Women in Physics
Welcome to NC State's Women in Physics Group. Our aim is to build a community where we can share expertise and experiences, and thereby gain tools and confidence to help us succeed in our educational and professional goals.
All women in physics, women in related fields, and their supporters are welcome to join us. Whether you are male or female, student or faculty, anybody interested in learning more about issues facing women in physics is part of this community. We are particularly proud to have the largest population of women faculty (8!) of any university in the country.
- Outreach: organize and run hands-on activities with area girls. Please contact Dr. Karen Daniels if you are interested in participating.
- Journal Club: read and discuss a current paper by or about women in physics
- Career Development: workshops to broaden our professional skills, or meet women with interesting careers which use physics
- Networking: meet visiting scientists who are part of the department's colloquium/seminar series
- Social: fund activities such as movies or potlucks, to meet and discuss with members of the community
- Listserv: You can join the email list at lists.ncsu.edu, which is used to announce our approximately monthly events.
- Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics: annual 3-day conferences held throughout the US each January. Apply to attend a 2014 conference here (deadline 1 Nov, 2013). In 2015, the four Triangle Physics departments will host the Southern conference.
