Perform forefront research in fundamental physics with a doctorate in physics.

Areas of research include, but are not restricted to, theoretical and experimental investigations in:

  • Atomic and molecular physics
  • Computational physics
  • High-energy physics
  • Low-temperature/condensed matter physics
  • Materials science
  • Nuclear physics
  • Quantum optics

The research is supported by state-of-the-art experimental equipment. You'll have access to high-performance computing, a variable-energy cyclotron, and many shared campus facilities.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy recommends that all graduate students serve as teaching assistants for at least two semesters.
