Doctoral training in nuclear physics at the jyfl accelerator laboratory


Postgraduate positions tenable for a between three months and one year under the EU Marie Curie Training Site Programme are available at the Accelerator Laboratory of the Department of Physics (JYFL) of the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Basic research in the laboratory is focused on the study of structure, decay properties and production of exotic nuclei, and nuclear theory. Applications of accelerator-based physics include several lines of development of apparatus, use of energetic ion beams for working materials and studying various defects, and medical applications. The JYFL Accelerator Laboratory is one of the leading facilities in the world for low-energy nuclear structure research. As part of the University of Jyväskylä, the laboratory with its continuous development, construction and operation work offers an ideal training site for post-graduate students. The requirements for elible candidates are - Nationality of a Member or Associated State of the European Union - 35 years' age or less Free form applications should include details of research interests, curriculum vitae, official copies of certificates of degrees, list of courses passed and at least one letter of recommendation from the supervisors. The recommendation should include confirmation from the candidate's supervisor that the stay at JYFL forms an integral part of doctoral studies. Especially female candidates are encouraged to apply. Annually there are three scholarship grants of 1200 euro/month for doctoral studies at JYFL. Also return travel costs to the host institution are covered. Applications should be addressed to the head of the JYFL Accelerator Laboratory: Prof. Matti Leino, University of Jyväskylä, Department of Physics, P.O. Box 35, FIN-40351 JyväskyläMore information: Matti.Leino@phys.jyu. fi and http://www.phys.jyu.
