Finding research opportunities

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Finding research opportunities

Postby swilliams » Fri Jan 12, 2007 7:29 pm

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

You will get paid.

All the best
