Junior ESR (PhD) at Freiburg University (DE)

Host Institution: Freiburg University (DE)
Number of months: 20 (+16)
Period: October 2014 - September 2017
Supervisor: Professor Stefan Dittmaier and Professor Markus Schumacher
Objectives: The candidate will work on precision calculations for vector-boson scattering at the LHC in the channels of WW + 2 jets production including QCD and electroweak corrections. Optimisation of analysis strategy: event selection, choice of observables (WP2).
Secondments: Short visits to any of the partners, particularly CERN depending on the development of the project. Three months at DFTTO for investigation of NLO effects on pseudo-observables, three months at UDUR for implementation into SHERPA and a secondment in one of our private sector partners Maplesoft, Wolfram Research and Shell.
