 Summer Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) Program
 
 The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the
 University of Massachusetts Amherst is soliciting applications from
 middle and high school teachers for the summer RET program.
 
 
 Up to six teachers will be selected to participate in research at the
 Silvio O. Conte Center for Polymer Research. Participants will gain
 experience under the guidance of an established research group by
 investigating a topic from a broad spectrum in chemistry, physics or
 engineering of polymers. Examples of projects under consideration
 are: nanomembranes, crystallization in confined geometries, sensors,
 and polymer deformation. Please visit the Research Groups page for
 information on current MRSEC funded research, the principal
 investigators involved, and potential areas of research for RETs.
 
 
 The program begins the last full week of June and has a flexible
 duration of 6-8 weeks. Benefits include a competitive $800/week
 stipend, up to $1,000 to defray relocation expenses, six graduate
 credits, and 135 PDPs.
