  • Academic Year Undergraduate Research Grant (Academic Year URG)

    Academic Year Undergraduate Research Grants (Academic Year URGs) fund independent academic and creative work in all fields of study.  Under faculty supervision, URG winners immerse themselves in novel scholarly projects in the laboratory, the library, or the studio, on campus and around the world.

    All undergraduate students are eligible for these grants.

    Grants provide up to $1,000 of support for research expenses, such as lab materials, travel to archives or field sites, study participant compensation among many others.

  • Advanced Materials Lab

    Research in the Advanced Materials Lab ranges from developing a fundamental understanding of new materials to working with industries to apply advanced materials to new products.  The main thrusts of the lab has been polymer nanocomposites and shape memory alloys, however recent work has also  focused on biomaterials and biomimetic structures using graphene oxide.  Undergrads play a central role in the lab, fabricating and testing samples as well as devising new research projects.  This is evidenced by the fact that several undergraduate researchers from the lab

  • Amaral Lab

    Complex systems have interacting parts that exhibit more properties or behaviors on a whole than are apparent from examining the parts separately.

  • Aphasia and Neurolinguistics Research Laboratory: Studies of Language and the Brain

    Research in the Aphasia and Neurolinguistics Research Laboratory examines language processing and production in healthy volunteers and patients with stroke-induced or primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Of particular interest is charting language breakdown and recovery patterns based on what is known about normal language processing and representation. These patterns provide blueprints for clinical protocols and address the utility of this translational approach for studying language disorders.

  • Archaeology Laboratory

    Analysis of artifacts from prehistoric and historic archaeological sites.  Archaeological science, particularly micro analysis in archaeology: soil chemistry, microartifact analysis, paleoethnobotany, ceramic thin sections.

  • Auditory Research Laboratory

    Our group is interested in understanding the biomechanics of the inner ear and applying this knowledge towards improving the diagnosis of hearing loss and other diseases of the ear. Undergraduates participate in experiments and data analysis.

  • Barry Farrell Summer Experiential Learning Awards

    Each year the department provides financial support to allow sophomore or junior political science majors to engage in summer experiential learning that is related to their political science studies. Experiences could include an internship or work with a non-profit public service organization. Support is not provided for undergraduate research or for professional development oriented work experiences.

  • Benton J. Underwood Summer Research Fellowship

    Each summer the Psychology Department offers two or more undergraduates a Benton J. Underwood Summer Research Fellowship.  Students who accept these fellowships spend most of the summer working on research at Northwestern with a psychology professor. Both current juniors and current sophomores can apply. Priority is given to current juniors who are majoring in psychology, and work on an Underwood project often serves as the foundation for a senior thesis project.

  • Bilingualism and Psycholinguistics Research Laboratory

    Our lab conducts research on language processing, language learning, and language and memory in bilinguals and monolinguals. Broadly speaking, research in our lab focuses on bilingualism/multilingualism, psycholinguistics (spoken and written language; language and cognition), and on-line cross-modal information integration of auditory and visual input (with eye-tracking).

    Research Assistants should plan to work a minimum of 10 hours per week. Tasks will include stimuli preparation, data collection, and data coding.

  • Bio-inspired Sensors and Optoelectronics Lab (BISOL)

    We have a wide range of projects that are mostly related to “sensing”. These include sensing for medical applications, such as smart fabrics for early detection and prevention of diabetic foot ulcers (currently leading to ~70,000 amputations each year in the US). We also have developed one of the most sensitive infrared cameras with many industrial, medical and homeland security applications.
