Students are expected to attend these schools at least twice during their appointment, preferably in the first two years. Postdocs, advanced Master’s students, as well as graduate students from foreign countries are also welcome.

PhD SCHOOLS

CONFERENCES

PhD DAY

The PhD Day is an annual fall event organized by members of the PHD Student Council and is part of the educational program for PhD students. The PhD Day is aimed at exchanging ideas, inviting former PhD students to discuss career options, presenting scientific talks and discussing recent trends in theoretical physics.

SYMPOSIUM TRENDS IN THEORY

Every two years the DRSTP organizes the symposium Trends in Theory.
This symposium is part of the educational program for our PhD students who are encouraged to present a poster on this occasion. The symposium is an opportunity for all DRSTP members to meet and share their ideas on recent developments in theoretical physics.

SEMINAR

NATIONAL SEMINAR THEORETICAL HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS

The DRSTP coordinates the National Seminar Theoretical High-Energy Physics, which takes place several times per year at participation universities.

DELTA ITP

ADVANCED TOPICS IN THEORETICAL PHYSICS

The DRSTP coordinates the MSc. courses “Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics” that were initiated by the DELTA ITP (https://www.d-itp.nl)
