Up-to-date information concerning lectures

All teaching activities where students have to be present on the campus are stopped with immediate effect. Therefore the IT lectures, among other things, are cancelled for the next weeks. Face-to-face contacts at the UR are now prohibited. CIP pools are closed. See detailed information on the homepage of the university.

In our faculty, 23 professors and their respective workgroups teach and research. We focus on condensed matter with an emphasis on nanostructures (both theoretical and experimental) as well as high-energy physics with an emphasis on lattice quantum chromodynamics. Our scientific reputation is clear in achievements like two Collaborative Research Areas (multi-million Euro grants that fund projects spanning several workgroups) funded by the German Research Foundatiion.

Over 1000 students take part in the various streams offered by the faculty:

  • Bachelor and masters of physics, nanoscience and computational science
  • Teachers of all levels who require a background in physics, as well as bachelor and masters of scientific education, didactics of science and technology

Additionally, we offer a special program in cooperation with Erlangen that allows students to contine direct from their bachelor or masters to pursue doctoral work and in about seven years after their first semester receive a doctoral degree.

Our colleague, Dr. Karoline Bernhard-Höfer, enthuses the audience with her fabulous stage show on the occasion of the spring meeting of the German Physical Society.
