Ph.D. Position in Theoretical Particle Physics
Ph.D. position in particle physics with emphasis on phenomenology of physics beyond the Standard Model, dark matter and neutrino physics.
Candidates must have a Masters degree in theoretical high-energy physics by the date of start of the Ph.D. contract. Candidates with a strong background in Theoretical Particle Physics (QFT, Elementary Particle Physics, Standard Model and Beyond...), Cosmology, Statistics and Numerics/Programming (Mathematica, C++, Python, etc) will be given preference. Applicants must be fluent in English. Female students are under-represented in STEM, and are encouraged to apply.
Applications should include a motivation letter, CV, academic transcripts of Bachelor’s and Master’s courses with grades, and contact information of two referees who may be contacted.
The position is funded via a GenT Excellence Program by the regional government (Generalitat Valenciana). The Ph.D. candidate will join IFIC, in Valencia, one the of largest institutes in Europe for research in particle physics. The duration of the contract is 3+1 years. Travel funds will be available in order for the Ph.D. student to go to Particle Physics Schools to improve her/his expertise in the field, as well as to workshops and conferences to present her/his work. Research stays in other well-known international groups are also envisaged.
