If you are interested in joining the VAST lab for PhD study, you are encouraged to go through the list of “current projects” in detail and identify 1-2 projects that match your interest best. You are welcome to reach out to Prof. Cong to indicate your interest, highlight your education and research background/accomplishments, and relay them to the projects you selected. The lab typically recruits 1-2 new PhD students each year. It’s important that you prepare a strong application package.

As a lab we are always looking to increase our group's diversity and inclusion. If you are a member of a minority group or gender and have interest in the research of our lab, you are especially encouraged to email to Prof. Cong to indicate your interest.
