The University of Florida International REU in Gravitational Physics is a unique opportunity to experience research in world-leading gravitational wave research environments around the world as an undergraduate. After meeting in Gainesville FL at the beginning of the program, students will be placed with mentors at a range of sites in Europe, Asia or Australia for 9-10 weeks during the summer of 2023. We aim to take a total of 12 students, but only 1 or 2 students will be sent to each site. The REU offers a chance for students to broaden their international and cultural horizons and develop a strong sense of independence while conducting cutting-edge research in one of the most exciting and fastest growing fields of modern physics.
A range of project topics is offered encompassing all aspects of gravitational wave physics ranging from experimental laser interferometry to the astrophysics of black holes.
All transport and accommodation costs are paid by the program and students receive a $6000 stipend for the summer.
We are committed to building a diverse physics workforce and strongly encourage applications from students with backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM and first-generation college students. We also encourage applications from students who may not have extensive research programs at their own schools.
