The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics, IGFAE, at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, invites expressions of interest for the PhD Program on Particle and Nuclear Physics. This is a broad program that spans all subjects of interest of the Institute, including High Energy experimental and theoretical physics, Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology and Nuclear Physics and applications. See:

The official deadline for applications at the University of Santiago de Compostela will be during the first half of September 2021. Please, send your expression of interest through Academic Jobs online not later than July 15th, including:

·         CV

·         Statement of Research Interest

·         Motivation Letter

·         Transcript of records


The admission follow the official rules of the University of Santiago de Compostela, in particular, a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Physics or related areas are required, please consult full details in

Secondments in different research centres including CERN and GSI/FAIR, a mentoring program, and formation courses and schools are envisaged. Help for the bureaucratic formalities and a welcome pack are available. Former PhD students have had successful careers as postdocs in top research centres (CERN, GSI, EPFL, Nikhef, Imperial College, BNL, JLab…) or outside academia.


The scientific research of the Institute is organized around three areas that are the basis for the strategic planning: The Standard Model to the Limits, Cosmic Particles and Fundamental Physics, and Nuclear Physics from the Lab to improve people’s health.  A transversal line has been created recently to discuss the strategy for new opportunities in the field of international facilities. In addition, IGFAE activity is divided into an experimental and a theory section.

IGFAE financial support is available for a limited number of applicants. PhD students will also receive administrative and scientific support to apply to EU, national and regional grants.

IGFAE offers training in soft skills is to enhance future employability and career success of our researchers including technology transfer, entrepreneurship, dissemination, and equity/diversity perspective.

IGFAE is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its personnel and particularly welcomes applications from women, minorities, and persons with disabilities. We offer flexible working schedule to reconcile a work and family life.
