Fields of research at the five institutes of our faculty:
Physics | Nuclear Physics | Atmospheric Physics | Mathematics | Computer Science
The PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence makes unique contributions to the investigation of the deep open questions surrounding the validity of the Standard Model. PRISMA+ scientists search for new particles and forces via a combination of innovative precision experiments performed on the JGU campus and large-scale experiments at international facilities.
The Rhineland-Palatinate Research Initiative funded by the state's Ministry of Science and Health is supporting JGU in the national and international competition for financial support, top-level academics, and promising young researchers. Presently the ministry is funding 13 cutting-edge joint research projects of JGU with up to EUR 9.5 million per year overall. These projects – alongside other institutions such as the Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter (PRISMA+) Cluster of Excellence – are representing JGU's most advanced research fields.
