The D-ITP unites the existing institutes for theoretical physics at the University of Amsterdam, Leiden University, and Utrecht University. In 2013, the consortium has been awarded 18.3 million euros from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Every year the D-ITP has a significant number of openings for postdoctoral and PhD positions. Furthermore a nation-wide cosmology research program of the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) has recently been funded under the name "Observing the big bang: the quantum universe and its imprint on the sky". Ten additional postdoc and PhD positions in Theoretical Cosmology are being filled. The program involves researchers from five Dutch institutions (A. Achucarro (PI), A. Boyarsky and K. Schalm from Leiden University, B. Freivogel and J.P. van der Schaar from Amsterdam University, E. Pajer and T. Prokopec from Utrecht University, D. Roest from Groningen University and M. Postma from Nikhef). More recent hires are D. Baumann (Amsterdam University) and A. Silvestri (Leiden University).

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Utrecht University has a strong theoretical physics group, whose current faculty member in high energy physics are Bernard de Wit (Nikhef/UU), Thomas Grimm, Umut Gursoy, Eric Laenen (adjunct professor), Enrico Pajer, Tomislav Prokopec, Gerard ít Hooft and Stefan Vandoren.
