The Doctoral Program "Hadrons in Vacuum, in Nuclei and Stars" in the branch of Theoretical Physics of the Institute of Physics at the University of Graz (Austria) advertises

Job opportunities: Positions for Doctoral Students in Theoretical Hadron Physics.

The research projects in this Doctoral Program are led by Profs. R. Alkofer, C. Gattringer, L. Glozman, C.B. Lang (associate researcher), A. Maas, W. Plessas (associate researcher), and W. Schweiger. They focus on issues of quantum chromodynamics in the field of hadronic physics. The Doctoral Program is funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF (Fonds zur Förderung der Wissenschaftlichen Forschung in Österreich). It cooperates with partners worldwide, a half-year research stay at an other instituition is part of the training program. The thesis work has to be done on one of the research projects in the Doctoral Program (see http://physik.uni-graz.at/itp/doktoratskolleg/).
