An NSF-supported PREM project at New Mexico Highlands University (Las Vegas, NM 87701) is currently looking to fill two postdoc positions. Desirable qualifications for these positions are a PhD in Chemistry or Materials Science with knowledge of organic chemical synthesis, x-ray diffraction analysis, and/or quantum computations. More details on this project can be found on NMHU’s PREM website http://cs.nmhu.edu/prem2/.
Earlier this year, three PREM students represented Puerto Rico at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) — the world’s largest international pre-college science competition — in Los Angeles, CA.
Last year, the PREM program at the University of Texas, El Paso received a Creativity Award — a unique and competitive research award that focuses on using scientific research as a vehicle to provide multi-level education opportunities to students from underrepresented groups in STEM disciplines.

Opportunities for partnerships
The University of Texas at El Paso and the University of California, Santa Barbara have joined forces to create a research and education program that, according to UTEP, “will combine materials science and engineering research to develop new materials for photovoltaic applications, or solar panels.” Learn more about this NSF-funded collaboration.
