Norway : PhD Research Fellow at Center for Accelerator-based Research and Energy Physics

Sponsored Links

The Department of Physics has experimental as well as theoretical research activities in a broad range of subfields (see http://www.physics.uio.no/research/), with a stated ambition of attaining excellence in its main fields of research. At the department there is a scientific staff of 47 tenured positions, 8 adjunct professors, and 21 fellowships for PhD-students. In addition there are 52 temporary positions based on external financing. There is a technical/administrative staff of 38 persons. The teaching at the department is related to the degrees of bachelor, master and PhD, currently with about 125 master- and 75 PhD students. For more information please see www.fys.uio.no.

One position is available as PhD research fellow to join the low-energy nuclear physics group at the Center for Accelerator-based Research and Energy Physics (SAFE). The position is limited to a four-year period and includes 25% teaching duties. The successful candidate should be prepared to start as soon as possible and no later than February 1st 2011.

Job description:

The group’s research is focused on the study of atomic nuclei under extreme conditions, e.g. nuclei at high excitation energy at the transition from quantum order to chaos, of exotic nuclei with an unusual ratio of protons and neutrons, or of very (super)heavy nuclei. To obtain experimental information under such conditions is crucial in order to constrain and improve theoretical models of the nuclear many-body system. Experiments are performed both at the Oslo Cyclotron and at accelerator facilities abroad.

The goal of the PhD project is the measurement of electromagnetic transition probabilities from short-lived excited states in exotic neutron-rich nuclei. An experiment will be performed at the Grand Accélérateur National d’Ions Lourds (GANIL) in Caen (France), where neutron-rich nuclei will be produced using fusion-fission reactions. Transition rates will be obtained by measuring the lifetimes of excited states, typically some 10-12 s, in a variety of fission fragments. The experiment will be performed within a large international collaboration. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to take a leading role throughout the entire project, which includes the preparation and realization of the experiment, data analysis and interpretation, and publication of the results.

Requirements:

The candidate must have a background corresponding to a masters in physics, with a strong background in nuclear physics. The applicant will be largely responsible for data analysis and should be familiar with C/C++ programming and data analysis techniques. Experience in gamma-ray spectroscopy and knowledge of magnetic spectrometers are an advantage.

Applicants may submit a project proposal for the qualifying work during the program. The project proposal should include research topic, main issues, as well as choice of theory and method.

The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree.

The fellowship requires admission to the research training programme at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. An approved plan for the research training, including a project outline, must be submitteed no later than two months after taking up the position, and the admission must be approved within three months. The teaching must be conducted in one of the Scandinavian languages or English.

Salary:

PhD Research Fellow (SKO 1017), pay grade: 48-56 (NOK 383 700 – 440 500) per year, depending on seniority/qualifications)

The application must  include:

  • Application letter including a letter of intent
  • CV (summarizing education, positions and academic work - scientific publications)
  • Copies of educational certificates, transcript of records and letters of recommendation
  • List of publications and academic work that the applicant wishes to be considered by the evaluation committee
  • Names and contact details of 2-3 references (name, relation to candidate, e-mail and telephone number)

Foreign applicants are advised to attach an explanation of their University’s grading system. Please remember that all documents should be in English or a Scandinavian language.

Closing date for applications: 7 December, 2010 

The University of Oslo has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results a.o.

In accordance with the University of Oslo’s equal opportunities policy, we invite applications from all interested individuals regardless of gender or ethnicity.
