Six top Catalan research centres constitute 'The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology' to pursue a joint scientific endeavour

• CRG, ICIQ, ICN2,ICFO, IFAE and IRB Barcelona come together in this new institution.

• The Barcelona Institute emerges as one of the leading scientific institutes in Europe, ranking fourth in the number of ERC grants awarded per volume of researchers.

• Its Board of Trustees is formed by non-profits and renowned international scientists including Profs. Rolf Tarrach (Chair), Joan Massagué, and Ignacio Cirac, among others.

• The Barcelona Institute will promote joint research strategies, transfer of technology, and graduate programs.

June 2015: "Severo Ochoa" predoctoral positions in Theoretical and Experimental Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics, Cosmology and Instrumentation R&D at IFAE Barcelona

Publication Date: June 17, 2015

Closing Date: June 29, 2015

The "Institut de Física d'Altes Energies" (IFAE) in Barcelona announces the opening of four predoctoral positions for outstanding young graduates interested in working towards a PhD thesis at IFAE. These positions are funded by the Ministry of Competitiveness and Economy under the Severo Ochoa Program for Scientific Excellence, a distinction awarded to IFAE. The contracts will have a duration of four years (the typical time to prepare a PhD thesis at IFAE), and will enjoy competitive conditions, with a gross salary of 16.422€ per year.

The four position offered are:

SEMINAR: Searching for dark mediators

June 19 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Felix Kalhofer (DESY Hamburg)

Abstract : I will discuss dark matter models, which in addition to a new stable particle introduce a new mediator with a mass comparable to or even below the dark matter mass.

SEMINAR: Ultra-light dark matter and pulsar timing observations

June 18 2015, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Andrei Khmelnitsky (Ben Gurion U of Negev)

Abstract : An ultra-light free scalar field with mass in the range 10^{-23} - 10^{-22} eV is a viable dark mater candidate. It can address the overabundance of cold dark matter structures on sub-galactic scales.
