Competition opened on: 20 June 2018
Application submission deadline: 30 August 2018
NCBJ is inviting students of physics to apply for 4 year-duration doctoral studies in Warsaw Neutrino Group in the T2K neutrino experiment. Partially scholarship will be covered by funding from OPUS-2016/21/B/ST2/01092 project financed by National Science Center (NCN). The student is expected to complete his/her PhD degree thesis in elementary particle experimental physics during that time.
Dark matter: theoretical models, particle candidates and prospects of their experimental discovery
The Particle Theory Group led by Prof. Leszek Roszkowski invites applications for a 4- year PhD studentship at the National Centre for Nuclear Research (NCBJ). The studentship is funded by National Science Centre (Narodowe Centrum Nauki, NCN) within the Maestro grant “Dark matter: theoretical models, particle candidates and prospects of their experimental discovery”.
Design, construct and test a prototype neutron detector
Helium-3 isotope is commonly used as detection medium in detectors applied for neutron detection in many fields of industry and physics. The world crisis of He-3 isotope is forcing for a research and development of other neutron detection methods. Recently, a multigrid gas detector based on boron coated blades has been developed at Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble as an alternative for commonly applied He-3 proportional counters in neutron scattering experiments. However, it may be considered to use this solution for other applications.
Study of the intrinsic 3D-structure of the proton at CERN
The structure of strongly interacting particles, like nucleons and mesons, is provided by the theory of strong interactions – Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD). In the framework of QCD the internal structure and properties of nucleons and mesons are determined by the interactions between their elementary constituents, quarks and gluons (commonly referred to as ‘partons’).
