Summer Math Biology Research Opportunity at NCSU

The Research Training Group in Mathematical Biology at NCSU is now recruiting 3-4 undergrads to work on a research project over the summer via the RTG. Students will work on a project in mathematical biology with emphasis on using techniques for parameter estimation and modeling. Students are expected to work on their project for 10 weeks and they will be compensated $4,000 for this period. They will work in a team on a project and are expected to be on campus for the duration of the project. This project will be run similar to REU projects and students are expected to present their results at the NCSU summer undergraduate research symposium and at the RTG-tutorial workshop on parameter estimation. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present their results at the Joint Math Meeting in January.
They should include
A statement (1 page) discussion why they want to participate in undergraduate research.
– Have completed differential equations (MA341), linear algebra (MA405??) and have experience with programming (in Matlab or other programs)
– An unofficial transcript.
Preference will be given to rising Juniors and Seniors, but this is not a requirement. Please send your materials to Dr. Mette Olufsen (msolufse@ncsu.edu).
