About the Project
We are currently seeking for a highly qualified and motivated student with a strong research interest in nuclear physics. This project addresses the following fundamental questions: How do long- and short-range nucleon-nucleon correlations deplete the single-particle strength in asymmetric atomic nuclei? Answering this question for asymmetric nuclei is essential not only for understanding and modeling nuclear structure of finite nuclei far from stability but also to accurately account for the effects of correlations in systems such as neutron stars. Within this project, you will work on experiments probing nuclear structure and properties of exotic nuclei. The experimental work will be carried using the R3B setup at the FAIR facility in Germany. The experiments employ direct nuclear reactions and utilise state-of-the-art particle and gamma-ray spectroscopic tools and techniques, while they also involve sophisticated analysis methods of large data sets and computer simulations. These tools will help you build a solid background on experimental physics and help you develop valuable transferable skills. As part of this project you will also be traveling to other world-class international accelerator facilities around the globe to support the experimental investigations of the group and participate at international conferences to present your experimental results. The experience, skills and networking that you will develop through this PhD will be a valuable asset for pursuing a career in academia or industry.
This project will be advertised until a suitable candidate is found.
