Position Title: PhD student
Position Type:Student programs
Position Location:Gif sur Yvette, Ile de France 91191, France [map]

Position Description:    

*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed, and no new applications is accepted. ***

We invite applications for up to two three-year PhD studentships to begin between January and March of 2021 in the domains of scattering amplitudes and gravitational waves. The studentship(s) will be funded by the recently awarded European Research Council Advanced Grant, “Ampl2Einstein” (ERC–2019–ADG 885414).

The studentship(s) will be held at the Institut de Physique Theorique (IPhT) at Saclay in the Paris suburbs, and may include extended research visits to the partner institution, CERN, in Geneva.  Accepted applicants will pursue a PhD degree to be awarded by Université Paris–Saclay in the subject of theoretical predictions for gravitational waves using techniques from quantum scattering amplitudes.  The monthly stipend of the studentship will typically be around 1580 euros/month (after deduction of social charges).

At the time of appointment, applicants may not already have been awarded a doctoral degree; and must be in the first four years of their research careers. Applicants must be currently enrolled in or have completed a master’s degree program in theoretical high-energy physics, and must have already completed at least one course in quantum field theory. Award of the studentship will be contingent on successful completion of the master’s degree by January 2020. In addition, applicants must be fluent (reading, writing, and speaking) in English.

Applications should include a CV, a transcript of bachelor’s and master’s courses with grades, and names of two referees who may be contacted. If the master’s program includes a thesis or internship, the supervisor’s name should also be supplied.

All materials should be uploaded electronically to Academic Jobs Online.

Applications should be received by July 31, 2020 in order to receive full consideration.
