If you are interested in joining the TAPIR group, and are already at Caltech, come see us. If you are not employed by Caltech, here is how to apply for positions at various levels:
- Graduate Students (typically 3/yr join). About 50% of TAPIR students enter the Physics graduate program. About 30% of TAPIR students enter the Astronomy graduate program (which has separate admissions and requirements from Physics). About 20% enter from outside the division: Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics, etc. All graduate students receive full financial support, as explained here.
- Undergraduate Students. See also financial aid. In Theoretical Astrophysics, we often have SURF summer research opportunities (particularly for upper-level students who have learned more theoretical physics), and work-study opportunities.
