Join APG

APG is always looking to hire outstanding graduate students, undergraduates and post-docs enthusiastic about aerospace and plasma physics. See below for details on how to join our group.

Prospective Graduate Students

Students interested in working with APG should apply to the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and indicate an interest in plasma research, and our lab in particular, on your application. We can also support students applying to related departments (e.g., MechE, NSE, Physics, EAPS), but AeroAstro is our home department. We are not able to offer specific advice on your application materials, but you may be able to take advantage of the AeroAstro Graduate Application Assistance Program (GAAP; see here for more information). Prospective students are encouraged to apply for fellowships; please see this list of fellowship resources from MIT.

Current MIT Undergraduate Students

We regularly take students through MIT’s UROP program; if you are interested in pursuing a UROP in our lab, please reach out to any of our graduate students about opportunities!

Prospective Postdoctoral Fellows

Please send Prof. Guerra-Garcia an e-mail that includes your CV, your references’ contact information, and a cover letter describing your research interests and career plans.

Current MIT SM/PhD Students

Prof. Guerra-Garcia teaches course 16.55 during the fall semester focusing on fundamentals of ionized gases. If you are interested in learning more about our work, this class is a good starting point. You may also contact Prof. Guerra-Garcia (via email) or any of the graduate students in our lab to learn more about their work.

For any other questions, please contact the APG Administrative Assistant Andres Forero via e-mail.
