We prove the existence of stationary states for nonlinear Dirac equations of the form:
$$i\gamma ^\mu \partial _\mu \psi - m\psi + F(\bar \psi \psi )\psi = 0.$$
We seek solutions which are separable in spherical coordinates and we use a shooting method for solving the associated problem of ordinary differential equations.
