About

The Heidelberg Graduate School for Physics from Heidelberg University offers a doctoral programme for students that culminates in the degree "Dr. rer. nat.". In order to enter this programme, the usual requirement is that students must have obtained the minimum of a Master´s degree in Physics or equivalent.

Overview

Key Features

Research towards the degree Dr. rer. nat. can be performed in one of several fields, offered at the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Research encompasses core areas of fundamental physics as well as inter­disciplinary border areas. In the core areas, research focuses on elementary particle physics, the structure and evolution of the universe, and the properties of complex classical and quantum systems. The interdisciplinary border areas include environmental physics, bio- and medical physics as well as technical computer science.

Doctoral students of the Heidelberg Graduate School for Physics from Heidelberg University can concurrently be admitted to one of the topical graduate schools in physics located in Heidelberg. (However, students of these schools must be admitted to the HGSFP).

These schools provide a focused programme in a specific research area, ranging from detector specialization through to specialization in quantum control and astronomy.

Doctoral students in medical physics can also be members of two schools simultaneously.
