The University of Notre Dame's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program, now in its 34th year, provides opportunities for undergraduate physics majors to experience hands-on participation in research in many areas of physics.
Students will work closely with faculty and graduate students on a variety of current research projects. The summer program not only provides each student direct experience with a specific project but also provides important exposure to all areas of physics research.
You will benefit from a number of activities organized to enrich your experience. These include: weekly seminars, a course on computer programming, a GRE preparation course, ethics workshops, a workshop on applying to graduate schools, field trips to nearby national laboratories, and the REU Symposium where you will present the results of your research. You will also maintain a logbook and write a project report. In addition, a variety of recreational and social activities are organized to make your stay with us “fun”.
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. The REU program gives you valuable research experience to help you decide if physics research is right for you.
Students are granted stipends, university housing, and assistance with travel and food expenses.
Students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in sciences (women, members of underrepresented minorities, and those with disabilities) are particularly urged to apply.
The program is available only to physics majors who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. International students are considered only if financial support has been arranged through their university or other sources.
