Description:    

This 8-week program will provide novel research experiences for undergraduates and K-12 science teachers. Research opportunities span a broad range of physics, including high-energy and intensity-frontier particle physics, beam and accelerator physics and condensed matter and materials physics.

Matched with an NIU faculty mentor, participants will gain vital research skills and visit both nearby Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratories. Activities will also include workshops on scientific communication, lab safety, responsible conduct in research and participation in a campus-wide student poster session at the end of the program.

Applications received by February 2, 2020 receive full consideration. Applications received after that date may be considered if space allows.

Primary selection criteria include academic record (via uploaded transcripts), career objectives (via a personal statement) and at least two letters of recommendation. Note that it is the responsibility of applicants to ensure that reference letters are received in a timely manner. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable. The personal statement should be a short essay (≤~ 4000 characters) detailing your previous research experiences (if any) and personal and professional goals, and how you believe this program in particular would assist you in attaining those goals. It would be helpful to mention any skills that you have that might aid you in your research, including, but not limited to, computer and programming proficiency, laboratory techniques, a strong math background and personal skills.

Selected participants in the REU (RET) program will receive a $4000 ($6000) stipend, free housing and a food allowance.
