This is a new collaborative effort by four Texas-based universities that will run an undergraduate traineeship project under the guidelines of the Department of Energy TBD-NP (Research Traineeships to Broaden and Diversify the Nuclear Physics community) program. The collaboration consists of the University of Houston (UH), University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV), University of Texas – El Paso (UTEP) and Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU).
The Physics Department Summer Lecture series introduces the latest research in nuclear and particle physics being pursued at Brookhaven Lab at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduate STEM students and beginning graduate students. The series will include lectures on the Standard Model of particle physics, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), current and future nuclear and particle physics experiments and introductory cosmology. The lectures will cover both theoretical concepts as well as detector technologies and the latest experimental and computational techniques.
