Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Swansea
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount: €3,270
£2,908.34 converted salary* (EUR) per month
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 28th January 2019

Start date: July or October 2019 

This postgraduate fellowship is funded by the European Union H2020 programme through the European network for Particle physics, Lattice field theory and Extreme computing (EuroPLEx), a 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) Syddansk University, (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. 

The research provides a solid training in the analytical skills needed in quantum field theory and in particle physics phenomenology, as well as in high performance computing and in software development.  

One fellowships is available at the Department of Mathematics at Swansea University in the group of Professor G. Aarts and Professor B. Lucini. 

Eligibility 

Candidates are expected to have an MSc with merit or distinction or an MRes 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).
