Norway Experimental Particle Physics PhD Fellowship 2015


Awarding Institute/Country: University of Oslo in Norway is providing this Fellowship.

Scholarship Description: University of Oslo is inviting applications for a PhD research fellowship in experimental particle physics at the Department of Physics. The successful candidate will work with data taken by the ATLAS experiment situated at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. If the successful candidate has a good knowledge of one Scandinavian language (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish), the fellowship will be for a period of 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work. Otherwise, the fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with no compulsory work. The application deadline is 1 May, 2015.

Position as PhD Research fellow in Experimental Particle Physics is available at The Department of Physics, University of Oslo. If the successful candidate has a good knowledge of one Scandinavian language (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish), the fellowship will be for a period of 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work (teaching responsibilities at The Department of Physics). Otherwise, the fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with no compulsory work. Starting date as soon as possible, no later than 01.10.2015. The successful candidate will work with data taken by the ATLAS experiment situated at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. LHC is expected to restart proton-proton collisions and data-taking in April 2015 at high luminosity and energy. The present ATLAS analysis involvements of the Oslo group include Supersymmetry searches in final states containing leptons, searches for exotic particles such as new gauge bosons (W’, Z’) and gravitons, and Higgs boson searches and measurements. The group is heavily involved in distributed computing and the ATLAS detector upgrade, in particular in relation with the planned new tracking detector ITk. The research program is carried out within the HEPP project in close collaboration with the University of Bergen.

Study Subject(s): Fellowship is awarded in Experimental Particle Physics at the Department of Physics.
Course Level: Fellowship is available for undertaking PhD research program at University of Oslo.

Eligibility:
-The research topic is interdisciplinary and the candidate is expected to acquire the required theoretical, computational and experimental skills to carry out interdisciplinary dark matter research during the research.
-Applicants must hold a Master’s degree in physics or engineering, with very good results. The applicant has to have a solid background in scientific programming, experience in data-analysis, use of advanced statistical tools and methods. Experience with working in a big research group or collaboration is an advantage.
-The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree.
-A good command of English is required of all students attending the University of Oslo.
