Carrière / Nikhef


Nikhef - National Institute for Subatomic Physics

Do you have a master’s degree in physics or have you almost graduated? Are you fascinated by dark matter, neutrinos or Higgs boson physics? As a PhD student at Nikhef, you will work to become a professional researcher specialised in particle physics. After completion, you can either continue working as a scientist, or you can start working in a different field.

Why go for a PhD at Nikhef?

Most PhD students choose Nikhef out of curiosity for the research topic. As a PhD student at Nikhef, you have a lot of freedom to plan your own research and development. You are part of international research projects, for example at CERN or in laboratories in Italy, France or Argentina. You can also take courses that are useful for your research or your career in general. You will be supervised, but we also expect a certain degree of independence.
