The High Energy Nuclear Physics group at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) is hiring a postdoctoral researcher to work in heavy-ion physics with focus on phenomenological and theoretical aspects of relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Previous experience and in hydrodynamical simulations applied to heavy-ion collisions is desirable.
The High Energy Nuclear Physics group at Unicamp is formed by four permanent faculty members (J. Takahashi, D. Chinellato, G. Torrieri, and A. C. Aguilar) and several graduate students. Two faculties are members of the ALICE collaboration at CERN, leading several different analysis topics within the experiment, currently focused on Light Flavored particles. The group has also been very active on the phenomenological aspects of heavy-ion collisions, including relativistic hydrodynamics, high-multiplicity proton-proton, proton-nucleus collisions, hadronic cascade models, and nonperturbative methods applied to QCD.
Unicamp is one of the top Universities of Latin America, highly recognized by its focus on scientific production. The campus is in the city of Campinas, located 80 km from the city of São Paulo, hence close to the main port of entry to Brazil.
The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) funds both positions, with an annual tax-free salary of R$ 88,000 (Brazilian Reais) and a grant of R$ 13,200 (Brazilian Reais) per year for traveling and research expenses. Moreover, moving costs may also be covered for those relocating more than 400 km, and it is equal to 1 month's salary.
The postdoctoral fellowship will be to start as soon as June 1st, 2021 and will extend till August 31st, 2022.
The applications should include (i) CV (including a list of publications), (ii) research statement, and (iii) two letters of recommendation. All documents should be sent to the email email@example.com until April 26th, 2021.
