Physics and Interdisciplinary Materials REUWe are now accepting applications for 2014
The Department of Physics hosts multiple summer undergraduate research programs.
The National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) focuses on research in Condensed Matter Physics and Interdisciplinary Materials. Positions are available in various Penn State departments and are open to undergraduate students who are majoring in physics, chemistry, material science, all branches of engineering, etc. and have an interest in materials research. This REU is jointly hosted by both the Physics Department's NSF REU and the Center for Nanoscale Science (MRSEC) REU.
The Physics Department itself provides funding for Penn State students to conduct research in any research group in the department
Students from across the country and from University Park are eligible to apply and will experience the challenge and excitement of a career in research. Students work closely with one of Penn State's faculty members, together with graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in their research group. In addition students are able to acquire valuable skills, participate in seminars and join in a variety of extra-curricular activities.
