Research Experiences for Undergraduates:
Condensed Matter and Materials Physics
at the University of Florida

Our REU grant was not funding for the of Summer 2018 and hence will not run. Please check back with us next year after we reapply for funding.

Participants in the program will conduct research and take part in group activities including seminars on cutting-edge areas of materials physics; workshops focusing on graduate programs, career opportunities in the physical sciences and engineering, and scientific communications skills; and field trips to laboratories on and off campus. You can get a better idea of these activities from the links above. Weekends during the program will be left open for participants to explore the abundant attractions of North and Central Florida.

Eligibility: REU participants must be undergraduate students and must be citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. We especially encourage applications from members of groups under-represented in science and engineering, and from students enrolled at institutions where research opportunities are limited. For more information, please contact the Program Director, Selman Hershfield.
