PhD in theoretical/astroparticle/dark matter physics

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am currently applying for Phd's for next year as I am a final year Mphys Physics student. I am only interested in theoretical physics (i know the risks). The problem is that I can't find any theoretical PhDs in particle physics where I would do research in Dark Matter.

My question is whether there exist any PhD thesis where I would do theoretical astroparticle physics and which universities (department groups) offer such positions

Where did you look so far? Did you ask your supervisor, colleagues, ...?

The very first search on the very first place to look for produced multiple results:

I have asked my supervisor, though he is a computational astrophysicist. He showed me inspire and AAS.

The problem with most projects I found is that they are almost entirely numerical/experimental.

I don't mind data analysis, I realise most research is exactly that. I want to do as much theory though as possible.
