Our Physics and Astronomy majors play an important role in the exciting, cutting-edge research that takes place at Penn. About half of our majors are working in a research lab/group at any given time. Students who are interested in pursuing a PhD are strongly encouraged to get engaged in research before applying to graduate schools. It is never too early or late to get involved!
Students can contact individual faculty members and ask for opportunities and/or visit the CURF site to search for open positions.
