Join us

  • Graduate students

​​We welcome motivated graduate students at UCLA to join the group. Please email us to set up a meeting if you want to know what opportunities we have for students.If you have a strong interest in joining our group while not at UCLA, please apply for the UCLA physics program to become our graduate student, see information on the graduate admissions page. Please make sure to choose the field "Theoretical Nuclear Physics" in your application form, which is our group identification in the department. This is very important in order for us to consider you as a candidate for our group in the admission process and properly review your application.

Our research focuses on QCD theory and phenomenology that span both nuclear and particle physics. You might see a recent summary of the research program given to first-year graduate students at UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy.

  • Undergraduate students within UCLA Physics and Astronomy

​​We have very limited positions for undergraduate students to perform research with us. Please keep in mind the following before you send us your CV for consideration: 

  1. We are doing theoretical work in fundamental nuclear and particle physics. We are not doing experimental work; our research also has nothing to do with nuclear energy.
  2. It is highly desired that you have a basic knowledge of elementary particle physics and a good knowledge of computer programming.
  3. You are highly desired to have a high GPA (3.7+) and be extremely self-motivated.
