schoolarships - REU - Research Experience for Undergraduates // Department of Physics // University of Notre Dame Research Experience for Undergraduates 2014 (ND REU) The University of Notre Dame's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program, which celebrated 25 years in 2011, provides opportunities for undergraduate physics majors to experience hands-on participation in research in many areas of physics. Students are granted stipends, university housing, and assistance with travel and food expenses. Basically, this means that if you are a rising junior or senior, you can come to Notre Dame and work with a professor for ten weeks. You will either help this professor with his or her work, or work on an experiment of your own. Students will work closely with faculty and graduate students on a variety of current research projects. The program is available only to U.S. citizens or permanent residents unless tuition/support has been arranged through your university or another organization. 2014 Program Details 2014 REU Application Deadline and Program Dates Contact Information
schoolarships - APS Scholarship for Underrepresented Minorities The APS Minority Scholarship helps increase the number of under-represented minorities obtaining degrees in physics. It provides funding and mentoring to minority physics students, helping them enhance their education and successfully prepare for a variety of careers. History The Scholarship was started in 1980. The program, through the generosity of corporate and individual donors, has graduated students who have received their Ph.D.s in physics and are now working as physics faculty members in universities, as well as research scientists at corporations and national labs. Some past scholars have also become high school physics teachers. Scholar Selection Each year, the APS Committee on Minorities in Physics (COM) acts as the selection committee for this scholarship which attracts many excellent applicants.

schoolarships - Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) | Department of Physics Welcome to the Georgetown REU Site in Materials Physics! Undergraduate students are invited to apply for a 10-week summer research program to engage in a focused research project in materials physics, working closely with a faculty mentor and other researchers. Taking advantage of Georgetown's location in the nation's capital, this REU program will also feature a science-and-society component to encourage students to explore the connection between scientific research and the world outside the laboratory. In addition, REU participants will join other physics and chemistry undergraduates in a variety of professional development workshops and social and networking activities. Research Projects in Materials Physics Projects include experimental, computational, and theoretical work in nanoscale physics, soft matter, device physics, biophysics, and cold-atom systems. Science and Society Activities Many of the grand challenges facing society today have a significant scientific component.

Mather, who shared the 2006 Nobel Prize in Physics for his precise measurements of the primordial heat radiation of the Big Bang, has turned his sights to a more Earthly ambition. He has spent part of his prize money to bring more physics and physicists into government. The John and Jane Mather Foundation for Science and the Arts and the American Institute of Physics (AIP) have created the Mather Policy Intern Program, an endowed program that sends two undergraduate physics majors to Washington, DC, each summer where they will spend their break working in Congress or in other government offices where policy is formulated.

schoolarships - Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Each summer the Department of Physics at Purdue runs a National Science Foundation funded Research Experience for Undergraduates program. This year's 10 week program runs from May 27, 2014 until August 1, 2014. Applications will be accepted until all position are filled. However, since we begin reviewing applications in early February, please apply before February 10 for full consideration. The main goal of the program is to give undergraduates an opportunity to participate in a forefront research project. Start application process Download REU-2013 flyer Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) An associated program offers a similar research opportunity to K-12 teachers. Some program highlights of the REU program are: Research project In each research project students will work closely with a member of our faculty. Stipend Each student will receive a stipend of $450 per week. Weekly seminars Students will learn about current research frontiers in physics. Social programs Conferences

Professor, Dept. of Physics, Enrico Fermi Institute, and the College, and Chairman, Dept. of Physics. Experimental physics, particle physics. My current research involves studies of oscillations between different flavors of neutrinos. Our group is also completing several studies of CP violation in the neutral kaon system. Selected Publications: Epsilon'/Epsilon results from KTeV. Related Links: Updated 1/2008 Back to Top James W. See Prof. Henry J. Ph.D., California, Berkeley, 1971. Our group is looking for Supersymmetry, Large Extra Dimensions, heavy right-handed quarks, new gauge bosons corresponding to new symmetries, and other new phenomena related to explaining electro-weak symmetry breaking, flavor, and the mass hierarchy. In addition, our group is developing picosecond electronics and detectors for the identification of charged particles and the precise measurement of photon momenta.
