Are you interested in writing a thesis in the field of theoretical particle physics? We offer topics for bachelor, master and PhD theses on current research questions at any time. Since topics are often found dynamically together with the students, it is recommended to contact us personally. An overview of the theses completed in our group so far can be found below.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of a thesis, please contact us. We are looking forward to a personal conversation with you.
