We study the noise spectra of a many-level quantum dot coupled to two electron reservoirs, when interactions are taken into account only on the dot within the Hartree-Fock approximation. The dependence of the noise spectra on the interaction strength, the coupling to the leads, and the chemical potential are derived. For zero bias and zero temperature, we find that as a function of the (external) frequency, the noise exhibits steps and dips at frequencies reflecting the internal structure of the energy levels on the dot. Modifications due to a finite bias and finite temperatures are investigated for a noninteracting two-level dot. Possible relations to experiments are pointed out.
