Program Description:    

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/finite temperature QCD/Early Universe would be welcome.

The particle and nuclear theory group is lead by Prof. N. Brambilla. 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 to be performed by the Ph. D. selected applicant will regard the physics of early universe, dark matter, heavy Majorana neutrinos/Leptogenesis, the study of nonequilibrium evolution of heavy pairs in the early universe on the basis of effective field theories and open quantum systems and the solution of the related Linblad equations.

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 position can start in Fall 2022 and must start in any case by January 2023. Contact if you want to discuss the starting date.

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.
