In order to be eligible for doctoral studies at Heidelberg University, applicants should hold a Master of Science or an equivalent degree in Physics. A Master's thesis is expected. Grades obtained for previous degrees must correspond to a B+ or better. Applicants who have not written a Master's thesis may however be accepted if they can prove their ability to carry out independent research projects.

Please contact the HighRR Central Office for further information.

If you are interested in a research training group which is dedicated to research and education in pure detector science you are invited to apply to one of our HighRR positions. HighRR is part of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP) of Heidelberg University, which also handles the admission and application procedure. Please feel free to apply on this WEB-page.

Excellent candidates from China can in the context of this application round also apply for one of the fellowships sponsored by the Heinz Götze Memorial Fellowship-Program (Athenaeum-Stiftung). In case you are interested please send an e-mail to the corresponding HighRR contact in addition to your application through the HGSFP.


First you have to register with a username and password. After logging in you need to choose the branch "Fundamental Interactions and Cosmology" and select “HighRR” as school. Please include a motivational statement to your application describing why the HighRR research and educational program suits your interests best. You can find the admission requirements for acceptance to the doctoral program on this corresponding WEB-page.

We require two letters of recommendation. The links to which those have to be uploaded to are sent to the authors of the letters after your application is completed and submitted. The letters have to reach us before the end of the deadline so please don´t finish your application last minute.
