2 PhD fellowships in Experimental Heavy-Ion Physics, Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen

The High Energy Heavy Ion (HEHI) group  at the Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, announces two PhD fellowships with start 1 September 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The group’s current research is centered around the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The group operates the Forward Multiplicity Detector (FMD) and the TPC-laser system in ALICE. Current research interests include the study and analysis of collective anisotropic flow, correlations, identified particle spectra and global observables (multiplicity) over a broad range of rapidity.
We are seeking excellent PhD fellow candidates with demonstrated initiative to strengthen and further develop the group’s activities in a 3 year PhD fellowship.
The successful candidates will also be expected to participate in 1) the running of the experiment at CERN in data taking periods and contribute to the quality control of data taken with the detectors operated by the group, 2) workshops and analysis meetings at CERN, and, 3) contribute to general ‘service tasks’ in the ALICE collaboration.
Applicants may be invited for an interview in Copenhagen.
For further information please contact Principal Supervisor, group leader, Professor Jens Jørgen Gaardhøje (gardhoje@nbi.dk).
The deadline is May 1, 2016. The link to the full add including employment conditions etc is: .  http://jobportal.ku.dk/phd/?show=814922
