Description: University of Notre Dame's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program, now in its 22nd year, provides opportunities for undergraduate students to experience hands-on participation in research in many areas of Physics. Students are granted stipends, housing allowance, and assistance with travel and food expenses.  In plain English, this means that if you are a rising junior or senior, you can come to Notre Dame and work with a professor for 10 weeks. You will either help this professor with his or her work, or work on an experiment of your own. The REU program gives you valuable research experience to help you decide if physics research is right for you.
Students who are in those groups traditionally underrepresented in science (women, members of underrepresented minorities, and those with disabilities) are particularly urged to apply.
Stipend: $370/wk
Benefits: Housing
Travel Reimbursement
Application Deadline: 02/18/2007
Job Website: http://physics.nd.edu/reu/index.html
Additional Information: The 2007 program would run during
May 27--August 2.
In addition to research with a faculty member, the program includes weekly research seminars (lunch provided), weekly suppers (typically, with the seminar speaker), field trips to nearby national laboratories, a machine-shop course, a programming course, workshops on scientific ethics, and many organized social and cultural activities. The students are required to maintain a research log book, write a research report, and make two oral presentations (one mid-term and one at the REU Symposium at the end of the program).
