The Collaborative Research Center 676 (Sonderforschungsbereich 676) at Hamburg University is a research programme at the interface of Particle Physics, String Theory and Cosmology. Significant developments are taking place in each of these fields, and far-reaching scientific results are expected in the course of the next 20 years.

In order to benefit from the fruitful interplay between these different fields, the SFB includes researchers from many different backgrounds, reaching from Particle Physics, over to numerical modeling in Astrophysics, to Mathematics. Eliminating the traditional borders between these subjects has proven to be inspirational and has led to interesting interdisciplinary research projects.

  • Find more information about the scientific programme at the homepages of the various projects.

  • There are currently open positions within the SFB

  • Various lecture courses are offered to graduate students during the first two years of their education.


Upcoming events
  • Summer School: Particles, Strings & Cosmology 2017

    3–28 Jul 2017

    During the Summer School "Particles, Strings & Cosmology" at Universität Hamburg, you will have the opportunity to learn from leading scientists in a unique research environment. You will examine theoretical concepts to deepen your knowledge in the above named fields and discuss advanced research questions with different peer groups. The physics program will be complemented by sessions on German culture and history - topics will be discussed and taught on field trips and during excursions. A language course and extracurricular activities, such as a day trip to Berlin, will complement the program. Join us for knowledge, credits and fun!
