Description:
The Kansas State summer research program offers students an opportunity to perform cutting-edge research. As a student in our program, you will be paired with a faculty research mentor. Furthermore, on average about 2-3 hours per week will be spent in a classroom setting, where faculty members will describe the physics behind your own project and your peers' projects as well. For 1-2 hours per week, Dr. Bruce Glymour, Professor of Philosophy and co-director for the KSU Center for the Understanding of Origins, and Amy Lara, Associate Professor of Philosophy, will lead discussions of ethical issues in physics, including case studies of some famous ethical violations in recent years.You will develop a web page on your project, and give regular updates on your research to your fellow student researchers. Your project will culminate in an oral or poster presentation summarizing your research project, and in the creation of a web page summarizing your experiences.

Each student will receive a stipend of $5,200.

Room and board will be provided in the dorms.

Student travel to Manhattan, KS, will be provided (up to $600).

Eligibility:

Students who have completed a course in modern physics are eligible. US citizens and permanent residents are encouraged to apply.
