Description: The Department of Physics along with Center for Nanoscale Science (a Penn State University Material Research Science and Engineering Center, MRSEC) has been designated a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site by the National Science Foundation Division of Materials Research. Positions are available for research projects in laboratories located 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. The REU program gives visiting undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in frontier materials physics and materials research at a major research facility. Students work closely with a Penn State faculty member, together with graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the research group. By participating, students experience the challenge and excitement of a career in research (and perhaps the occasional frustrations too). In addition students are able to acquire valuable skills, participate in seminars and join in a variety of extra-curricular activities.
