Research at the YITP

The research interests at the YITP are very broad, and cover both formal theory, phenomenology, cosmology, and quantum information. Moreover, the close connections to the Department of Physics and Astonomy, the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics , and Brookhaven National Laboratory make the YITP an exciting place to be. If you are interested in joining the YITP as a PhD student, you should apply to the Physics & Astronomy graduate program at Stony Brook University.
