars, graduate school preparation, and a special presentation by a successful alumnus now working in industry. The grant will pay for student lodging, meals and travel, and a $4000 stipend.
