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 DFG Research Training Group Strong and Weak Interactions - from Hadrons to Dark Matter at the University of Muenster, Germany, invites applications for various

PhD Positions

(salary level TV-L E13, 75 %)

These fixed-term positions will start on October 1st, 2018 or later and are available for up to three years.

The structure of the DFG-funded Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg) is based on joint education and research of theorists and experimentalists in nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics as well as computer scientists and mathematicians (

In strong interactions we aim at precision in experiments and theoretical predictions. Examples are the transition from the quark gluon plasma into bound hadrons, the parton distributions in cold nuclear matter or properties of mesons. In weak interactions we investigate more speculative questions beyond the Standard Model, especially those related to dark matter and neutrinos.

Applicants with a very good master's degree or diploma in physics are expected to submit the usual application documents (curriculum vitae, copies of transcripts and certificates) as well as two letters of reference and a letter explaining their motivation to join our Research Training Group and their research interests.

The University of Muenster is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the proportion of women academics. Consequently, we actively encourage applications by women. Female candidates with equivalent qualifications and academic achievements will be preferentially considered within the framework of the legal possibilities. We also welcome applications from candidates with severe disabilities. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be preferentially considered.

Applications should be sent by May 18th, 2018 to the spokesperson of the Research Training Group preferentially by email:
