Ph.D. student position 1 in the field of Experimental Heavy-Ion Physics within the ALICE experiment

Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) is a technical research university with traditions in education dating back to the 19th century, being the oldest of its kind in Poland. It is a forward-thinking institution where high-quality education meets world-class research and innovation. WUT is ranked number one among all technical universities and number three among all universities in the country. Warsaw University of Technology participates in two LHC experiments: ALICE (physics
and computing) and CMS (electronics) as well as several non-LHC experiments (including NA61/SHINE or STAR at RHIC). The ALICE group at WUT consists of 9 staff members (including 2 full professors) and a number of Ph.D., M.Sc., and B.Sc. students working in the group during realization of their diploma theses. We are active in the physics analysis of ALICE data including femtoscopy and angular correlations. The group also closely cooperates in this field with the STAR group at WUT. Other activities include responsibility for running and maintaining the event display software in ALICE as well as active involvement in machine learning tools and methods to be used in various aspects of the experiment.

Job Description

The successful candidate will work on the experimental examination of femtoscopic correlations of mesons and baryons (main focus on kaon-proton and kaon-deuteron
pairs) in the ALICE experiment. The scientific goal the project is the precise determination of the kaon-nucleon interaction. The successful candidate will be enrolled
in a Doctoral School no. 3 at the Warsaw University of Technology. It is expected that the candidate will defend his/her PhD thesis within 4 years.
