Every year some 900 scientists and engineers from all over the globe use the facilities at one of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory’s (NHMFL) three sites, with the primary location being in Tallahassee. First and foremost, the NHMFL exists for these users and the cutting-edge research they conduct here as they seek to expand the boundaries of scientific knowledge.
The Institute of Molecular Biophysics (IMB) is a multi-disciplinary institute consisting of faculty and their research groups who use biophysical, biochemical and computational tools to probe the structure, function and dynamic properties of large molecules and macromolecular assemblies.
The High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster is the core of FSU’s computational infrastructure. With more than 12,490 cores and 708 nodes, the HPC Cluster provides powerful and scalable high performance computing resources for running large, multi-threaded and distributed parallel computations. Access to the HPC is available for all FSU faculty and students/staff with a faculty sponsor.
The High-Performance Materials Institute (HPMI) is a multidisciplinary research institute at Florida State University. HPMI strives to recruit, develop and retain top quality faculty and staff who will develop HPMI into a center of excellence for research and education in the field of advanced materials.
The Biological Science Imaging Resource (BSIR) is a multi-user facility housing instrumentation for light and electron microscopy, including high-resolution scanners and computer workstations to facilitate image processing and image analysis. Users from all departments of FSU are welcome, and outside users can be accommodated in many cases. Training in equipment use, and technical assistance, is provided by BSIR staff.
The Materials Science & Engineering (MS&E) program at FSU is an interdisciplinary graduate program offering M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. It is made up of faculty members from 9 departments across campus who work on a wide variety of materials creating and disseminating fundamental knowledge and developing advanced technologies.
The FSU Physics Department is composed of more than 60 faculty members and over 300 graduate and undergraduate students. Ranked in the top five by the Joint Task Force on Undergraduate Physics Programs and named among the best in the nation for Graduate Physics by U.S. News and World Report, the department focuses on condensed matter, nuclear, high-energy, atomic, bio-, and astrophysics.
The FSU Biology program offers MS and PhD tracks in Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Evolution, and Neuroscience. Our graduate students are supported year round by a combination of Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships and Fellowships.
