From Feb 10-13, FIU is hosting an important nuclear physics conference, "Next generation nuclear physics with JLab12 and EIC" , organized by physics professor Dr. Misak Sargsian and others.
Dr. Bernard S. Gerstman, Professor of Theoretical and Computational Biophysics and Physics Department Chair at Florida International University has just published a book entitled "Research on the Physics of Cancer: A Global Perspective."
Physics students have earned the opportunity to participate in hands-on research, competitive summer internships and personal mentorship that will train them to be the next generation of scientists and engineers in charge of environmental restoration in the United States.
Although the recent FIU astrophysical event have concluded, you can still relive it -- the videos are online!
FIU astronomers now have access to a remotely operable telescope at one of the best observing sites for optical astronomy in the world: the Jacobus Kapteyn telescope (JKT) in the Canary Islands.
Dr. Angela Laird is an Associate Professor of Physics at Florida International University and the director of FIU’s Neuroinformatics and Brain Connectivity Laboratory. She is the featured APS woman physicist of the month!!!!
In addition, the learning assistant program, which has proven vital for Mastery Math, was pioneered by the faculty in the STEM Transformation Institute. It was first implemented in Physics as a teacher preparation program during a time when enrollment numbers were steadily dropping for majors. Today, the peer-mentoring program is being implemented at a much greater scale. Along with physics and math, FIU has deployed learning assistants in chemistry, earth sciences and biological sciences.
The Biomolecular Sciences Institute (BSI) at Florida International University invites applications to fill a full-time tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Physics starting in August 2016.
President Obama is hosting the "White House Astronomy Night" and has asked universities, planetariums and science centers to host events that same night, October 19. Here at FIU, there will be SAC telescopes out to show visitors the vistas of the night sky (weather permitting). There will also be music and refreshments, tours of the observatory, and a talk by Dr. Webb.
FIU, in collaboration with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), hosted the association’s 2015 Youth Leadership Development Forum in October. Nearly 500 high school students representing nine Miami-Dade County Public Schools were in attendance.
