Research Positions

updated 2/13/18


Here is the list of 2018 Undergrad Summer Research Positions

On this list you will find Physics/Applied Physics/SLAC professors who have expressed interest in mentoring a summer research student.  Note, however, that students may work with any faculty member in Physics/Applied Physics/SLAC whether or not they are listed in this table. This also includes faculty in other departments, such as Biophysics, whose research is in physics or is closely physics-related. 

Both Physics and Engineering Physics majors are eligible. However, Physics and Engineering Physics majors who wish to work with a faculty member in an Engineering Department are asked to apply to that Department's Summer Research Program (partial list here).  You also are encouraged to contact other professors who are not listed, including those in related departments (e.g. , Biophysics, Chemistry, Radiology, etc), as long as the faculty member's research is in physics or is closely physics-related.  If you wish to work with someone in another department, consult with Rick Pam prior to submitting your application.
