Undergraduate Research Experience

The cornerstone of the PODEMOS program is the initiation of an undergraduate research experience program for undergraduate students from Mexico to work alongside soft-matter faculty at the University of Notre Dame. Undergraduate positions will have travel and expenses fully supported, and take part in career enrichment activities offered by iSURE and the Notre Dame Center for Nanoscience (NDNano). 

Faculty involved in the summer 2019 program are drawn from the department's soft materials core, as well as other researchers in broader CBE disciplines. Please see "Participating ND Faculty" at right in order to find out more about each professor's research. 

Applications for the 2019 program will again be handled by iSURE. Apply here, select program #15, and enter "PODEMOS" in the box for Q1. For Q39, select project #15 (PODEMOS). After completing the application, arrange for a letter of recommendation from one of your professors to be sent to Amber Li. Further details are on the FAQ page.

If you have further questions, please contact Professor Jonathan Whitmer.
