Junior ESR (PhD) at ETH Zurich and Zurich University (CH)

Host Institution: ETH Zurich and Zurich University (CH)
Number of months: 36
Period: October 2014 - September 2017
Supervisor: Professor Guenther Dissertori, Professor Massimiliano Grazzini and Professor Michael Spira
Objectives: The candidate will work on the the improvement and refinement of theoretical predictions for Higgs boson production and decay, as well as the development of corresponding tools aiming at a reduction of the theoretical uncertainties (WP2).
Secondments: Short visits to any of the partners, particularly CERN depending on the development of the project. Two months at DFTTO, two months at UZH and two months at PSI for training in code development and one month at ALU-FR for interfacing theory with experimentalists and a secondment in one of our private sector partners Maplesoft, Wolfram Research and Shell.
