Places to study Physics Beyond The Standard Model.

  1. Feb 2, 2014 #1
    I am a MSc student and I am looking for a place to do my PhD in Physics Beyond the Standard Model (Theoretical side). Any suggestions for a place to apply?. I know that there are the traditional elite places like MIT, Standford, Berkeley and so on but I am looking for other suggestions given that there is a lot of demand to get into those places. Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Assuming that you are aware of this area of study, then you must have read a few papers in various journals on it (or else, how would you know what this area of physics really is?). Have you looked at the affiliations of those authors? There's a very good chance, especially if these are recent (last 3 years) papers that the institutions where the various authors are affiliated have programs in that areas. Then it is just a matter of going to those institutions' websites and look around to verify that they have active research in the subject areas that you want.
