Artificial Intelligence and Physics Summer Undergraduate Research Program

May 30 - July 21, 2023

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) at the NSF AI Planning Institute is an eight-week, fully funded opportunity for undergraduate students to explore the intersection of artificial intelligence and physics. Students can work on projects spanning applying AI to data from the Dark Energy Survey, hunting for the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider and learning the laws of cellular biophysics by using machine learning.

SURP students will receive triple mentorship when matched with a graduate student, a postdoc and a faculty member. They will attend a weekly seminar series and receive a certification in the area of AI and physics upon completion. They will also have opportunities to socialize with Carnegie Mellon graduate students from biological sciences, chemistry, mathematical sciences and physics, and go on outings to local Pittsburgh events and landmarks.

This is a fully funded program. Students will receive a generous stipend for their time, and travel and accommodation expenses will be paid.
