LHC Theory Initiative - Welcome


What is the LHC-TI?

The LHC Theory Initiative is a fellowship program intended to help the US meet the theoretical needs of the LHC by providing graduate student and postdoctoral fellowships to promising young theorists working on LHC-related physics. The program was created by the U.S. particle theory community in anticipation of the data to come from the Large Hadron Collider.


2014 LHC-TI postdoc and graduate Fellowships announced.

2012 LHC-TI Fellowships awarded.

George Sterman of Stony Brook University replaces Ulrich Baur as LHC-TI co-PI.
