*Social Computing Lab Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) 
Summer Program
Human-Computer Interaction Institute
Carnegie Mellon University
May 31, 2016 – August 5, 2016 *

*****Application Deadline: March 15th, 2016 *****

Program Details and Application Instructions Available here*:

The Social Computing Lab at Carnegie Mellon has an exciting summer 
research opportunity for undergraduate students. The Social Computing 
Lab’s REU program allows talented undergraduates to spend 10 weeks 
during the summer in a research laboratory at Carnegie Mellon 
University. Students will conduct research in an area matched to the 
interests expressed in the student’s application. Guidance and 
supervision of the research project will be provided by the faculty 
member as well as, in some cases, postdoctoral fellows and/or graduate 
students. Seminars specific to those participating in the REU program 
will be held weekly including seminars on graduate admissions and career 
opportunities in science, education, computer science and engineering. 
In addition, Social Computing Lab seminars and those held by Carnegie 
Mellon’s Human Computer Interaction Institute and Language Technologies 
Institute and will be open to the students, giving them exposure to a 
wide range of research in social computing. Each student will receive a 
fellowship stipend with funds for housing support.

Applications are encouraged from students who wish to learn to conduct 
research in a modern academic research laboratory under the guidance of 
experienced scientists and engineers and experiment in social computing 
and online collaboration. The REU program will expose students to the 
excitement and opportunities of a research career. This experience will 
provide excellent preparation for students interested in subsequently 
pursuing a Masters or Ph.D. degree. We seek broad participation, 
including members of underrepresented groups as defined by the National 
Science Foundation (African American, Hispanic, Native American) who may 
be considering pursuing further graduate study human-computer 
interaction, psychology or computer science.

Although students from other years may apply, this opportunity is most 
fitting for students at the end of their sophomore or junior year of 
undergraduate studies. We encourage applications from students who would 
like to conduct research in the fields of human-computer interaction, 
online communities, computer-mediated communication, distributed 
collaboration, crowdsourcing, visualization, assistive technology, 
social aspects of privacy and security, and language technologies.
