The AMVA4NewPhysics network is completing its hiring of ten Early-Stage Researchers, who will do research in ATLAS or CMS and obtain a Ph.D. at the end of a three-year period. So far we hired six bright young guys and gals (they have been blogging here for a while now, so if you dig in the past articles in this blog you will find their presentation), and four more are going to be hired in the forthcoming four months.

As AMVA4NewPhysics is declaredly sensitive to the issue of gender balance in Science, we have inserted in all our calls for applications a special encouragement for the application of female students. And so far we are extremely satisfied both with the level of our trainees, as well as with the fact that we have a perfect gender balance in the pool: 3 males and 3 females! This is very unusual in our field of research, so we are very, very proud of it. Also, it is one promise we made to our funding agent – the Horizon2020 program of the EU – so for us this is twice as important.

Currently there is one open call, for a position at the Université Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand. The student hired there will work under the advisory of prof. Julien Donini, performing searches for new physics with ATLAS data. For more information and the application form, please visit this site.

Three more calls will soon open (for ESR positions at CERN, TUM, and IASA), so if you are interested be sure to keep watching both this space, and the AMVA4NewPhysics web page. It would be advisable to follow the blog as we plan to import the contents of the web page here – it makes little sense to maintain both.
