W. M. KECK
COMPUTATIONAL MATERIALS THEORY CENTER
Several student fellowships are available from a grant with NASA/JPL. The fellowship covers $600 per month for the academic year, $1,300 per month for the summer and the month of January. It also provides travel funds to conferences (2-3 conferences per year). It requires about 12 hours per week during the semester and about 35 hours per week during summer and the month of January. The fellowships are for two years.
The purpose of the fellowship is to introduce and involve undergraduate and/or graduate students in research projects in the area of Computational Materials Theory. The research work involves learning Solid State Physics, carrying out search in journals, learning and carrying out numerical simulations for materials properties (the actual programs are available), visualization of results, etc. Preference will be given to juniors and seniors.
The requirements are that candidates are full-time students, hold US citizenship and are members of underrepresented groups (African American, Hispanic, Philippine Islands, females, etc.)
Interested candidates should contact: Prof. Nicholas Kioussis, Department of Physics, California State University Northridge; Phone: 818 677-7733; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
