PostDoc positions

The DESY Theory Group in Hamburg announces a Fellowship Program for young scientists in theoretical particle physics. The fellowships normally start in October 2018 and are awarded for two years. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the time of appointment.

The research programme of the group includes collider phenomenology (in particular Higgs physics, physics beyond the Standard Model, flavour physics, QCD, Monte Carlo generators), particle cosmology, axions and other nonstandard light particles, string theory and mathematical physics (in particular gauge-string dualities, conformal field theories and integrable models).

Applications can be submitted via this web interface and should include a statement of research interests, CV, list of publications, as well as the names of three referees who will be asked to send letters of recommendation. In case of technical problems, you may contact

The deadline for applications is 01 December, 2017.

Salary and benefits are commensurate with those of public service organisations in Germany. Classification is based upon qualifications and assigned duties. DESY operates flexible work schemes.
