Theoretical Physics at LBNL
The Theoretical Physics group consists of
A complete directory is also available.
The group's efforts can be divided into two major categories: particle
theory and string theory.
- Particle theory research is concerned with the standard model and possible deviations from, and extensions to, it. The group has worked on electroweak symmetry breaking, supersymmetry, grand unification,
perturbative QCD, cosmology, and methods to test the standard model in current and future experiments.
- The string theory group works on string theory, quantum gravity, conformal field theory, quantum groups, topological field theory and the foundations of quantum mechanics.
The group hosts two main seminars:
There are also two informal seminars:
- String Seminars are at 3:40pm on Tuesdays in Room 402 in Old LeConte on Campus.
- Particle Seminars are at 2:00 pm on Wednesdays in Building 50A, Room 5132 or Building 50, Room 5026 at LBNL.
- 4D Seminars are informal talks, at 2:30pm on Mondays at 2:30 in Room 402 in Old LeConte on Campus.
- String Group Meetings are informal meetings at 3:40 pm on Wednesdays in Room 402 in Old LeConte on Campus.

The LBNL Theory Group and the Center for Theoretical Physics at UC
Berkeley operate as a single group, with a research program including
particle physics, cosmology, and string theory.
The Theory Group has no current openings.
LBNL is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to
the development of a diverse workforce.
