Phy6cool: Escuela de verano de Física de Partículas, Astropartículas y Cosmología

La Unidad CIEMAT – Física de Partículas convoca por primer año phy6cool, escuela de verano de Física de Partículas, Astropartículas y Cosmología. La escuela se celebrará en las instalaciones del CIEMAT (Madrid) del 13 al 17 de Julio de 2020, y está dirigida a estudiantes hispanohablantes cursando el grado de Físicas. La escuela estará compuesta de seminarios teóricos, prácticas de laboratorio, ejercicios y sesiones de orientación. El objetivo de phy6cool es proporcionar a jóvenes universitari@s interesad@s en realizar una carrera en investigación una visión general del campo de la física fundamental, una introducción al día a día del personal investigador y una orientación sobre las diversas opciones existentes de desarrollo profesional.

El plazo de inscripción permanecerá abierto hasta el 20 de Abril.

PhD position in Direct Dark Matter Search with Liquid Argon Detectors

The Dark Matter research group (CIEMAT-DM) of the CIEMAT-FP Unit (Centre for Research in Energy, Environment and Technology in Madrid, Spain) announces the upcoming opening of a predoctoral position for outstanding young MSc graduates interested in working in direct Dark Matter search activities towards a PhD Thesis. The 4-year PhD contract is funded by CIEMAT. The official call will be announced in the webpage http://www.ciemat.es/portal.do?IDM=254&NM=2 in the upcoming weeks (February-March). It will also be announced at http://cfp.ciemat.es/predoc, http://darkmatter.ciemat.es/predoc and in social networks. The candidate must have a Master Degree in Physics (according to the Bologna Declaration).
The CIEMAT-DM group participates in the DArT experiment in the Canfranc Underground Laboratory (LSC, Spain), in DEAP-3600 (SNOLAB, Canada) and in the DarkSide-20k experiment to be installed in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS, L’Aquila, Italy). The PhD student is expected to work in the analysis of physics data, as well as in the development of innovative hardware, detector simulation and analysis software for current and future LAr detectors. The selected student is expected to spend part of his/her time at LSC, LNGS, and other collaborating institutes worldwide.
