EOS beh.h - 10 PhDs openings in High Energy Physics, theory and experiment.

In the context of the new EOS (Excellence of Science) programme in Belgium, the project

be.h -- The H boson gateway to physics beyond Standard Model

has started the 1st of Jan 2018, as a consortium among the HEP groups in five Universities in Belgium -- Universiteit Antwerpen (UA), Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Universiteit Ghent (UG), Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).

The be.h consortium offers 10 PhD positions as follows:

1 Theory vs. experiment on the Higgs boson potential TH Fabio Maltoni (UCL) and Alberto Mariotti (VUB) OPEN
2 Study of the HVV off-shell processes EXP Pascal Vanlaer (ULB) and Nick Van Remortel (UA) FILLED
3 Higgs boson production in the VBF mechanism EXP Pierre Van Mechelen (UA) and Laurent Favart (ULB) FILLED
4 The top-Higgs connection in the SMEFT EXP Andrea Giammanco (UCL) and Jorgen d'Hondt (VUB) FILLED
5 Electroweak couplings of the top quark in ttV EXP Didar Dobur (UG) and Andrea Giammanco (UCL) FILLED
6 Search for a heavy resonance decaying into Z+A/H EXP Christophe Delaere (UCL) FILLED
7 Search for dark Z bosons with lepton pairs EXP Steven Lowette (VUB) and Barbara Clerbaux (ULB) FILLED
8 Displaced heavy flavour identification EXP Freya Blekman (VUB) FILLED
9 Search for sterile neutrinos at CMS EXP Barbara Clerbaux (ULB) and Didar Dobur (UG) FILLED
10 Search for long-lived particles through displaced tau and hadronic signatures in CMS EXP Giacomo Bruno (UCL) FILLED
