Description: 

he NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry recruits ten students each year for 10 weeks of summer research. The theme of the research in this program is Next Generation Materials and Catalysts. Possible research topics within this theme are diverse and include biocatalysis (enzymes), catalysis for small molecule activation, switchable catalysts, bio- and bio-inspired materials, energy storage and conversion materials, and functional materials that operate under extreme conditions. All interested students are welcome to apply, and we especially encourage applicants from small colleges in the Northwest, Rocky Mountain, and Great Plains regions of the United States. American Indian and Alaska Native students, as well as students from tribal colleges in Montana and elsewhere, are especially invited to apply.distribution systems, petroleum reservoir souring, antibiotic resistance development, medical device-related infections, and many others. There will also be lectures and discussions on professional, research, and environmental ethics, and field trips to Butte, Montana and Yellowstone National Park.
