Members of the Institute participate in the teaching of the bachelor and master courses at the KU Leuven. More information on the structure of the Master courses for students intending to specialize in Theoretical Physics can be found here.
In the course Capita Selecta Theoretical Physics (from the Master program) different topics of modern theoretical physics are treated. More information on the topics can be found on this page.
PhD and Post-doc
- There are a number of PhD and post-doc positions available every year. If you are interested you can find more information here.
- The IITS (Institute for Intensive Theoretical Studies) course is an annual course about some specialized topic in Theoretical Physics, at the level of beginning PhD students. For more details see IITS.
A list of our publications is available in Lirias, the document repository to archive the KU Leuven research output in a digital way.
