Mathematics Internships & Opportunities

Research Opportunities

Stonehill Undergraduate Research Experience (S.U.R.E.)

S.U.R.E. is an opportunity for students who have completed their first year at Stonehill to perform full-time, high-quality research over the summer months under the guidance of an expert faculty researcher. A student in the S.U.R.E. program spends 8-10 weeks of the summer collaborating with a professor - and sometimes other students - on an original research project that fits into the faculty member’s overall research program. 

The experience includes postgraduate career seminars, program-wide outings, weekly lunches, and a student poster session in the fall. S.U.R.E. students generally live on campus and receive a stipend for their summer work.

RECENT EXAMPLES

  • Julia Afeltra ’16, Michael Dias ’16, David Lawson ’16, Christopher McKay ’16, Ryan Paulik ’16 and Sara Wilson ’15 worked with Hsin-hao Su, associate professor of Mathematics, and Heiko Todt, assistant professor of Mathematics, on projects that include finding the edge-balance indexes of the L-product graph, finding all possible friendly indexes of the Barycentric subdivision of wheel graphs, as well as determining which cubic graphs are edge-magic.

Research Presentations

  • Matt Tardiff ’14, “Multiple Episodes in the Course of Body Dysmorphic Disorder” presented at Mind Brain Research Day at the Alpert Medical School, Brown University in March 2014 (in the process of being submitted for publication).
  • Terence Rose ’13 made a presentation titled “On Balance Index Sets of Bi-degree and Tri-degree Graphs” at the 43rd Southeastern International Conference on Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Computing at Florida Atlantic University.
  • Daniel Bouchard ’12 presented “On the Balance Index Sets of Genaralized Books and Ear Expansion Graphs” the 24th Midwest Conference on Combinatorics, Cryptography and Computing at Illinois State University.
  • Patrick Clark ’12 presented “On the Edge-Balance Index Sets of L-product of Cycle by Star Graphs” at the 24th Midwest Conference on Combinatorics, Cryptography and Computing at Illinois State University.

In addition, student research has been published in Congressus Numerantium and the International Journal of Contemporary Mathematical Sciences.
