NASA-funded Undergraduate Research Experience – University of Tennessee, Knoxville This Summer

Posted by Tim on February 27, 2020 in Honors Experiences, Networking, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

NASA-funded undergraduate research experience at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville this summer.

The NASA University Leadership Initiative is now accepting applications for University of Tennessee (UT) and non-UT students interested in participating in summer research on the UT Knoxville campus! Students working on this project will contribute to the development of slotted, natural-laminar-flow airfoil technology through aerodynamics and/or structural analyses using industry-standard tools. Research activities will be assigned based on the students’ interests as they align with the current needs of the overall project. In previous years, students worked on airfoil design optimization strategies and laminar-flow-compatible high-lift systems. Some of this research resulted in presentations at national AIAA Aviation and SciTech conferences!

DATES: Sunday, May 31st – Saturday, July 25th
Selected participants will receive a $2,500 monthly stipend (June and July) and on-campus housing through the duration of the summer program.

Interested candidates may submit a cover letter and statement of interest by March 6th to Sarah Segal, Program Manager of the NASA University Leadership Initiative, for further consideration at ssegal1@utk.edu.
