A summer internship at Nagoya University, Japan, for six undergraduate students to do research and development on the “Neutron Optics Parity and Time Reversal EXperiment” (NOPTREX), which will investigate the matter/antimatter asymmetry of the Universe. Recruitment, selection and training will be done by the collaborating institutions: University of Kentucky, Indiana University, Berea College, Eastern Kentucky University, Western Kentucky University, Centre College, and Hendrix College. Participants will receive extensive individualized training during the prior academic year as they develop specialized hardware for the experiement to prepare them for specific tasks during their research in Japan. Participants will learn collaborative skills as they share their progress with each other and their Japanese mentors in weekly collaboration video conference meetings during the academic year. They will receive additional scientific and cultural awareness training during two in-person collaboration meetings before travel to Japan.
Participants must be US citizens or permanent residents and be enrolled as an undergraduate (6 participants) or graduate (1 participant) student for the entire 2023-24 academic year, with preference for students with prior reserach experience in a field related to nuclear physics.
