We are always interested in attracting new undergraduate and graduate members of the group who are motivated to undertake research in our focus areas.
For potential graduate students, you first have to be enrolled in the Duke Physics Ph.D. program. To apply to the graduate program, request and submit an application for graduate studies from the Duke Graduate School. Additional information specific to the Department can be found on the Departmenal web site or by e-mailing the Assistant to the Physics Director of Graduate Studies, Donna Ruger. Tell her that you are generally interested in the department and that you have a specific interest in Prof. Gauthier's group.
Once you are enrolled at Duke, stop by the labs (go to Room 142) and talk to the current group members, and look over our publications to learn more about our research. Also, set up an appointment to talk to Prof. Gauthier. Usually, new graduate students join the group for an internship during the summer between the first and second years. On occassion, some people have worked with the group during the summer before their first year.
For current Duke undergraduate students, you can stop by the labs (Room 142), or just set up an appointment with Prof. Gauthier. We have had the pleasure of working with several undergraduates over the years and we have several interesting and challenging projects for you to tackle.
