First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to look at NICEST webpage. We appreciate your interest in our research and in the activities of our group.
Prospective Graduate Students:
Decisions regarding openings for new graduate assistants, acceptance, and funding are made in the late fall for spring admission and in the late spring for fall admission. The graduate committee decides the requirements for admission. Direct solicitations to faculty members for admission are not accommodated. That said, we are interested in working with students that are interested in earning a Ph.D. We look for students that write thoughtful personal statements that speak to the agenda of the NICEST lab, that have interesting backgrounds and experiences, that receive good recommendations, and possess good grades (and acceptable GRE).
Previous research experiences are very attractive and publications are impressive if you have them.
Prospective Undergraduate Researchers:
Though most research within NICEST is performed by graduate research assistants, there are some opportunities for undergraduate research. These vary by semester and faculty member.
