The Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence (CSAFE) is accepting applications for its summer research experience for undergraduate students (REU). The 2023 REU program will provide students with advanced research experiences in forensic science.

During the 10-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, graduate students and post-doctoral researchers.

The REU program will be in-person but will include a blended virtual experience. Students will be placed at Iowa State University with partnerships and collaborations with other locations across the country. The REU will begin on May 31, 2023.

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 any other scheduled events. Students will present their research findings at the end-of-program poster session.

Applications for the 2023 REU program will be accepted until all available spaces have been filled. To guarantee an application is reviewed, please apply by Feb. 27, 2023.
