About University of California, Davis Department of Physics & Astronomy
The University of California, Davis (UC Davis) Department of Physics & Astronomy provides a dynamic and diverse environment for the training of both graduate and undergraduates students.
Our three core research areas of condensed matter, high energy physics and cosmology, together with smaller programs in nuclear physics, high energy astrophysics, complexity sciences, and physics education, provide exciting opportunities for motivated students who are interested in cutting-edge research. Our undergraduates go on to top graduate schools and desirable positions in industry. Our graduate students go on to prestigious postdoctoral and faculty positions, become laboratory scientists, or move to excellent industry placements.
The vitality of our research programs stems in part from out rapid recent growth; 24 of our 46 faculty have been hired since year 2000. Indeed, our cosmology group, now one of the leading centers in the world for cosmology, has grown in the past seven years from just one member to ten.
