Studying the quark-gluon plasma via low-mass dilepton with ALICE
Applications are invited for two 3-year PhD positions at the Cluster
of Excellence 'Origin and Structure of the Universe' in Munich.
The Cluster of Excellence 'Origin and Structure of the Universe' is a
joint research institution at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen
(TUM), a cooperation by the physics departments of the TUM and the
Ludwig-Maximilians University, four Max-Planck Institutes (MPA, MPE,
MPP, IPP), the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and the computer
Successful applicants will be part of the newly established Junior
Research Group 'Studying the quark-gluon plasma via low-mass dilepton
with ALICE' headed by Torsten Dahms. The group aims to measure
low-mass dileptons with the ALICE experiment in heavy-ion collisions
at the LHC. Research experience in dilepton analyses and/or the ALICE
analysis framework is welcome.
Students will profit from scientific infrastructures on the Garching
campus and numerous scientific activities within the cluster, with
many opportunities for collaboration with other groups in Munich.
Candidates are expected to hold a master (or equivalent) degree in
particle or nuclear physics at the time of appointment. Applications
from female scientists and candidates with disabilities are especially
encouraged. The salary is according to the German public service pay
agreement (TV-L E13 50%).
Applications including a CV, a copy of the master/diploma certificate,
copies of the university scores, and a brief summary of previous
research activities should be uploaded on the Cluster website until
October 31, 2013.
(Note: There is only one recommendation letter required. Due to a technical problem, please insert dummy values in the extra name and e-mail fields at the end of the application form.)
