Summer Research Internships (SURI)

Summer Research Internships 2020

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University is offering paid summer research internships for qualified U.S. citizens and permanent residents not currently enrolled at ASU as well as current ASU students enrolled in a 4+1 program. Participants will be connected with faculty members to pursue 8-week-long research projects from approximately May 27th to July 25th, 2020.

Students from all branches of engineering are welcome to apply, but those between their junior and senior years who are interested in earning a PhD will be given highest consideration.

Robert S. Gutzwiller
Cognitive engineering applications to healthcare, cyberspace, transportation, and defense
Polytechnic campus Human factors in cybersecurity. We are studying cyber attacker behavior in moderate fidelity settings. The student will assist the project team in researching the use of human psychological, information processing mechanisms in understanding and disrupting attacker cognition and decision-making. Students are also able to contribute to experimental design and programmingaspects of the simulated cyber environments we currently work within.
Robert S. Gutzwiller
Cognitive engineering applications to healthcare, cyberspace, transportation, and defense
Polytechnic campus Trust in automation and autonomy. We are currently evaluating different measures of trust in automation as part of a review of subjective trust in technology. The student would assist with literature reviews, work as part of a team devoted to understanding how trust has been measured, and how to improve these measures in the future. Students are free to develop their own ideas and experiments in this context; for example, an experiment may be designed to test trust measures with robotics or automated systems in a human subjects experiment.
Robert S. Gutzwiller
Cognitive engineering applications to healthcare, cyberspace, transportation, and defense
Polytechnic campusAttention modeling. The lab has a deep history of building models of human attention, particularly for workers under high mental load (originally funded by NASA). The student would assist in developing or contributing to ongoing work in this area, in addition to reading the relevant literature and developing new ideas. This has applications to aviation, process control and management, fault diagnostics and potentially cybersecurity environments.

Each participant will receive a $5,000 stipend. Housing for research at the Tempe campus will be at Tooker House and housing for research at the Polytechnic campus will be at Century Hall. Cost of housing will be deducted from the stipend. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from Tempe, Arizona.

Application for Summer 2020 will open up December 1st, 2019 and will be open until December 31st, 2019
