M.Sc. and Ph.D studies in Physics
The Faculty of Physics maintains a vigorous research program in all the major fields of Physics, including Astrophysics, High Energy Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Biophysics. The Faculty of Physics also continues to be responsible for teaching physics to all Technion students. Taking advantage of being part of Technion, several joint programs with Engineering Faculties were initiated. Today, more that 50% of our undergraduates study for double degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering, Physics and Materials Engineering, Physics and Mathematics and Physics and Computer Science. These programs are among the most lucrative in Israel, attracting some of the best students in the country. Our graduates can be found throughout all the ranks of academia and industry in Israel.
The department is well known not only for its academic achievements and international collaborations, but also for its friendly and open atmosphere. The rich intellectual environment is augmented by frequent visits by well-known scientists from all over the world, many of whom give distinguished lecture series, in all branches of physics. This international exposure, as well as travel to conferences abroad, provides students with an opportunity to expand their intellectual horizons, and helps them to create an essential network of international connections.
The faculty offers a range of research topics, such as:
- Astrophysics, cosmology and general relativity
- Atomic and Molecular Physics
- Complex Systems
- Condensed Matter Physics
- High Energy Physics
- Non-linear Optics
- Quantum Science and Technology
- Plasma Physics
The faculty also offers research positions.
Scholarships are available (subject to Technion regulations).

Open positions for MSc, PhD and postdoctoral students
The Astrophysics & Cosmology group of the Technion invites applications for Postdoctoral positions to start in 2022 (exact date is flexible). Full Technion scholarships are available for successful applicants.
Postdoctoral positions available: We are looking for highly-motivated, international candidates with a PhD in Physics to join our research group. Some of the research topics we are interested in are Cosmology and Dark Matter (V. Desjacques, A. Nusser), X-ray astronomy, and the development of gamma-ray-burst detectors (E. Behar), Supernovae, gravitational waves, stellar dynamics and planet formation (N. Soker, H. Perets), Active Galactic Nuclei (A. Laor). The group is involved in major international experiments including Euclid, XRISM, and ATHENA.
Review of applications will begin on January 2022 and continue until all positions are filled.

Research in Quantum Science and Technology
The center builds on the Technion’s leadership in science and engineering, and a tradition of excellence in Quantum Science going back to Nathan Rosen, known for his work with Albert Einstein on entangled wave motions and the EPR paradox, and Asher Peres, a pioneer of Quantum Teleportation.
The center incorporates world class laboratories in Photonics, Non-linear optics, Quantum dots, Super-conducting qubits and Cold atoms.
Six faculties of science and engineering are involved in the Helen Diller Quantum center: Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

Quantum Projects for Undergraduates
Different labs at Technion are devoted to research in quantum science and technology and the Helen Diller Quantum Center encourages undergraduate students to delve into this growing field. The multidisciplinary world of quantum science and technology encompasses a large range of fascinating areas and today it is at the forefront of the groundbreaking research around the world.
All you need to do is look through the list of proposed projects (here), choose a project which interests you, and schedule a meeting with the project’s head researcher. Following the meeting, if both sides agree to continue, simply contact the project coordinator in your home Faculty to receive a formal approval.
Every year, the Helen Diller Quantum Center will host a competition where the best Final Projects in the field of quantum will receive prizes.
