I am a sophomore right now and I'd like to try and get some research exp. as soon as this comming summer. Does anyone have any advise to share about finding/securing research opportunities? I'd really appreciate the help.
Apply for REU programs. All most all Univ and Physics Depts. have REU's in summer. It's a NSF funded program. 10-week. Check the dept websites for more info. Most places have a deadline of Feb 15 to March 1. It is a good experience. Can make connections during this time. Procedure similar to Grad school applications. SOP, Resume, Rec. Letters etc
