About MSU, FRIB and NSCL

Michigan State University is the nation’s eighth-largest university and has been selected by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to design and establish the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), a future DOE Office of Science national user facility. FRIB is funded through a cooperative agreement with the DOE and will take about a decade to build. The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) is funded under a separate cooperative agreement with the U.S. National Science Foundation and will continue its mission over the next decade.


MSU is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
