Research Experiences for Undergraduates - Data Science and Crime Analytics
The Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of North Carolina - Charlotte is seeking applications for its REU Site: Data Science and Crime Analytics. The REU site brings together 9 selected undergraduate students to work with faculty from multiple departments to work on a research team during the 10-week program. Students will conduct research, attend workshops, and receive a stipend ($5,000), travel ($500) and food ($1,000) allowances, and university housing during the 2021 summer program.
Student teams will work with faculty mentors in their research track for 40 hours per week to complete one or more projects during the summer experience. In some cases students may work with a local criminal justice agency as part of their project. Students will present their research at a final luncheon and submit a manuscript for publication.
The application is available on the program’s website at crime-analytics.uncc.edu. Reviews of applications will begin on March 15, 2021. All materials must be submitted electronically. Please contact Dr. Matthew Phillips: Crime-Analytics@uncc.edu if you have questions.
