There are already four scientists at DFT who have been incorporated under ATCAM. Moreover, 13 out of the current DFT staff are or have been Ramón y Cajal fellows.

DFT drives a Master Degree in Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, and actively participates in a second one in Nuclear Physics, see

Moreover, DFT  is responsible for two PhD Programmes in Theorecal Physics and Astrophysics, respectively.

Two research Institutes are associated to DFT:

** Instituto de Fisica Teorica, IFT (CSIC-UAM),
** Centro de Investigacion Avanzada en Fisica Fundamental, CIAFF (UAM),

In order to be apply to the call via the DFT at UAM, applicants should express their interest to Anette Knebe (, our local research manager who can also help with the call. The expression of interest needs to be received not later than July 5th and should contain the following:
