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

     PhD positions in experimental and 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.


Please submit your application through the application form at Otherwise, your application cannot be considered. On this web page, you will find more detailed information on the IMPRS EPP and the requirements.


Application Deadline: January 27th, 2018


Salary and benefits are based on the German public service pay scale (TVöD Bund). The contract is initially limited to three years. The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the participation of women wherever they are underrepresented. The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply.
