Spend a summer learning about cutting-edge imaging science at one of the newest NSF Science and Technology Centers in the United States. Your efforts will help push the limits of real-time functional imaging by advancing and combining different imaging modalities including visible microscopy, X-ray, nano-probe, and electron microscopy. STROBE brings together scientists and students from FIU, the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of California Los Angeles, the University of California at Berkeley, Fort Lewis College, and the University of California at Irvine. Several national laboratories, industries, and international institutions are also partnering with STROBE.


  • One page statement that includes up to three labs you would like to work with, an explanation of why you would like to work with this lab, and a little bit about yourself, your motivations, and your interest in STROBE and imaging science.
  • Resume/CV that includes courses taken in progress and GPA.
  • Letter of recommendation from a faculty advisor.
  • Unofficial transcript

All programs include $4,000-5,000 stipend and additional funding may be available for housing/travel for those who need it.

Program dates vary but are typically 8-10 weeks, include research in a supervised lab experience, supporting group and social activities, and academic, science, and career development opportunities.

Undergraduates will present their summer findings at the STROBE Summer Undergraduate Research Scholar Symposium in August 2019.

Overall questions can be directed to Sarah Schreiner.

Please note the application deadline February 8, 2019. Researchers will be announced in March 2019.
