COMAP’s Mathematical Contest in Modeling (MCM) and Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling (ICM) kicks off in just over a month. These are international contests open to undergraduate students of all disciplines.
The MCM/ICM contest problems are designed to provide students with the opportunity to work as team members to engage in and improve their modeling, problem-solving, and writing skills. Teams from your school apply mathematics to model and develop a solution to a real-world problem.

Interested students should contact Professor Mike Jolly.
The Northwestern Center for Synthetic Biology is now accepting applications for the 2023 Synthetic Biology Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SynBREU). Please help us spread the word to all interested undergraduates in your network, and particularly to all students from minority and underprivileged backgrounds and at schools with limited research opportunities. Applications and one letter of recommendation are due by Jan. 31, 2023. For full information and a link to the application, please visit our website, synbreu.northwestern.edu.
We are seeking curious and highly motivated students with strong science backgrounds to participate in the prestigious Department of Energy and American Chemical Society sponsored Nuclear and Radiochemistry Summer Schools (NCSS).The students receive an all-expense paid opportunity to complete a 6-week summer course (June 12, 2023 – July 21, 2023) in Nuclear Chemistry and Radiochemistry in either California at San Jose State University or New York at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Students also earn hours (tuition paid) of undergraduate chemistry credit through either San Jose State University or Stony Brook University (The State University of New York). Selected students also receive a stipend of $4,000 for the 6-week program.
The students will learn the fundamentals of nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry and their applications. A hands-on laboratory component gives the students experience in handling radioactive materials and radiation detectors. The students will meet scientists from academia, national laboratories, and industry from across the U.S. who will discuss the exciting opportunities in nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry.
The on-line application form can be found on the web at:
Important: this year, transcripts and letters of recommendation should be uploaded to the secure links accessed through the application website.
The deadline for applications is February 15, 2023.
Funding for this program is provided by the Department of Energy.

On behalf of the IU National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) we welcome you to attend our Spring 2023 call-out meeting! Held on Monday, January 30th, 2023, at 6 PM, in Chem A500. This will be a safe space to meet our current members, network, share ideas, and find out ways to get involved in the Science community this semester. There will be food provided, good vibes, and an opportunity to connect with other scientists and allies.
Check out some of the past events we’ve participated in:
The College of Arts + Sciences Winter Career & Internship Fair will be held virtually on Thursday, January 26, from 3-7pm. See the Walter Center for Career Achievement for more information.
We are looking for motivated seniors in chemistry, physics, materials science, chemical engineering, and other related fields, for our recently launched Masters program in Electrochemical Technology. In Fall 2023 we will be welcoming our fourth cohort. We have found many new graduates are looking for ways to be involved in the clean-energy transition. Our program has been highly effective at placing students into related industries. Our 2022 cohort have accepted job offers from Boeing, Cuberg, ESS, HRL, NEL Hydrogen, NREL, Nuvera Fuel Cells, Sila Nanotechnologies, Twelve, and QuantumScape, EnZinc, among others, with average compensation >$82,000 / year.
Students in our program complete 6 months of integrated electrochemistry science and engineering coursework and laboratories followed by a 9 month paid internship selected by the student. Details about the curriculum and application process are available at our website: https://electrochemistry.uoregon.edu/masters-internship-program/ .
We are happy to waive the application fee for interested students with a qualified background in science and engineering. Please send a pre-application described at https://electrochemistry.uoregon.edu/masters-internship-program/application-process/ to email@example.com to receive a fee-waiver for the formal application process.
Priority deadline for applications is February 15th, however rolling admissions will continue until the cohort is filled.
Applications for the College of Arts and Sciences’ ASPIRE Exchanges are now open for Fall 2023 and AY 2023-24!
The College offers semester and academic year exchange programs with its partner universities. College majors pay their regular IU tuition; this is one of the most affordable ways to study abroad! The cost can be similar to a semester spent in Bloomington.
Applications are due March 1, 2023.
