*** The account for IMPRS on Elementary Particle Physics, Max Planck Institute for Physics has expired. ***

The International Max Planck Research School on Elementary Particle Physics (IMPRS EPP) welcomes applications for 

PhD positions in theoretical particle physics

The International Max Planck Research School "Elementary Particle Physics - Theoretical, Experimental and Cosmological Frontiers" is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute for Physics (Werner Heisenberg Institute) and the particle and astroparticle physics groups of the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich and the Technical University Munich. Since April 2005 the school has been offering excellent research opportunities to highly qualified doctoral students. 

 Research fields covered by the school from both an experimental and a theoretical perspective include high energy particle physics, astroparticle physics, and cosmology. The students' own research is supplemented by an accompanying lecture program. Regular seminars, workshops, and other joint events serve to broaden the intellectual horizon, stimulate interaction between IMPRS members, and provide valuable background knowledge on topics beyond the students' own research project. 

Current theory directors and senior staff members include Lasha Berezhiani, Ralph Blumenhagen, Gia Dvali, Thomas Hahn, Gudrun Heinrich, Wolfgang Hollik, Dieter Lüst, Georg Raffelt, Angnis Schmidt-May, Frank Steffen, and Stephan Stieberger. Research directions cover theoretical astrophysics, string theory, particle physics phenomenology and cosmology. This fall, two new directors Johannes Henn ( and Giulia Zanderighi ( will join the institute. Additional funding will be available though the ERC grant of Johannes Henn ‘Novel structures in scattering amplitudes’ (
