Qualification Details

Candidates are expected to have a very good Master's degree in Physics or related areas at the time of the commencement of employment. They must be eligible under the H2020 ITN mobility rules, specifically the researcher cannot have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting institution for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the recruitment date (see the H2020 guide for applicants).

Responsibilities/Job Description

The postgraduate fellowship is funded by the European Union H2020 programme through the European network for Particle physics, Lattice field theory and Extreme computing (EuroPLEx), the recently approved Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN). The Europlex network involves leading European Lattice Field Theory groups based at the following institutions: (Denmark) University of Southern Denmark, (Germany) University of Bielefeld, University of Regensburg, Humboldt University Berlin, (Ireland) Trinity College Dublin, (Italy) University of Parma, (Spain) Autonomous University Madrid (UAM), (UK) University of Edinburgh and Swansea University.

The research performed within the network aims to

  • Perform precision tests of the Standard Model.
  • Investigate Beyond the Standard Model candidate theories.
  • Probe the QCD phase diagram.
  • Non-perturbatively study theoretical aspects of Quantum Field Theories.

Documents Required

Application must be made in the form of a Declaration of Interest including the following:

  • A research proposal/description of your approach to the above project (max one page excluding references)
  • A letter stating your specific interest, motivation and qualifications for the project in question (max. two pages) (please attach this under box "Application form")
  • Detailed CV, including personal contact information• Copies of diplomas, Bachelor as well as Master’s degree, including transcript of notes/grades
  • At least two signed reference letters. Should your referees wish to send their letters directly to us, please have them use e-mail: anc@sdu.dk mentioning your name and the title of the position in the subject line. And please note that these also need to reach us before deadline.

About the Project

The PhD project will be concerned with exploring strongly coupled extensions of the Standard Model. Rigorous numerical methods based on lattice field theory will be employed to investigate the non-perturbative dynamics of the candidate models and to obtain quantitative information in order to test the models against experiment.

About the Employer: University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Note or Other details

The fellowships are funded for up to three years with a salary corresponding to an early stage researcher (ESR) position with the gross monthly living allowance of EURO 3,270 per month modified by the EU correction coefficient for the country of recruitment. In addition, a mobility allowance of EURO 600 per month will be paid, and, depending on marital status, possibly another EURO 500 per month of family allowance. The ESR salary is subject to local tax, social benefit and other deductions which differ widely between countries and may be substantial (above 40%).
