|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
