Gruppenbild Urheberrecht: © Bernd Jantzen

Deadline 30 June 2022

Prof. M. Czakon and Prof. M. Worek invite applications for Ph.D. positions in theoretical particle physics (hep-ph) with a starting date in the fall of 2022. The PhD projects concern precision Standard Model predictions for the LHC, perturbative QCD, Top quark and Higgs boson physics. The recipient will be hosted by the Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany.

Candidates should submit their applications through Academic Jobs Online following this link where detailed information about the application process can be found.

We explicitly encourage applications from qualified women. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference if equally qualified. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2022.

More information about the Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology, RWTH Aachen University can be found here.

The PhD positions are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The successful candidates will be associated with the Research Training Group: Physics of the Heaviest Particles at the LHC and/or Transregional Collaborative Research Centre: P3H - Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs Discovery.

Your application should be sent as a single pdf-file. Please enclose in your application:

  • a cover letter stating your interests and motivation,
  • a research statement,
  • your curriculum vitae,
  • your degree certificates and study transcripts with a description of the grading scheme,
  • an abstract (maximum 1/2 page) of your diploma or masters thesis,
  • a list of your publications, if available.

You should also arrange for 2 letters of recommendation to be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited for a job interview. The job interview will include:

  • an oral scientific presentation (20 minutes) given by you on a subject of your choice,
  • an interview to gain a deeper understanding of your knowledge and motivation.
