The Georgetown University Department of Physics invites undergraduate students to apply for a 10-week summer research program to engage in a focused research project in materials physics, working closely with a faculty mentor and other researchers. Taking advantage of Georgetown's location in the nation's capital, this REU program also features a science-and-society component that allows students to explore the connection between scientific research and the world outside the laboratory. In addition, REU participants join other students in a variety of professional development workshops and social and networking activities.
Founded in 1789 and located in the nation's capital, Georgetown University is a student-centered research university that offers a unique educational experience that prepares the next generation of global citizens to lead and make a difference in the world. The physics department is a vibrant community of about 60 undergraduate majors, 30 Ph.D. students, 10 post-doctoral fellows, and 14 faculty me...mbers. The department's academic and research programs feature close student-faculty interactions and encourage collaborative and interdisciplinary work.
