Fighting Gender Bias

by Tommaso Dorigo

As the few regulars of this blog know, the AMVA4NewPhysics network has in its genes a strong will to fight for gender neutrality in its areas of operation – research in Particle Physics and Applied Statistics. We started off this endeavour 2.5 years ago by including three women as PI of beneficiary nodes out of a total of eight, which was *almost* good. But their research record was outstanding, too, which helped us getting funded!

So that was easy. What was less easy was to deliver what we promised in our programme – a hiring practice capable of producing a gender-balanced pool Continue reading “Fighting Gender Bias”

Last chance: IASA is offering the network’s last ESR position

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

While selection for the position at TUM is still ongoing, the call for the last Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position of the network has now been published by IASA, the Institute of Accelerating Systems and Applications, at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) in Greece. The selected candidate will be enrolled in the three-year Ph.D. program offered by the Department of Physics of the University of Athens.

Besides following mandatory courses of the PhD programme, the ESR will participate Continue reading “Last chance: IASA is offering the network’s last ESR position”

Technical University Munich offers Ph.D. position in the network

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

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 Continue reading “Technical University Munich offers Ph.D. position in the network”

Wanted: Early Stage Researcher at CERN

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The AMVA4NewPhysics members at CERN have recently opened the call to hire their second ESR after Anna Stakia, who you have recently met on this blog.

The new ESR’s work will focus on Higgs physics with modern statistical learning tools. The main goal is an improved classification of Higgs production in association with top quarks via the matrix element method. The successful candidate will contribute Continue reading “Wanted: Early Stage Researcher at CERN”
