PhD scholarship in experimental neutrino physics at the Niels Bohr Institute
The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in experimental neutrino physics commencing 15 June 2020 or shortly thereafter.
The position is funded by a grant from the Carlsberg Foundation to work on the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, specifically the DeepCore and upcoming IceCube Upgrade low-energy extension.
Description of the scientific environment
The candidate will be located at the Niels Bohr Institute, with the possibility of short stays abroad to foster enhanced research ties with international collaborators; most likely in N. America and/or N. Europe.
The successful applicant will be involved with multi-year data analysis from IceCube-DeepCore focusing on atmospheric neutrino oscillation physics and preparation for the 2022/23 deployment of the IceCube Upgrade. The local group is invested in making precision measurements of tau neutrino appearance, mitigating systematic uncertainties, and developing the related analysis and experimental techniques for analyzing data from the IceCube Upgrade. A background in experimental analysis techniques and computer coding are recommended.
Principal supervisor is Associate Professor D. Jason Koskinen koskinen (at) nbi.ku.dk

- To manage and carry through your research project
- Attend PhD courses
- Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
- Teach and disseminate your research
- The possibility of a stay at an external research institution for a few months
The deadline for applications is 15 April 2020, 23:59 GMT +2. Applications received after the deadline for applications may not receive full consideration.
