Theoretical High Energy Particle Physics Group

The Cambridge HEP theory group is a large research group, primarily in DAMTP. We have some members in common with the Relativity and Gravitation group and with the Cavendish HEP Theory Group, reflecting strong research links. Prof. Nick Dorey is head of the group and Ms Amanda Stagg, as HEP group secretary, is the first point of contact.

Research Activities

Ph.D. Applications

Please refer to the DAMTP PhD Opportunities webpage.

Job Vacancies

Open post-doctoral research positions in the group will be advertised here.
