PhD in Gravitational Wave Physics at IFAE

The „Institut de Física d’Altes Energies“ (IFAE) in Barcelona welcomes applications for a PhD position in Gravitational Wave physics using ground-based interferometers. IFAE is a member institution of the Virgo and Einstein Telescope Collaborations. A group of researches from IFAE has taken significant responsibilities related to the control of the stray light inside Virgo, which is considered a limiting factor for its sensitivity. The group plays an important role in the ongoing commissioning, operations and upgrade of the interferometer. For the latter, IFAE is leading the construction of new baffles instrumented with photo sensors around the test masses for Advanced Virgo. In addition, IFAE is deeply involved in the detector R&D and simulation activities of the future Einstein Telescope, and is a member of the ETpathfinder R&D platform. Application deadline: February 5th 2023.
