Programs Astroparticle PhD

  1. Jan 26, 2010 #1
    Hi guys,

    I'm in the final year of my undergraduate degree and am looking for PhD positions.

    I would really like to take a project related to astroparticle physics (esp. search for WIMPS), and also I would like a position in mainland Europe.

    Just hoped you might be able to give an idea of some universities that would fit these criteria.

    Thanks for any replies,

    The NIKHEF in Amsterdam has a good deal of research on astroparticle physics, although they focus on neutrino physics (through a project called Antaris) and the LHC experiment (through the projct called ATLAS). Furthermore, the institute has quite an international community. http://www.nikhef.nl/en/

    Another project is CRESST, http://www.cresst.de/jobs.php , which is in munich and oxford.

    There's also CDMS, which is in the US.

    You might also want to take a look at projects on neutrino physics, gravitational waves or cosmic rays, which are a bit more "astro".
