## Ph.D. Applications

Please refer to the DAMTP PhD Opportunities webpage.

*High Energy Particle Physics*

*This is one of two large groups in theoretical physics in DAMTP, the other being the General Relativity and Cosmology group. Advances on several fronts have led to a breakdown of the historical divisions between the two groups and several staff members are members of both. The group is active in Particle Physics Phenomenology, Quantum Field Theory, String Theory, and Lattice Field Theory.*
