JINA-CEE's Undergraduate Research Assistants (JURA) Program

JINA-CEE offers research opportunities for undergraduates enrolled at a JINA-CEE university. Students work on various research projects under the supervision of JINA-CEE faculty or postdocs and are integrated in the respective research groups. In some cases students are paid by the hour on flexible schedules, also during the semester, with about 10-20 hours/week spent in the lab, or may be eligible to earn directed study credits. Previous projects include: Building experimental equipment, analysis of data, astrophysical simulations, and development of web-based and graphical databases.

If you are a major in physics or a related field such as chemistry or computer science, have a strong interest in nuclear astrophysics, and are interested in participating in this program, contact the responsible JINA-CEE investigator at your university listed below. If your institution is not listed below, there is no formal program in place. However, you may be able to work something out by contacting JINA-CEE faculty at your institution.
