Update for AM-SURE 2021: the program will run this summer but the exact format will be determined later and will depend on the local and global health situation and whether NYU's campus is open. We expect the majority of the program to be online, but if there is an opportunity for some in-person interactions, we will make that possibility available for students who so desire. Even though students may not be physically present, we expect them to be fully engaged in research and with the program activities for the duration of the program. Please interpret the information below with these caveats in mind.

What: A summer research program for undergraduate students interested in applied mathematics, both modeling and simulation. The main goal is for each student to complete a research project under the joint guidance of graduate students, postdocs, and faculty in the mathematics department at NYU. Some projects will involve theoretical modeling and computer simulation, and others may involve Courant's Applied Math Lab, where students will help conduct experiments to validate models and simulations. The program will include a set of coherent activities such as frequent group academic meetings and social gatherings. Students will be given office space and computational resources to complete their projects.
Here is a list of projects and research reports for past AM-SURE research programs.
When: June 1 - July 30 2021 (9 weeks)
Who: Upper-level undergraduates (primarily juniors, though seniors or strong sophomores may apply too.) Students should have have excellent mathematical ability, strong computational skills, an interest in physical modeling, and a creative and independent approach to problem-solving. All undergraduate students from any major, year, or university are welcome to apply, provided they are US citizens or permanent residents. Non-US citizens may apply too provided they are a student at NYU or one of its associated campuses.
Expectations: Students must commit to be full-time research and to be present for the entire duration of the program. There will be frequent group meetings that students will be expected to attend. Students will write a report, and will give presentations on their work at the end of the summer and during the NYU math department Fall undergraduate research gathering. Students will receive competitive salary comparable to full-time employment.
How to apply: Fill out an application for the Summer 2021 program by Wednesday, March 3. If you are accepted you will hear back by the end of March.
