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 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).

The application deadline for fellowships starting in the autumn of 2018 will be in early December 2017. Information about the application procedure shall be posted on this website in due time.

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. Handicapped persons will be given preference to other equally qualified applicants. DESY is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and encourages applications from women. There is a bilingual Kindergarten on the DESY site.
