Still Accepting Applications for MURI Scholars on Selected Teams

MURI facilitates the creation and support of multidisciplinary research teams consisting of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, senior staff, and faculty. The primary purpose of these teams is to provide undergraduates a unique opportunity to work with mentors on real-world problems and to gain research skills that can be applied to their college coursework and future careers. During the academic year, students are asked to contribute 120 hours of work to their research team.

The deadline for applications was September 22, 2014; however, we still have a few openings on the following teams:

3. Assessment of the Impact of Next Generation Augmented Virtual Reality (VR) Technology on STEM e-Learning (Drs. El-Mounayri, Wasfy, Fernandez, Rogers, and Ms. Peters)

10. Development of a Virtual Reality Based Psychophysical Assessment Method to Capture the Perceived Arm Position of the Amputee Phantom Limb (Dr. Rogers, Dr. Yoshida, Mr. Baldwin, and Dr. Smith)

11. Assessing the Effectiveness of New Virtual Reality Technology for Inducing Instability during Stance (Drs. Smith, Rogers, and Streepey)
