Old Dominion University (ODU) in Norfolk, Virginia - in partnership with Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) in Newport News, and with the support of the National Science Foundation -is conducting a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program to provide research opportunities for college and university students in accelerator physics and nuclear physics.
The goals are to expose students to the sense of excitement and accomplishment that accompanies independent research and to provide information and contacts that can improve their chances of remaining in physics.
Student researchers will operate with well-guided independence to contribute usefully to advances in superconducting RF structures, novel accelerator design, and particle detectors. In some cases, students will be co-authors on resulting publications.
The summer 2022 program will run for 10 weeks from Tuesday, May 31st to Friday, August 5th. The students will work with ODU faculty and Jefferson Lab staff scientists at Jefferson Lab on their research projects.
Selected students will receive compensation ($580 per week), and a meal allowance ($10 per day). Deadline for application is Friday, February 18, 2022.
Please be aware we expect the 2022 program to take place virtually at this time. We will update this information should this status change.
