Interested in doing research with us? We have multiple openings for 2024!

You will work on research projects seeking to develop new materials for energy and sustainability using theory, simulations, and machine learning (learn more about some of our research directions). Our work requires background in programming, especially Python in scientific applications. Experience with atomistic simulations, HPC, or machine learning/deep learning is a plus. In addition to quality in research, our group strives to provide a diverse, inclusive, and respectful environment.


Postdoc candidates: We currently do not have funded positions available. However, if you are applying to your own funding/fellowships, send Daniel an e-mail with your CV and a brief statement of research interests and we can discuss projects.

Current/incoming graduate students: We have openings for graduate students starting in the Summer/Fall 2024. If you have been admitted to the UCLA graduate program and would like to learn more about our group, send Daniel an e-mail with your CV to chat about opportunities of working with us.

Undergraduate students: Undergraduate students interested in doing research with us can send Daniel an e-mail with your CV to discuss opportunities. You can also find information on multiple scholarships and programs for undergraduate research offered by UCLA at the Undergraduate Research Portal.

Prospective students: Students seeking admission to the graduate program at UCLA are encouraged to complete the application directly. Admissions for Fall 2024 will open in the Fall 2023. Some application fee waivers may apply - check the UCLA Admissions FAQs for more information.
