The Nuclear Science Lab is a strong participant of the University of Notre Dame’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program. Th program in the lab provides opportunities for undergraduate physics majors to experience hands-on research in many areas of nuclear physics. Students work closely with faculty and graduate students on a variety of current research projects and benefit from a number of activities organized to enrich their experience. These include: weekly seminars, a course on computer programming, a GRE preparation course, ethics workshops, a workshop on applying to graduate schools, field trips to nearby national laboratories, and the REU Symposium where students present the results of their research.
The program is funded by the U. S. National Science Foundation and is available only to physics majors who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students who are in those groups traditionally underrepresented in sciences (women, members of underrepresented minorities, and those with disabilities) are particularly urged to apply.
