From Amy Perry:

Hi!  I have scheduled a photo session for Tuesday, Feb 2, 11 am to 2:00 pm.  Below is the location.

Classroom Bldg. I, Room 202,
The Faculty Multimedia Center
Photographer - Jon Findell

Please forward this note on to the other students that were interested having a portrait taken.   

The photographer is really easy to work with so I suggest that you look at the photo right after he takes it and let him know your personal favorite.  J

Once I have the files from the photographer, I will post on the web, for those currently listed, and send to the student directly.

Thank you!​

RISE Germany offers undergraduate students from North American and British universities the opportunity to complete a summer research internship at top German universities and research institutions.
  • DAAD provides students a monthly stipend for three months to help cover living expenses
  • Host universities and institutes provide housing assistance and match students with Ph.D. student mentors
  • German language is not required and the working language will be in English
RISE stands for Research Internships in Science and Engineering. RISE Germany is funded by the German Federal Office.

Our PhD students from the GRK 2101 ( are offering several topics for internships (available after login).
We would be very grateful if you could inform your students about that opportunity. (Applicants are required to have completed at least two years of an undergraduate degree program by the time of the internship.)

And the online application system for our Master’s degree program is open again. If you have interested students we would be grateful, if you could inform them.
