The Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE) is accepting applications for its summer research experience for undergraduate students (REU). The 2024 REU program will provide students with advanced research experiences in forensic science.
During the nine-week immersive internship program, students will discover how statistical and computational concepts apply to CSAFE’s key research areas in pattern or digital evidence. They will work on interdisciplinary teams with faculty and graduate students.
“CSAFE’s REU program offers unparalleled opportunities for undergraduate students to apply their statistical knowledge in a forensic evidence context,” said Anthony Greiter, the learning and development specialist at CSAFE.
The REU program will be in-person but may include a blended virtual experience. Students will be placed at Iowa State University with partnerships and collaborations with other locations nationwide. The REU will be held June 17-Aug. 16, 2024
Students chosen for the CSAFE REU program are expected to participate in program activities for approximately 40 hours each week and join in team meetings and other scheduled events. Students will have the opportunity to present their research findings during the poster session at the International Association for Identification 2024 Annual Educational Conference in Reno, Nevada.
Applications for the 2024 REU program will be accepted until all available spaces have been filled. To guarantee an application is reviewed, please apply by Feb. 19, 2024.
