The College of Science research enterprise is strong and growing, and involves theory, field programs, laboratory work, exploration, and numerical simulation and experimentation.
Our faculty is among world leaders probing the frontiers of modern science, contributing to vital discovery in life sciences, environmental prediction, homeland security, and basic knowledge of our world and universe.
We understand the importance of research to students in all stages of their education. Undergraduate? Graduate? You will find research opportunities here. Grad students and post-doctoral fellows will encounter teaching positions or circumstances to establish research collaborations.
Faculty Research Development Help
There are a number of resources available for faculty in preparing proposals and administering research projects available at the Office of Sponsored Programs.
A listing of our research centers, departmental research links, and laboratories.
The College of Science maintains a small supercomputing center that enables our scientists to prepare codes for execution at national labs or to run small production codes for innovative research.
The Shared Research Instrumentation Facility (SRIF) provides state-of-the-art, high-tech analytical instruments for conducting applied scientific research in the chemical and biochemical fields. SRIF's selection of computer-controlled equipment is of the same high caliber as those found in advanced commercial and governmental laboratories. Use of the equipment is open to students, faculty, and staff at GMU by arrangement with the SRIF lab manager.
The university now maintains a searchable database of faculty research interests at http://www.randed.gmu.edu/faculty/index.cfm. You are welcome to search for faculty experts in whatever field or area you might care to explore.
