Ph.D. positions, Experimental Heavy-Ion Physics (ALICE), Utrecht University (September 2008)

The Institute of Subatomic Physics at Utrecht University has several openings for Ph.D. positions in Experimental Heavy-Ion Physics. The group is participating in the ALICE experiment at the CERN-LHC and has leadership responsibility for the Silicon Strip Detector (SSD) as a part of the Inner Tracker System.

The successful Ph.D. candidates will work actively on the data analysis related to heavy-flavour physics. Experience in experimental physics or high-energy/nuclear physics are of advantage. The Ph.D. program in the Netherlands takes up to four years.

The expected start date for the positions is autumn 2008, and applications will be accepted any time up until the positions are filled. The positions are funded through a Starting Grant from the European Research Council.

Interested candidates should provide a curriculum vitae with a brief description of their research experience and at least two reference.
