Undergraduate Research, Research Events and Research Support

  • Undergraduate Research Office The Ohio State University Undergraduate Research Office holds many events to inform and assist students wishing to be or already involved in undergraduate research

  • Research at OSU Physics. This links to the research within the Physics department. Several students have also found research opportunities within the Medical Center and/or engineering.


  • INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO GET STARTED IN UG PHYSICS RESEARCH. Below are some suggestions as to how to get information on getting involved in undergraduate research activity within the department of Physics.
    1. One of the major goals of the Society of Physics students SPS is to inform students about physics research for undergraduates at the Ohio State University Dept. of Physics.The organization holds bi-weekely meetings during the Autumn, Winter and Spring Quarters. Typically these meetings have been on Tuesday evenings however watch for the fliers in Smith labs for details.
    2. Joe Gartner (OSU Alumni, Class of SP 2006) has written a "manual" for How to get involved in Undergraduate Research. This manual provides excellent advice from the perspective of a student.
    3. Lindsey Perry perrylin@mps.ohio-state.edu can provide personalized assistance with general questions regarding undergraduate research opportunities as well as research groups that *may* have openings.
