Graduate Association of Physicists (GAP)

Welcome to the Graduate Association of Physicists (GAP) website!  GAP is a new graduate student organization in the School of Physics that aims to provide career development opportunities to physics PhD students, particularly those of you that do not intend on staying in academia after completing your PhD.  Our plans include bringing in speakers who got PhDs in physics and ended up outside of academia and organizing physics  community outreach events. The website (and club itself) is still under construction, but you should be hearing from us soon so stay tuned!
