The Cluster of Excellence “Quantum Universe” performs research to understand mass and gravity at the interface between quantum physics and cosmology. The research team includes leading scientists from mathematics, particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology at Universität Hamburg and DESY.
We invite applications for a PhD position on the topic of deep learning in particle- and astrophysics. Possible topics include:
development of unsupervised machine learning methods for fundamental physics
research into foundational models for transfer learning
development of machine learning tools for radio interferometry
Doctoral research associates will become members of the Quantum Universe Research School (QURS), which provides academic and soft skills training, as well as career planning support. In addition, they will receive individual budgets to facilitate the attendance of summer schools and conferences, and to support other educational measures. Additional travel money for project-specific duties will be provided by the hosting research groups.
Requirements: A university degree in a relevant field.
Familiarity with basics of astrophysics and particle physics, ideally in the form of an undergraduate thesis project. Experience in coding and in the basics of machine learning.
