Math Research & Grants

Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Math & Physical Science


Clockwise from top left: Northern students and professors at the NM-INBRE Conference in Santa Fe, March, 2016, and NM-AMP Conference, Las Cruces, October, 2015.

At Northern, providing undergraduate student research opportunities has become a priority for many of the College’s STEM disciplines. Students can participate in original research projects made possible by funding through the Alliance for Minority Participation (AMP) and the annual NM-INBRE (New Mexico IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence).

These research and grant opportunities allow students to work alongside experienced faculty and fellow students in Mathematics and other STEM programs to present and compete at international conferences, and to prepare for graduate and career opportunities. Scholarships are available.

Please contact Dr David Torres if you wish to participate and you are a student of any STEM discipline at Northern.

Past Projects Include:

  • Parallel Fluid Dynamics Computations of Incompressible and Compressible Flow
  • Chemical Physics of Clusters of Mid-Row Metals and Semiconductors
  • Chemical Physics of Cage Molecules
  • Nuclear Dynamics
  • Computational Astrophysics

Northern offers over 50 bachelor's, associate and certificate programs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math); Nursing and Health Sciences; Liberal Arts and Humanities; Arts, Film & Media; Business Administration; Teacher Education and Technical Trades.
