Position Description:    

*** the listing date or deadline for this position has passed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The particle and nuclear theory group at the Physics Department of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) invites applications for a Ph. D. position.

We seek candidates with a good background in Quantum Field Theory and Particle theory. Knowledge of Effective Quantum Field Theories would be highly evaluated but it is not strictly requested.

The particle and nuclear theory group is lead by Prof. N. Brambilla and Prof. A. Vairo. The interests of the group span over a wide range of topics in particle physics phenomenology and Effective Quantum Field Theories (quarkonium, heavy quarks, X Y Z exotics, precise calculation of SM parameters, strongly interacting systems), in physics of the early Universe (dark matter, leptogenesis) and in physics of heavy ion collisions (quarkonium and jet suppression) and nonequilibrium physics. We deal both with perturbative techniques (high order loop calculations) and nonperturbative methods (Lattice QCD).

For more information on the group research activity see the web page and

The research activity will be performed also inside the Excellence Cluster group "Origins" ( established in Munich, the Quarkonium Working Group (, the DFG SFB "Symmetries and Emergences of Structure in QCD", in collaboration with Bonn University and Chinese research institutions, and the Focus Group on "Effective Field theories and Lattice" at the Institute of Advanced Studies of the TUM.

The studentship is available in 2022, the starting time can be negotiated. Candidates for the PhD position are expected to have a master/diploma (or equivalent) degree in one of the following fields: theoretical particle physics, high energy physics, hadron and nuclear physics.

Applications should include a CV, a copy of the master/diploma and bachelor certificates with scores, a brief summary of previous research activities, and a recommendation letter.

Review of applications will start immediately and will proceed until the position has been filled.
