AITANA

Advanced instrumentation and data analysis in accelerators

MATTER AND TECHNOLOGY

The Insituto de Física Corpuscular, IFIC, is a joint center of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC, and the Universitat de València, UVEG. The IFIC is dedicated to research in nuclear, particle and astroparticle phsyics and their applications to medical physics and other fields in science and technology.

The AITANA – matter & technology – group from IFIC is a multidiscipline team that encompasses experimental particle physics and accelerator physics researchers. We are involved in leading activities at ongoing experiments in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC): the ATLAS experiment and the MoEDAL experiment. In addition, we are also very active in future projects of the so called Higgs/EW/Top-quark factories, as the International Linear Collider (ILC) or the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). Our group is also invested in the search for the so-called axion particles which are one of the particles candidates to solve the dark matter puzzle. We also play an important role in the R&D programme of detectors for such facilities. Finally, we are also at the spanish and european vanguard of accelerator R&D for collider facilities and medical applications.
In summary, we are a research group with a broad portfolio of expertises in several areas of experimental particle physics: from the creation of technology solutions in the detector and accelerator instrumentation to the development of novel techniques for data analysis and particle physics phenomenology interpretations.

OPEN POSITIONS CALLS

  • Post-doctoral Positions in the AITANA - ATLAS/future collider group at IFIC. Deadline 1/10/2022

    The group has one or more open post-doctoral positions. The successful candidate(s) will participate in one of the main research lines of the group: a) Top physics at the Large Hadron Collider and Beyond. b) New physics searches at the LHC and a future Higgs factory. c) Development of ultra-granular calorimetry with CALICE and dark matter. d) Development of advanced accelerator technology The concrete research objectives within each of these lines will be agreed with the candidate. The selected candidates will be based in Valencia. Extended stays in one of the major labs are possible and encouraged. For more information, click on the title of this announcement.

  • PhD Positions in the AITANA - ATLAS/future collider group at IFIC. Deadline 1/10/2022

    The group has one or more open positions for Ph.D. students. The selected student will enroll in the doctoral programme at Valencia University and will be be based in Valencia, with extended stays in one of the major labs. He or she will participate in one of the main research lines of the group. The concrete programme for the Ph.D. will be agreed as a function of the interests of the successful candidate within the broader programme of the group.
