Graduate Research

The Department of Physics at Northeastern University provides opportunities for graduate students to engage in research and scholarship under the direction of an internationally recognized faculty. Students have a choice of programs in advanced theoretical or experimental research in condensed matter physics, biological physics, medical physics, or elementary and particle physics. Thesis research can also be undertaken in interdisciplinary areas such as materials physics, chemical physics, or applied engineering physics.

For information about specific research groups, see the Department of Physics Research Page.

The College of Science supports several fellowships and awards for Summer Research Fellowships, Dissertation Completion Fellowships, Lawrence Awards, and more.

Outside of the College, there are several other opportunities for fellowships through the National Science Foundation, the Hertz Fellowship Application, the Ford Foundation Fellowship Program, and many more.
