tlab and former MCECS Undergraduate Research and Mentoring Program (URMP) student Jeff Udall was offered a highly competitive STARNet internship. He was also invited to present his work at the TECHCON 2017 conference in Austin, TX. STARnet is a collaborative network of stellar research centers finding paths around the fundamental physical limits threatening the long-term growth of the microelectronics industry.

Applications for the 2017 Graduate Research and Mentoring Program (GRMP) are now open. For more info, see Graduate Research and Mentoring Program (GRMP).
Application deadline: Apr 23, 2017
Eligibility: The program is open to PSU graduate students in ECE, CS, Physics, and Systems Science. Students must have completed at least one term at PSU. Students interested in the summer research internship should take the ECE 508 Scholarship Bootcamp (CRN: 65521) in the Spring term.
Effective immediately, the Thursday office hour is moved from 8-9am to 4-5pm.
The research group of Dr. Christof Teuscher has an immediate opening for a paid position for a graduate and/or undergraduate student with knowledge in statistical data entry and analysis. The student will analyze a large amount of data from students that were involved in graduate and undergraduate research in Dr. Teuscher’s lab. Over the last 8 years, each of them completed weekly progress reports, kept task lists, completed a weekly self-evaluation, and received personal feedback once or twice a term. The goal of the research project is to determine metrics and predictors for success in undergraduate and graduate research.
- Graduate or undergraduate student in psychology, sociology, systems science, or related disciplines.
- Knowledge in statistical data analysis.
- Knowledge of statistical software, such as R or SPSS.
- Highly motivated, responsible, independent, with outstanding work ethics.
- Interested in educational research.
- Outstanding academic records.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
- Data entry (enter student evaluation forms into spreadsheet).

“Inspiration for new technologies often can be found in biological systems. A classic example is how plant burrs sticking to an engineer’s dog led to the creation of Velcro.”
“Following in such traditions is Christof Teuscher, an associate professor in Portland State University’s electrical and computer engineering department.”
