NIU's 8-week program will provide novel research experiences for undergraduates and also K-12 science teachers. Research opportunities span a broad range of physics, including high-energy and intensity-frontier particle physics, beam and accelerator physics and condensed matter and materials physics.
Matched with an NIU faculty mentor, participants will gain vital research skills and visit both nearby Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratories. Activities will also include workshops on scientific communication, lab safety, responsible conduct in research and an end of program student poster session.
Applications received by February 1, 2019 receive full consideration. Applications received after that date may be considered if space allows.
Primary selection criteria include academic record, career objectives and letters of recommendation.
Participants selected will receive a $4000 stipend ($6000 for teachers), free housing and a food allowance.
