Workshops and Colloquia
We invite graduate students in the Applied Physics, Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry, Bioengineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and NanoEngineering, and Statistics departments to present a 5 or 12 minute talk on their current research.
The Smalley-Curl Institute (SCI) Summer Research Colloquium began in 1986 as the RQI Colloquium, and has taken place in August of each year since then. The purpose of the SCI Summer Research Colloquium is to provide undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working at Rice with an opportunity to present their most recent work.
The Kavli Foundation workshops aim at communicating the current state of the art across a range of interrelated fields, and envisioning future needs and developments that will drive both the science and technology of sensing. Each workshop in a series features invited talks by experts in the field followed by moderated round table discussions between the speakers and other attendees.
The Nanoscale Science program combines advanced science and engineering courses in nanostructures and nanotechnology with training in management, business, entrepreneurship and communication and a required practical work experience. Students can choose electives from focus areas in nano-materials, nano-optics, nano-photonoics, nano-bio, management and tech entrepreneurship according to their interest.
The ICGA is intended to support innovative and collaborative research from trainees at both the Department of Nanomedicine - Houston Methodist and Rice University. Under this mechanism, 3 projects will be awarded the amount of $10,000 each. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at Rice University and Methodist, as well as research associates on an academic track, instructors on an academic track, and visiting students at Methodist are highly encouraged to apply as principal investigators.
This program provides graduate students with the opportunity to propose, plan, and oversee original research projects! The goal of this program is to develop graduate students as leaders in science, especially in the context of mentorship and group management.
