NanoJapan International Research Experience for Undergraduates

The NanoJapan program will select up to twelve (12) first and second-year undergraduate engineering or physics students who will be placed in a Japanese research lab. The program, sponsored by Rice University, includes a pre-departure orientation at on Rice's campus, a three-week orientation featuring courses on Japanese culture and language, eight weeks of international research directly related to the study of terahertz (THz) dynamics in semiconductors, THz dynamics in carbon nanotubes, and THz dynamics in graphene, a mid-program meeting in Kyoto, and a summer colloquium at Rice. Upon completing the summer research, selected students are expected to complete a follow-on project encouraging other students to to pursue STEM study and research.

Applicants must be freshmen or sophomore US Citizens or permanent residents. No prior work in nanotechnology is required, though a strong interest in the field and its incorporation into your future studies is necessary.
