Faculty

More than 20 faculty members from participating MSU academic programs and over 30 additional PhD accelerator scientists and engineers will mentor AS&E program participants. All faculty members have extensive research, mentoring, and teaching experience.

FRIB/NSCL also has a large staff of non-PhD engineers, operators, and technicians who will further enhance the traineeship. This diversity of academic faculty and the extensive scientific and technical staff results in many opportunities for graduate student training in AS&E at MSU.

Ready to apply or have questions? Please apply and inquire through our NSCL graduate studies page at nscl.msu.edu/grad

Support for several kinds of graduate fellowships in AS&E is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) Office of High Energy Physics, DOE-SC Office of Nuclear Physics, and the National Science Foundation.
