Stanford Students

Staff and faculty members of the SLAC Theory Group supervise Stanford graduate students. Introducing the next generation of scientist to cutting edge research is a key priority for us. In the SLAC Theory Group you will experience a rich and diverse research program driving the exploration of fundamental forces of nature. We have strong ties to experimental groups interested in high energy collider physics and particle astrophysics, as well as to theoretical groups at Stanford University and the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology.

You can join our group in two ways:

  1. The SLAC Theory Group and the Stanford Physics Department introduce graduate students to research early in their careers. Students can join members of our group for short term research projects within each quarter of their first year in terms of rotations.

  2. The staff and faculty members of the SLAC Theory Group advise Stanford PhD theses. 

If you are interested in working with us, simply reach out to any of our group members and we are happy to discuss possibilities. We encourage students to meet with every member of our group. An easy way of getting to know us is to join the Stanford physics graduate student orientation events. 

To contribute to the research of the SLAC Theory Group we strongly recommend attending the Quantum Field Theory I course (physics 330). Our Wednesday and Friday seminars provide a great opportunity to hear about recent developments related to our research activities.

A short presentation of the SLAC Theory Group was given on Sept. 17th 2021 within the presentation of physics at SLAC from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.
