Welcome!

This independent research group was financed for 4 years by an ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant, and since 2012 by the MPG. From September 2015 on it is supported within the Heisenberg Programme of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

We perform theoretical and phenomenological research in the fields of neutrino, dark matter, astroparticle, and beyond the Standard Model physics.

ERC Grants

The ERC is the EU funding body for science, and was launched in 2007. ERC Grants aim to support single research leaders ('Principal Investigators') heading a research team to conduct a frontier research project. Two kinds of grants are offered by the ERC, Starting Independent Researcher Grants for young investigators (3 to 8 years after obtaining the Ph.D.) and Advanced Investigators Grants for established senior scientists. The very first ERC call for proposals focused on ERC Starting Grants and closed on 25 April 2007 with 9167 applications having been submitted, only roughly 300 of which were successful.

Heisenberg Programme

The Heisenberg Programme of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) provides outstanding researchers who fulfil the requirements for appointment to a long-term professorship with the opportunity to work on an advanced research topic.
