HiggsTools

Junior ESR (PhD) at Nikhef Amsterdam (NL)

Host Institution: Nikhef Amsterdam (NL)
Number of months: 18 (+18)
Period: October 2014 - September 2017
Supervisor: Professor Stan Bentvelsen and Professor Eric Laenen
Objectives: The candidate will focus on the ttH process, using the event weight package MadWeight. The aim is to assess the precise NLO corrections to this event weight and feed it back in the event weight toolsso that they can subsequently be used to infer the Yukawa coupling of the top to the Higgs boson (WP2).
Secondments: Short visits to any of the partners. Three months to CERN for close consultation on analysis and a secondment in one of our private sector partners Maplesoft, Wolfram Research and Shell.
