Georgia Tech Summer Theory Program
Georgia Tech will host its annual Summer Theory Program as
part of its National Science Foundation Research Experiences for
Undergraduates program in chemistry and biochemistry. During
the ten week REU program, students will
conduct research in the groups of Georgia Tech Chemistry faculty.
The program is open to students who will be in their junior or
senior years during the next academic year. Successful applicants
will receive a stipend, a travel allowance, and on-campus dormitory
housing. More information on the
Georgia Tech REU program may be found
REU students who are interested in theoretical chemistry will take
part in the Summer Theory Program, which supplements the research
experience with a a series of introductory lectures in theoretical
chemistry at the undergraduate level. Summer research projects in the
areas of dynamics and electronic structure theory are available
in the groups of Professors
and Ken Brown.
Students will have access to clusters with over 1000 compute cores
hosted by the Center for Computational
Molecular Science and Technology.
The primary goal of the Georgia Tech REU Program is for undergraduates
to gain experience with chemical research by becoming active members
of research groups for the summer. Each student will be assigned an
independent research project to be carried out with the assistance
of his or her faculty advisor and their research group. Additionally,
interactions between the theoretical research groups will
be encouraged and will provide
a much broader educational experience. It is intended that each summer
project will be published in one of the standard journals
for theoretical chemistry.
Lecture Series in Theoretical Chemistry
Throughout the summer, introductory lectures on theoretical chemistry
will be presented at the advanced undergraduate level to give students
background information for their projects and to allow them to better
understand how their research fits into the larger picture of theoretical
chemistry. In the past, we have covered topics such as
Applicants should be entering their junior or senior years of college next
academic year. The deadline is usually in early-mid February. See the Georgia
REU page for more details. Please signify your interest in
the Summer Theory Program on your application.
