Undergraduates and secondary school teachers interested in participating in a 10-week summer physics research program at Brigham Young University are invited to apply. There are exciting opportunities in a number of areas including optics (using lasers of all kinds including ultrashort pulse and UV lasers), computer modeling, plasmas, solid state and thin film science, acoustics, theory, and astronomy.
Undergraduate participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, round-trip travel expenses to Provo, Utah, housing, and a food stipend. In addition, selected students will be funded to travel to a regional meeting of the American Physical Society to give a presentation on their research results.
Participants in the Research Experience for Teachers will be compensated at the same rate they get for teaching for a 10-week period during the academic year (to the extent that our budget permits). Out-of-town RET participants will also receive a $1,000 stipend to assist with housing and food for the duration of the program.
