Opportunity to Present Student Research at STLAURS

| January 30, 2013
St. Louis Area Undergraduate Research Symposium

Students should apply by April 1 to present their research April 27 at SIUE.

Looking for a professional setting for students to present research?

The annual St. Louis Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (STLAURS) allows undergraduates from several outstanding St. Louis area universities the opportunity to do just that.

Any undergraduate student from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, St. Louis University, University of Missouri at St. Louis, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, Webster University, Washington University or SIUE who has conducted research under the supervision of a faculty mentor is invited to submit an application and abstract.

The event will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at SIUE’s Morris University Center. The application deadline is Monday, April 1, 2013.  STLAURS is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about the research of their peers and network with faculty mentors.

The event is free to participating students and includes a light breakfast (coffee, sweet rolls, and doughnuts), sit-down lunch, and the chance to hear keynote speaker Dr. John Mateja, a nationally recognized expert in undergraduate research and a nuclear physicist with research interests in light heavy-ion reactions.

The symposium will be capped at approximately 100 students, so the application process will be a competitive one.

For more information about STLAURS, including the day’s schedule of events, application and presentation instructions, a biography of Dr. Mateja, campus maps, awards, and the application submission portal, visit their website at www.stlaurs.weebly.com.
