White Sands National Monument - natural wonder in New Mexico, Southwest United States

The Santa Fe Institute is accepting applications for its Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) summer internship program. Apply by January 13, 2020.

The ability to mathematically model complex systems has become a prerequisite to successful science in any field. Writing a simulation is not enough; career scientists today should be able to analyze results, recognize statistical regularities, formulate conjectures, and pursue possible proofs about why these conjectures are true. This hands-on summer program gives participants a toolbox for understanding and using mathematical modeling in complex systems and their disciplines.

An REU's main work is a small-group research project working with SFI mentors. Prior to SFI residency they are encouraged to complete SFI’s MOOC “Introduction to Complexity.” They will also attend part of SFI’s flagship Complex Systems Summer School and attend tutorials on the basics of data analysis, including concepts from computation, linear algebra, and statistics throughout the summer.

• Application deadline is January 13, 2020.
• Participants will be in residence in Santa Fe from June 7 to August 15, 2020.
• Room and board will be fully funded and students will be provided with a modest living and travel stipend.
