Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT)

Recently, the department received a 5-year grant from the National Science Foundation IGERT program which offers a new paradigm for interdisciplinary training of PhD students in the application of neutron scattering techniques to condensed matter science and engineering. Annual stipends are $30,000 plus tuition and fees, over a period of 2 years.

For further information, please see, or contact Professor Haskell Taub ( Please indicate in your application (either in a cover letter, or in the statement of interest) if you wish to be considered for an IGERT traineeship. To be eligible, you must be a US citizen and you must have taken the GRE physics subject test.
