Undergraduate Research in Physics & Astronomy at UCLA - Summer Program
    The University of California, Los Angeles, will offer a research experience program in Physics and Astronomy in which undergraduate students will work with a faculty mentor, as well as other professors, researchers and graduate students on a research project. All interested students are invited to apply for this 10 week summer program from June 22 - August 28, 2009. The participants will gain direct experience by working in ongoing experimental or theoretical research programs in plasma and beam physics, solid state physics, astrophysics and high-energy physics. All students will attend weekly seminars on current in research in physics, workshops on technical writing and GRE preparation, and computer instruction. The experience will culminate with the writing of a report and presentation of findings at a closing Symposium. The educational part of the program will be include social events with participants in other campus research programs, an astronomy camping trip and exploration of the Southern California area. Project descriptions for Summer 2009 can be found at http://reu.physics.ucla.edu/2009/projects/.
