ERC Summer Opportunities for Individuals with Disabilities

Apply Now!

Apply now! The National Science Foundation-sponsored Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) are recruiting individuals with disabilities into programs for Summer 2017. 

ERCs are located at universities all across the United States, each in close partnership with industry. Each ERC provides an environment in which academe and industry collaborate in pursuing strategic advances in complex engineered systems and systems-level technologies that have the potential to spawn whole new industries or to radically transform the product lines, processing technologies, or service delivery methodologies of current industries. Activity within ERCs lies at the interface between the discovery-driven culture of science and the innovation-driven culture of engineering.

AccessERC is a supplemental project of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering. CSNE headquarters are based at the University of Washington in Seattle, and core partners include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and San Diego State University. The CSNE aspires to help people with disabilities and develop novel modes of human-computer interaction by connecting brains with technology.

 

This map of the United States shows locations of NSF-funded Engineering Research Centers. Nineteen Centers are pictured on the map. Their locations include Washington, California, Arizona, Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota. Four themes are presented: biotechnology and health care; energy, sustainability, and Infrastructure; Advanced Manufacturing; and microelectronics, sensing, and information technology.

Summer 2017 ERC opportunities are listed below. Individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply! Each ERC has unique applications and deadlines. Programs marked as (2016) are currently updating their websites for 2017 programs.
