The Institute of Physics has a vacancy for a PhD candidate in experimental particle physics - ATLAS.
The Nikhef ATLAS group consists of groups in Amsterdam and Nijmegen, for a total of 15 staff, and typically 5 postdocs and 20 PhD students. We have constructed part of the semiconductor tracker (SCT), part of the barrel muon chambers, and elements of muon chamber readout, alignment, slow control, trigger and data acquisition. Our group has responsibilities in data acquisition (FELIX) and trigger, construction of the new inner tracker (ITk), the readout and alignment of muon chambers, as well as muon reconstruction software, and we have been active in several analyses in Higgs, SUSY, exotic and top-quark physics.
We are looking for a candidate with an (almost) completed master degree in high-energy physics, or a closely related field. The successful candidate has interest in data analysis as well as affinity with theoretical aspects of top quark production. Programming skills will be important for this project. The candidate is expected to start in summer or early fall of 2019.
The appointment will be on a temporary basis for a period of 4 years (initial appointment will be for a period of 18 months and after satisfactory evaluation it can be extended for a total duration of 4 years) and should lead to a dissertation (PhD thesis). An educational plan will be drafted that includes attendance of courses and (international) meetings. The PhD candidate is also expected to assist in teaching of undergraduates.
Based on a full-time appointment (38 hours per week) the gross monthly salary will range from €2,266 in the first year to €2,897 in the last year. The Collective Employment Agreement (Cao) of Dutch Universities is applicable.
