Research Opportunities at Tongji University China for Graduate Students applying to NSF East Asia And Pacific Summer Institutes

As a result of the recent call for applicants to the NSF Program: East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI), PEER and Tongji University in Shanghai, China have collaborated to provide some opportunities for graduate students interested in applying to the NSF program.

The following list of professors from Tongji University are willing to host student researchers from the United States in their laboratories. US-based graduate students are encouraged to review this list of professors to determine which professorís laboratory is the best fit to the studentís research interests. Graduate students are encouraged to contact the professor directly to discuss the development of a research opportunity at Tongji University as it relates to the NSF solicitation. Please copy both Tongji University Professor Ying Zhou and PEER Outreach Director Heidi Faison on your initial interest email.

The 2011 EASPI application is now open and will close at 5:00 pm local time on November 10, 2010. Application instructions are available online at For further information concerning benefits, eligibility, and tips on applying, applicants are encouraged to visit or
