The Physics Department has a number of undergraduate and graduate research opportunities available ranging from experimental astrophysics to soft matter and biophysics.EXPLORE OPPORTUNITIES
To satisfy your curiosity about the Universe, to start a career (including medicine, law, and computers) in a world dependent on technology, for fun, for a solid background for teaching, to be able to make better decisions about technology, either for business or as a citizen, and for important problem-solving skills. Physics is a broad preparation for a variety of careers where science has an impact.LEARN MORE
We have internationally recognized research groups working in fields ranging from soft condensed matter and biological physics to elementary particle physics and cosmology and the search for gravitational waves. You can find out more by looking at our individual research group pages and by writing to individual faculty to find out what specific opportunities are currently available for prospective graduate students.APPLY

Since their discovery in 1956 neutrinos have remained an enigma. Proposed in 1930 to explain the energy spectrum of electrons emerging from nuclear decays it was not until 1998 that they were discover...
Our research focuses on the design, fabrication and testing of integrated circuits which can simulate neuron spiking dynamics on very fast timescales. These circuits are based on a low-tem...

String theory is normally associated with cubic graphs, and as such can reproduce scalar field theory amplitudes for \phi^3 theory. I show how to generalize this construction to arbitrary scalar field...

When colloidal particles are rotated adjacent to nearby floor, strong advective flows are generated around them, even quite far away. When a group of these microrollers is driven, the strong hyd...
