Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our ultimate goal is to conduct education and research of the highest quality and relevance to make a long-term difference in society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden's most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has over 54,000 students, more than 7,500 employees and a turnover of around SEK 8 billion.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University is one of the largest and strongest environments for both theoretical and experimental research in physics and astronomy. The department is strongly involved in research carried out at national and international research infrastructures for which we also develop and manufacture advanced instruments. The High Energy Physics Division focuses its research on three areas: collider experiments, neutrino experiments and particle theory.

The High Energy Physics Division at Uppsala University has so far conducted research at international facilities at CERN (LHC, FCC) in close collaboration with local theoreticians. An overview of our activities can be found here: https: // www.
