Students are primarily accepted into the Lab one time per year (Spring quarter) or during the summer recruitment effort for transfer and incoming students. 

Students receive most of their research training in September before the official start of Fall quarter. Students must be available to participate in those September trainings in order to be eligible for consideration. Priority is for students who can commit their entire academic year to the Lab. Students are required to particpate in weekly seminars (LALS 187 L/F) and weekly research lab times, with occassional Saturday meetings if needed. We accept students in any major, in all division. We also accept graduate students.
