We carry out world-leading research in some of the most exciting areas of theoretical physics including string theory, quantum field theory, cosmology, quantum foundations, and gravity. We have a dynamic PhD programme and we offer a one year MSc Course which provides a focussed training to begin research at a PhD level.
PhD in theoretical physics. Key responsibilities Applications are invited for a PhD position in theoretical cosmology at Leiden University.. After a positive evaluation of the progress of the thesis, personal capabilities and compatibility the appointment will be extended by a further three years.
Theoretical physics is a field devoted to modeling physical phenomena, and leaves the rocket science to experimental physicists. Theoretical physicists build on the works of scientists like.

Theoretical Physics (45 ECTS). CAREER PROSPECTS This programme is an excellent preparation for a national or international career in physics. About 70% of the graduates continue to conduct PhD research at Utrecht University or at institutions elsewhere in the world. Theoretical Physics offers a solid basis for many other interesting jobs.
Programme objective The MSc programme in Theoretical Physics provides students with a broad overview of methods and topics in theoretical physics and teaches them to work independently in a specific sub-discipline of the field. Students also learn to present and discuss their work both orally and in writing, and to take a critical attitude towards the existing literature.
Curriculum Theoretical Physics. Courses can be followed at other Dutch universities or even abroad.The 15 EC of the secondary-elective (or the) credits can be spent on courses followed at other universities, but you will typically require permission from the Exam Committee and support form the program coordinator, who you should talk to first. In certain, rare cases, additional credits may be.
The key tenets of our Mathematical and Theoretical Physics educational program are compulsory scientific seminars (including student seminars) and a strong scientific community. Students study tailored, individual courses approved by their supervisors, who determine the range of selected courses depending on the specific area of the student’s scientific study.
