PhD position in Theoretical Astroparticle Physics

The Emmy Noether Junior Research Group of Dr. Julia Harz within the Theoretical High-Energy Particle Physics Group at the Physics Department of the Technical University Munich (TUM) welcomes applications for a PhD position.

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of Europe’s top universities and is committed to excellence in research and teaching. It has one of the strongest departments on elementary particle physics in Germany and comprises many experts in theory and experiment ( The vicinity of the TUM Institute for Advanced Study, the Max-Planck Institutes for Physics, and for Astrophysics, and in particular of the cluster of excellence "ORIGINS" and the Munich Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics (MIAPP), provides a stimulating environment for education and research.

At the time of the start of the advertised Ph.D. project, the Emmy Noether Junior Research Group “​​​​​​Baryogenesis, Dark Matter and Neutrinos: Comprehensive analyses and accurate methods in particle cosmology” of Dr. Julia Harz will be formed by a strong, international and motivated team of two PostDocs and a second PhD student, as well as Master and Bachelor students. The research interests of the group lie in dark matter physics, baryogenesis / leptogenesis and neutrino physics.

The topic of the PhD project will mainly focus on dark matter physics with emphasis on freeze-in scenarios and  / or non-perturbative effects in the context of dark matter observables. Possible thematic connections to neutrino physics and baryogenesis are welcome.

The PhD candidate will be part of the TUM graduate school. Travel funds will allow the PhD student to participate in summer schools and conferences. The starting date is flexible but should lie between April and October 2020.

The application documents should include a letter of motivation (including the prospective starting date), a CV (including a full list of courses attended in or close to the field of specialization), the latest transcripts of records of the Bachelor and Master Studies and a pdf of the Master thesis (or abstract if not yet available). In addition, the applicant should arrange at least two letters of recommendation.

All application documents (including the reference letters) should be submitted via Academic Jobs Online before February 15th 2020 (later applications will be considered until the position is filled).

Informal inquiries can be addressed directly to
