Graduate Student Clubs


Young Emory Physicists

If you are interested in becoming involved with the Young Emory Physicists please contact one of the officers to introduce yourself. We are a graduate student organization located in the physics department.

YEP's purpose:

  • To foster a sense of community and promote interaction among the Emory physics department graduate students and all other Emory students interested in physics.
  • To coordinate the advocacy of both non-academic and academic concerns of physics graduate students.
  • Provide services and information to physics graduate students to assist in their graduate careers.
  • Provide a forum in which graduate students interested in physics can discuss the field.
  • To promote the Emory physics graduate program to prospective students.

Journal Clubs

The Molecular Biophysics Journal Club

The Molecular Biophysics Journal Club meets weekly to discuss current and classic research topics in the area of Molecular Biophysics. Each week a member presents a journal article that is discussed by the group. All students, faculty, and research staff with an interest in biophysics are welcome to attend. Meetings are held Wednesdays at 12:00 in room N215. Bring a lunch if you wish. For more information, please contact Professor Kurt Warncke.

The Soft Condensed Matter Journal Club

The Soft Condensed Matter Journal Club meets weekly throughout the entire year. Topics vary widely and are influenced by the current interests of those in the journal club. Journal club participants include both experimental and theory students; anybody is welcome to join.  For more information, please contact Professor Connie Roth.

The Theoretical Physics Journal Club

The Theoretical Physics Journal Club meets weekly to discuss research topics in area of theoretical, statistical & computational physics. Graduate students and faculty members of the computational/statistical physics groups select and discuss a journal article every week. The club is open to anyone having interest in theoretical/statistical physics.  For more information, please contact Professor Stefan Boettcher.
