PhD Scholarship in Fundamental Interactions

September 13, 2016

Deadline: October 6, 20168980186327_647278607b_b

One PhD student position is available in one of the following fields of theoretical physics: renormalisation group equations, (Supersymmetric) CFTs, phase diagram of theories of fundamental interactions, higher order computations, numerical methods for fundamental interactions or effective field theories at the Centre for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology, and the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. We are looking for outstanding and highly competitive candidates with a demonstrated potential to excel in research.

The prospective candidate will work in the group of Francesco Sannino that already counts three PhD students, three postdocs and two assistant professors founded by several national and intra-nationals research agencies. The candidate will also benefit from several extensive workshops, schools, the immense research network as well as an already established vigorous visitor programme covering all the aspects of the research project envisioned.

CP³-Origins is a centre of excellence established by the Danish National Research Foundation, dedicated to the understanding of the origins of bright and dark matter in the universe, as well as to the understanding of the mathematical underpinning of gauge theories of fundamental interactions. At the moment it contains ten faculty members and several postdocs and PhD students in the areas of particle physics phenomenology, beyond standard model physics, astroparticle physics, lattice field theory, and cosmology. CP³-Origins offers an extremely dynamical and exciting work environment. We have close collaborations with leading scientists in Europe and the US and the centre is one of the cornerstones of our physics research.

The appointment will be for a term of three or four years, depending on the candidate’s background, at a very competitive salary and is expected to start in the beginning of 2017.
