Bad Honnef Physics School on “Axions and WISPs”

Targeted to PhD students or young postdocs working on, or with an interest in, axion research. The school aims at providing the foundations of this emerging field, or rounding the overview for those already engaged in aspects of axion research, experimentally or in theory.

It will take place from 2 to 7 August 2020, at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, near Bonn and Cologne, Germany. The 200€ fee includes full board and lodging.

Spanish excellence program for recruitment of senior researchers (Ramón y Cajal, Juan de la Cierva) – call now open!

The Spanish ministry offers an recruitment program with both senior postdoctoral positions (Juan de la Cierva) and tenure-track positions (Ramón y Cajal). Those programs are highly competitive, and offer attractive formulas to get established as a researcher. They are mostly based on the excellence of the candidate’s curriculum, research project and host group. The annual call is now open until the 21st January.

The research groups at CAPA continuously seek excellent candidates interested in joining them to support candidacies to these programs. Please contact us if you are interested.

School announcement for PhD students

The second edition of the GGI PhD School on:
“Theoretical Aspects of Astroparticle Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation”
The Galileo Galilei Institute of Theoretical Physics
Arcetri, Florence (Italy)
From March 9 to March 20, 2020
is announced. Details can be found at the page:
Applications can be submitted through the same web page and the deadline is January 11, 2020.
The maximum number of attendance is 40 students.
This School aims at providing robust and detailed introductions on the basic theoretical concepts and main tools to work in the field of Astroparticle Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation. The courses are organized as lectures at the blackboard in the morning and are integrated with hands-on and discussion sessions with an instructor in the afternoon.
The program of the 2020 edition is:
“Inflation and primordial black holes” – Lecturer: Chris Byrnes (University of Sussex)
“Sterile neutrinos in physics, astrophysics, cosmology” – Lecturer: Carlo Giunti (INFN and University of Turin)
“Cosmic rays and multimessenger astronomy” – Lecturer: Markus Ahlers (Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen)
“Particle dark matter: WIMPs, axions and axion-like particles” – Lecturer: Laura Covi (University of Goettingen)
The School will profit of the Galileo Galilei Institute facilities. Each student will have office space to study and discuss, with a lot of opportunities to interact with lecturers.
Accommodation in shared apartments will be provided at the cost of about 300 Euros for the whole period. Scholarships to cover this expense are available upon request. Lunch will be provided during the weekdays on the GGI premises for students and lecturers, at no cost. All the dinners and the lunches during the weekends, instead, are to be paid by the participants.
For any inquiry about the school, please write to
