Summer 2009 REU Program: From Small Science to Big Science

Primary Institution: University of Nevada, Las Vegas
City: Las Vegas
State: NV
Job Duration: June 1, 2009 - August 7, 2009
Class Requirement: Must not graduate by June 2009
Position Type: Research

High Pressure Physics and Chemistry
Description: The UNLV Department of Physics and Astronomy is now accepting applications to the Research Experience for Undergraduates Program for the summer of 2009. Bright, motivated undergraduate students are invited to apply for the program. The summer program affords the opportunity to participate in the physics research at UNLV, including:

    * Experimental atomic, molecular, and laser physics
    * Experimental condensed matter physics
    * High pressure science
    * Astrophysics

Students have access to recently expanded research facilities, including x-ray diffractometer, scanning electron microscope, an X-ray photoelectron spectrometer, and many laser laboratories. UNLV physics faculty members also conduct research at national laboratories. It is our expectation that every REU student will have exposure to Big Science at national laboratories as well as Small Science on the UNLV campus. Students must have completed their sophomore or junior year, with at least one year of physics courses. A student who will graduate by the summer of 2009 is not eligible. Students must be U. S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents, majoring in physical sciences or engineering. Physics majors will be given preference. Successful applicants will have good grades, the willingness to work hard, and an interest in science and in research. Previous laboratory experience is helpful but not essential.
