Vienna Doctoral Program (Doktoratskolleg) Particles and Interactions, Austria (2015)

The Vienna Doctoral Program (Doktoratskolleg) Particles and Interactions (DK-PI) calls for applications to a graduate program on experimental and theoretical particle physics. The DK-PI offers research opportunities in the fields of

The DK-PI doctoral program is a research, education, and training oriented initiative supported by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF). Its purpose is to provide a high profile international research environment for highly qualified PhD students, coupled with a thorough monitoring and advisory framework, and a broad educational system that includes introductory and specialized physics courses as well as soft skill courses. Its aim is that the students acquire the knowledge needed for becoming competitive participants in the international particle and nuclear physics research community and are able to start their own successful career.

The DK-PI is an excellence initiative of faculty members from five Vienna-based research institutions, the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the TU Wien, the Institute for Atomic and Subatomic Physics at the TU Wien, the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna and two institutes of the Austrian Academy of Science, the Institute of High Energy Physics, and the Stefan Meyer Institute for Subatomic Physics. The DK-PI faculty members which can serve as thesis supervisors are

Associated faculty members:

  • Doz. Dr. Rudolf Frühwirth, Austrian Academy of Sciences (Institute of High Energy Physics),
  • Prof. Jochen Schieck, Austrian Academy of Sciences (Institute of High Energy Physics).


The DK-PI offers doctoral study positions with full financial support on a 12-months-basis for up to 3 years.

The modalities of the payment follow the rules laid out by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) (currently 1,996.90 €/month before tax, incl. health benefits).

In addition, the doctoral program provides support for

Students from all countries are welcome to apply for such a DK-PI studentship.

Since the number of places in the DK-PI doctoral program is limited, there is an application and selection procedure for interested students which accounts for their academic and previous scientific achievements, and their expected potential for future research work. Since DK-PI doctoral students will have to be enrolled at one of the Vienna universities, they have to fulfill the criteria for doctoral studies of the two universities. For this they need in particular a completed Master (or equivalent) degree. In addition they should have very good English language skills.

The DK-PI seeks to increase the percentage of women in physics and therefore specifically invites applications by women. Among equally qualified applicants women will receive preferential consideration.

Necessary documents are listed on the page for application procedure and checklist.



The next application deadline is: January 6, 2016

Previous application deadlines: March 31, 2014; May 31, 2014; August 15, 2014; January 6, 2015; May 31, 2015
