Research Opportunities for Undergraduates At The University of Missouri - Columbia
The NSEI faculty are heavily involved in Undergraduate Research and supervise undergraduate Honors Research Projects. Undergraduate research internships are available for undergraduates in engineering and physical science fields interested in applications of nuclear science and engineering to:
- Nuclear Engineering and Industrial Materials
- Wide Band-Gap materials
- Very High Temperature Reactors
- Radioenvironmental Chemistry
- Health Physics
- Basic Neutron Scattering Sciences
- Radiopharmaceutical Science
- Archeological Neutron Activation Analysis
- and more...
The NSEI faculty are involved with the Missouri Space Grant Consortium (MOSGC) advising undergraduate student’s research.
Undergraduate Research Internships: The MOSGC supports competitively awarded summer and academic year Undergraduate Research Internships. These awards are similar to the Graduate Fellowships in that they are distributed among Consortium Members with the intent to provide undergraduate training through independent student research and contribute to the national workforce in the aerospace industry and in space science related fields. Undergraduate students of demonstrated high academic achievement are selected to participate in the Space Grant internship programs.
Applications for Graduate Fellowships and Undergraduate Research Internships are solicited each Spring by the NASA-Missouri Space Grant Consortium Affiliates. Please contact the Consortium’s campus representative at the Affiliate institution of interest for more information regarding the specific application process at their location.
