Open Position Call for Expression of Interest for PhD in Theoretical Physics. Standard Model and Flavour Physics

Opening Date:
Closing Date: Until Filled

The “Institut de Física d’Altes Energies” (IFAE) in Barcelona welcomes expressions of interest for PhD positions on Theoretical Physics, along the strategic lines of the members of Standard Model Physics and Flavor Physics group. Its research objectives are to apply Effective Field Theories (EFTs) to different (in scale) physical systems, ranging from bound states to binary systems, to use Flavour Physics as an effective tool for discovery by means of B-meson decays, to better establish the foundations of the Operator Product Expansion (OPE) as a tool for theoretical analyses in quantum field theories, to further improve the hadronic contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment aiming for a reduction of the theoretical error to pave the way for clean physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) analyses, and to use meson physics as a laboratory for testing QCD at low energies and searching for new physics.

The members of the group are R. Escribano ( ), P. MasJuan ( ), J. Matias ( ), S. Peris ( ) and A. Pineda ( ).

If you are eligible for the grants , please add the word INPHINIT to the email subject.

Candidates should send their applications in a single pdf file (including CV, research interests, and publication list) to any of the members of the group. The candidates should name in their applications two persons willing to write letters of recommendation on their behalf. The subject should be “PhD application 2024”. Candidacies will be accepted until suitable candidates are identified. The selection will be based on the academic and scientific record of the candidate, the recommendation letters and the potential of the candidate to integrate well in the group.

IFAE is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace and social integration of people with a disability. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates. People from groups that are typically underrepresented in the labour market in general, and in Science and Engineering in particular, such as women, minorities, or people with a disability, are particularly encouraged to apply.
