College of Charleston students who are interested in participating in this research group are encouraged to contact Linda Jones for more information. Research may be conducted by Physics majors as well as [serious and highly motivated] non-Physics majors. Opportunities are available for research in the summer and during the academic year. The Physics Department offers one or two student stipends for the summer. Minority students interested in being paid to conduct research should talk to Prof. Christine Moore about SCAMP funding for an internship during the academic year or a stipend during the summer.
