Junior ESR (PhD) at Freiburg University (DE)

Host Institution: Freiburg University (DE)
Number of months: 20 (+16)
Period: October 2014 - September 2017
Supervisor: Professor Markus Schumacher and Professor Karl Jakobs
Objectives: The candidate will work on the development of tool/recipe to estimate uncertainties for Higgs boson selection efficiencies in several topologies in particular for vector boson fusion and provide numbers to LHC collaborations (WP1).
Secondments: Short visits to any of the partners, particularly CERN depending on the development of the project. Three months at UDUR for validation of SHERPA and three months at the University of Louvain for validation of aMC@NLO/MADGRAPH for jet veto in vector boson fusion and a secondment in one of our private sector partners Maplesoft, Wolfram Research and Shell.
