Research opportunities for undergraduates

We are actively looking for one or more motivated undergraduate students to carry out research in our group. Our state-of-the-art cosmological simulations are particularly well suited for important contributions by undergraduate researchers and enable a variety of projects.

Interested students should contact Claude-André Faucher-Giguère by email (; x=cgiguere). Please include a CV, summary of interests and experience, and (if possible) a copy of your transcript. Candidates with a strong computational background are especially encouraged to apply.

Funding for undergraduate research is available through the Office for Undergraduate Research at Northwestern and the Weinberg College of Arts & Science.

U.S. citizens enrolled in any undergraduate program may also be funded by the Illinois Space Grant College Summer Research Program.

Note that many funding opportunities have early deadlines for application, so interested candidates should be in touch well in advance.
