Prospective undergraduates, graduate students, or postdocs should contact Karen Daniels about current or upcoming employment opportunities.
Undergraduates: Consider applying for a Undergraduate Research Grant, and/or speak to me in person about other research opportunities during the school year or summer. These are usually paid through either grant funds or through Work-Study appointments. I am also happy to support student applications for summer internships through the NC Space Grant program. I post job openings to the department’s “Research Opportunities” forum at http://go.ncsu.edu/py-ugrad-research (log in with your UnityID to see the listings.)
Prospective graduate students: Please visit the Physics Graduate Program website for information about how to apply to the PhD program in the NC State Physics Department. Incoming students often have a teaching assistant appointment (TA) for the first year or two, and are then supported on a research grant.
Current graduate students: Please feel welcome to join our weekly lab meetings to learn more about our work, or just stop by to talk. A new student project is available for Summer 2018, performing experiments on force networks and/or rheology (flow) of granular materials. Students from our group have successfully received NSF Graduate Research Fellowships (due October each year) and NC Space Grants (due March each year); I am always happy to work with students on their grant-writing skills.
