The K-State Physics REU program offers summer fellowships to do world-class research in our friendly physics department in the scenic Flint Hills.
You must be an enrolled college student who is a US citizen or permanent resident to be eligible for participation in this NSF-funded program.
The Kansas State summer research program offers students an opportunity to perform cutting-edge research. As a student in our program, you will be paired with a faculty research mentor. Time will also be spent in a classroom setting, where faculty members will describe the physics behind your own project and your peers' projects as well.
For 1-2 hours per week, philosophy faculty lead discussions of ethical issues in physics, including case studies of some famous ethical violations in recent years.
You will develop a web page on your project, and give regular updates on your research to your fellow student researchers. Your project will culminate in an oral or poster presentation summarizing your research project, and in the creation of a web page summarizing your experiences.
We will organize social activities with other REU groups on campus . In past years, we have had dinner at mentors' homes, ice-cream socials, canoe trips and other excursions.
Look over the projects from 2018 or recent year's REU participants to get an idea of the research areas you would like to be involved in.
Additional Salary Information: In addition to the stipend, a $750 travel allowance and on-campus room & board will be provided.
