The Theoretical Particle Physics group in Lund is inviting applications for a PhD position starting in the fall of 2024.

The 4-year PhD position will be supervised by Christian Bierlich and Korinna Zapp. The research project is centered around phenomenological investigations of collective behavior in small collision systems, such as proton-proton collisions, proton-ion collisions or light ion collisions, at high energies, such as they are carried out at the LHC. The projects will entail development and use of phenomenological models - particularly Monte Carlo event generators - for collective behavior, based on microscopic principles.

The Theoretical Particle Physics group in Lund is mainly active in particle physics phenomenology, with work that relates theory to quantitative predictions for collider experiments. The group is subdivided into smaller, more informal, research groups centered around different research areas, reflecting the individual researchers' projects. The employed doctoral student will participate in the group concerned with QCD and event generators, which currently consists of seven seniors, Christian Bierlich, Rikkert Frederix, Gösta Gustafson (emeritus), Leif Lönnblad, Malin Sjödahl, Torbjörn Sjöstrand (emeritus) and Korinna Zapp. The group is co-localized, and has good relations, with experimental groups active in experiments at CERN and elsewhere, for example the ALICE experiment.
