The IFIC hosts very strong experimental and theory groups covering a wide variety of topics in Particle, Astroparticle and Nuclear Physics, which participate in several international experiments as well as in the applications of these disciplines to other fields of Science and Technology. Further information about the institute and research interests can be found in the website http://ific.uv.es.

The main topic of the PhD thesis will be the study of the interactions of the Higgs boson to top quarks using data recorded by the ATLAS detector, which require sophisticated data analysis (machine learning, statistical tools, state-of-the art theoretical predictions and global fit for new physics interpretations).

Applicants must hold a Master degree (or equivalent) in Physics or in similar field, or expect to hold such a degree by September 15th 2019. Applicants are expected to have a strong commitment to forefront research lines in particle physics.
