We are accepting PhD students for the 21/22 cycle. Applicants should have research interests that align with those of the lab. The admissions process is holistic; the review committee carefully considers how the candidate’s research, educational, and life experiences mesh with the lab, the PhD program, and the department as a whole. The incoming class size for the entire department varies each year (7 to 15 for the last several years) and depends on several factors. The number of new students in our lab is also variable. All admitted students will be fully funded for 5 years. Students from underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
