Students currently enrolled at UK, or students living in the Lexington area who are interested in
gaining experience in a research laboratory are encouraged to contact me about opportunities in
computational materials research, computer programming, and computer cluster administration. Both
paid positions and opportunities for independent study for credit are available.
Semester-length research projects for undergraduate credit are available to undergraduates at all levels
and in a range of program areas. For-credit projects must be initiated by contacting me AT LEAST one month prior to the END
of the semester PRECEDING the semester in which credit is sought. A for-credit project will require an
initial research proposal prepared in collaboration with me, as well as a final "project report" prepared
by the student and approved by me. Paid research positions are also available for students seeking part
time employment. Undergraduates participating in both for-credit and paid research should expect that their
research will be included in a refereed publication, and presented at technical conferences. Students should
expect to participate and be named in publications and presentations.
Paid positions for undergraduates (as well as highly-qualified high school students) are also available
during the summer months. Students must arrange their own housing and transportation in Lexington, but
need not be enrolled, or planning to enroll, at UK. Contact me BEFORE March 31st
to discuss possible summer research positions.
