One of the greatest strengths of the McDonnell Center is the vast scope of research opportunities available to the graduate students. From the very beginning of joining the program at Washington University, the students are encouraged to join a research group.
Undergraduate students that may be considering graduate school are encouraged to participate in the Summer Intern Program. Faculty members of the McDonnell Center guide the student on a specific project during the summer. The hours and summer term are flexible and the scope of research topics is very broad.
Recent research topics have included:
- Stimulating Charge Collection in Small-Pixel CZT Detectors - Jason Tang (H. Krawczynski)
- The Effects of Earth's Normal Modes on a Torsion Balance Testing Einstein's Equivalence Principle - Cesiley King (R. Cowsik)
- Data Processing and Analysis for the Snap-shot Digital Array Scanned Interferometer - Jeffrey Wang (W. Smith)
If you are interested in applying for a summer intern position, please contact McDonnell Center faculty members or the Director.
