The Vienna Doctoral Program (Doktoratskolleg) Particles and Interactions (DK-PI) is offering PhDStudentship in experimental and theoretical particle physics. Students from all countries are welcome to apply for such a DK-PI studentship. Successful applicants will receive full financial support on a 12-months-basis for up to 3 years. The application deadline is January 6, 2016.

Study Subject(s): The DK-PI offers research opportunities in the fields of physics and technology of particle detection in high energy particle collisions, precision measurements at low and ultra-low energies to test the standard model, precision experiments with antihydrogen for studies of CPT symmetry and antimatter gravity, experimental studies on non-perturbative QCD with kaon and antiproton beams, the theory of strong and electroweak interactions at low and high energies and at high density or temperature, neutrino and flavor physics, Standard Model and Beyond the Standard Model phenomenology, supersymmetry and string theory, quantum gravity and black hole physics and dark matter physics.

Course Level: Studentship is available for pursuing doctoral program at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the TU Wien, the Institute for Atomic and Subatomic Physics at the TU Wien, the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna and two institutes of the Austrian Academy of Science, the Institute of High Energy Physics, and the Stefan Meyer Institute for Subatomic Physics.

Scholarship Provider: The Vienna Doctoral Program (Doktoratskolleg) Particles and Interactions (DK-PI) supported by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF)

Scholarship can be taken at: Austria

Eligibility: Students from all countries are welcome to apply for such a DK-PI studentship. The DK-PI seeks to increase the percentage of women in physics and therefore specifically invites applications by women. Among equally qualified applicants women will receive preferential consideration.

Scholarship Open for International Students: Students from all countries are welcome to apply for such a DK-PI studentship.

Scholarship Description: The Vienna Doctoral Program (Doktoratskolleg) Particles and Interactions (DK-PI) calls for applications to a graduate program on experimental and theoretical particle physics. The DK-PI offers research opportunities in the fields of physics and technology of particle detection in high energy particle collisions, precision measurements at low and ultra-low energies to test the standard model, precision experiments with antihydrogen for studies of CPT symmetry and antimatter gravity, experimental studies on non-perturbative QCD with kaon and antiproton beams, the theory of strong and electroweak interactions at low and high energies and at high density or temperature, neutrino and flavor physics, Standard Model and Beyond the Standard Model phenomenology, supersymmetry and string theory, quantum gravity and black hole physics and dark matter physics.

Duration of award(s): Studentship is awarded for up to 3 years.

What does it cover? The DK-PI offers doctoral study positions with full financial support on a 12-months-basis for up to 3 years. The modalities of the payment follow the rules laid out by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) (currently 1,996.90 €/month before tax, incl. health benefits). In addition, the doctoral program provides support for
-travel to scientific work shops, schools and conferences
-research stays at various partner institutions around the globe
-soft skill training and language courses.

Selection Criteria: Since the number of places in the DK-PI doctoral program is limited, there is an application and selection procedure for interested students which accounts for their academic and previous scientific achievements, and their expected potential for future research work.

How to Apply: The mode of applying is online. The following application documents and material shall be provided:

  • completed admission form
  • curriculum vitae (CV),
  • list of publications, posters and talks (if applicable),
  • graded study records (if you feel it helps even including high school certificates),
  • expression of interest (why you feel you are the right person to join the DK-PI),
  • information on your English skills (TOEFL or others),
  • preferred date when you would like to start the doctoral studies,
  • two letters of recommendation (including one from your Master's thesis supervisor).

Application Form

Scholarship Application Deadline: The application deadline is January 6, 2016.
