Number of months: 20 (+16)
Period: October 2014 - September 2017
Supervisor: Professor Karl Jakobs and Stefan Dittmaier
Objectives: The candidate will work on development of optimal analysis strategy for investigation of vector boson scattering and measurement of cross section and extraction of quartic gauge coupling and comparison to theoretical predictions in the Standard Model and its extensions (WP2).
Secondments: Short visits to any of the partners, particularly CERN depending on the development of the project. Six months at UDUR for validation of SHERPA and study of systematic uncertainties and a secondment in one of our private sector partners Maplesoft, Wolfram Research and Shell.
