The Center for Biological Physics in collaboration with the department of physics at California State University Dominguez Hills has created an opportunity for CSUDH students to work on original research in soft condensed matter and biological physics in collaboration with UCLA faculty.
A. There are research opportunities to work in theory, simulation, and experiment in the following areas:
1) Physical virology
2) Neural dynamics
3) The mechanics of the cytoskeleton
4) Population dynamics and evolution
5) The mechanics of the cell nucleus
6) Single molecule biophysics
7) The nonlinear dynamics of hearing
Please browse the research pages of our member faculty for other ideas. This program is open to all California State University Dominguez Hills physics students in good standing. In most cases, however, we expect the students to have already begun their upper division physics courses. If you have any questions about your eligibility, please contact Professor Horace Crogman hcrogmancsudh.edu at California State University Dominguez Hills, or cbpdirectorphysics.ucla.edu (Professor Alex Levine) at UCLA.
B. Student Support:
The center for biological physics will provide funds to California State University Dominguez Hills students in the program to help cover the costs of travel and parking at UCLA. The center will also provide some research funds to be used in the UCLA labs.
C. How to apply
Please email Professor Alex Levine at cbpdirectorphysics.ucla.edu stating your name, email, Physics/Math/Computer Science Courses taken and grades received; your research experience and any other information about you that you would like to communicate. Please cc to bruinsmaphysics.ucla.edu.
D. Questions or comments
If you have any questions about how to apply, what research positions are available, how to get to UCLA, or anything else, please email cbpdirectorphysics.ucla.edu (Alex Levine) or call 310-794-4436
