Come to work at ELI Nuclear Physics

Come to work at ELI Nuclear Physics

To be built in Bucharest-Magurele, ELI-NP will be one of the three pillars of ELI – the Extreme Light Infrastructure, along with facilities dedicated to the study of secondary sources (Dolni Brezany, near Prague) and attosecond pulses (Szeged).

Come to work at CERN

At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

The Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP) at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Heidelberg University, a School funded by the German Excellence Initiative, invites applications for
Doctoral Fellowships

in the following areas of modern fundamental physics: (a) Astronomy and Cosmic Physics, (b) Quantum Dynamics and Complex Quantum Systems, (c) Fundamental Interactions and Cosmology, (d) Complex Classical Systems, (e) Mathematical Physics, and (f) Environmental Physics. Thesis research topics cover areas such as experimental and theoretical astrophysics, cosmology, accelerator based particle physics, precision measurements in physics, study of quantum systems – many body as well as small systems, low as well as high temperature physics, atomic, molecular and optical physics, mathematical physics and string theory. In addition, fundamental problems in biophysics, e.g. in materials science aspects of cell biology, and in environmental physics are studied. The HGSFP combines doctoral projects at the forefront of international research in the areas mentioned above with a rich and thorough teaching programme. Further information can be found on the School’s web site:

The branch Astronomy & Cosmic Physics is the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Astronomy and Cosmic Physics at the University of Heidelberg ( Students accepted into the Graduate School will automatically be members of the IMPRS-HD and conversely. Admission to the IMPRS for Precision Tests of Fundamental Symmetries (, to the IMPRS for Quantum
Dynamics in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (, to the RTG Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Model ( or the RTG HighRR (High Resolution and High Rate Detectors in Nuclear and Particle Physics) is also possible. The IMPRS and RTGs offer doctoral positions and fellowships as well, and are combined efforts of Heidelberg University with the Max Planck Institutes
for Astronomy and Nuclear Physics, which form an integral part of the exciting and broad research environment in Heidelberg. Admission to the LGF Schools of the HGSFP is also possible.

Highly qualified and motivated national and international students are invited to apply. Applicants should preferably hold a Master of Science or equivalent degree in physics. Excellent candidates holding a four year bachelor degree and proof of research experience may also be considered. At equal level of qualification, preference will be given to disabled candidates. Female students are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants have to initiate their application registering via a web form available at Applications should be completed by November 20, 2017.
