Thesis topic proposal

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”.

A successful candidate will engage in a PhD project in the area of particle dark matter in the context of “new physics” models and the early Universe.

The international Particle Theory group at NCBJ will in Autumn comprise one professor, four adjuncts and five postdocs. A sample of recent publications of the group can be found, e.g., here.

More information can be obtained from Prof. Roszkowski (Leszek.Roszkowski@ncbj.gov.pl, +48 22 622 1613).

The NCN studentship of 3000 PLN is tax free. An application procedure and a list o required documents can be found at http://www.ipj.gov.pl/en/badania-naukowe/ncbj-phd- studies-programme. Good knowledge of English and reasonable programming skills will be helpful.
