A new Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position in the network has opened up at Technical University Munich (TUM).

Different from the experimentally oriented ESR positions we have filled so far in the network, TUM is offering a three-year Ph.D. position in theoretical physics. The ESR will be involved in searches for New Physics and their implications for Physics beyond the Standard Model. The main goal will be the application of the relevant tools in searches for new physics manifesting itself in new particles, like supersymmetric partners of the Standard Model or non-Standard Model Higgs signals. In particular, the ESR will work on the reinterpretation of advanced searches within a public recasting framework.

Of course also in this case, a very rich training programme is foreseen for the ESR. It includes the participation in several international doctoral schools, workshops and conferences. In addition, there will be two visiting periods to two of the partner institutions of the network, UCL Louvain in Belgium and to the heart of particle physics, CERN. The ESR will also be given the opportunity to get to know the world outside of research during a three-month secondment at a network partner with expertise in applications of Machine Learning tools.
