Research at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL)

The NSCL offers many opportunities to get involved in nuclear physics and astrophysics research. In addition, projects in electrical and mechanical engineering are available within the accelerator group.

Presently, 45 faculty perform their research at the NSCL with about 80 graduate students. Undergraduate students play an active role in many groups. New projects appropriate for undergraduates become available on a continuing basis. Details about the ongoing research and the new technical developments can be found on the NSCL website.

Qualifications

The qualifications vary a lot depending on the project. In general students in physics, chemistry or engineering with an interest in nuclear, astrophysical or accelerator sciences are encouraged to apply.

To apply, please provide the following information:

1) A CV, including a listing of the classes you have taken, your grades and GPA, and other (research) projects you have been involved with. Also list specific skills you may have (e.g. programming in C++ etc).

2) A brief summary of what you are interested doing at NSCL. It might be helpful to look at our graduate brochure ( http://www.nscl.msu.edu/researchers/graduate/Brochure.html ) which lists the research activities of our faculty.

3) When you would like to start doing research, and how many hours per week you can be active.

4) If your interest is in working for pay, credit, or simply for gaining research experience.
