The Centre for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology (CP3-Origins) and the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense invite applications for up to two PhD positions. We expect one position to be filled in the area of Higgs physics, physics beyond the Standard Model and collider phenomenology, and the other in the area of neutrino phenomenology, flavour physics and model building.
We are looking for outstanding and competitive candidates with a clear potential to excel in high-energy physics.
The Centre for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology is a centre of excellence recently established by the Danish National Research Foundation, dedicated to the understanding of the origins of bright and dark matter in the universe. The members of the centre are highly active in various research fields ranging from formal aspects of quantum field theory, strongly interacting gauge theories, electroweak symmetry breaking and Higgs physics, collider physics, neutrino phenomenology, flavour physics and related model building to astroparticle physics and cosmology. CP3-Origins offers an extremely dynamical and exciting working environment. The centre has active collaborations with leading scientists in Europe, USA, Canada, Japan and Australia.
The appointment will be for a term of three years at very competitive salary and it is expected to start in autumn 2016. Prospective candidates are required to include in the application at least two letters of recommendation. Application deadline: 31 May 2016.
For any further questions please contact Professor Francesco Sannino about either of the positions, Assistant Professor Claudia Hagedorn for the position in neutrino and flavor physics, or Assistant Professor Heidi Rzehak regarding the position in Higgs, BSM and collider physics.
Please see the official SDU announcements regarding Higgs physics, physics beyond the Standard Model and collider phenomenology, and neutrino phenomenology, flavour physics and model building respectively.
