ESR Welcome Meeting

University College Durham.

On 1 – 2 April 2019, the SAGEX ESRs will meet as a group for the first time at our ESR Welcome Meeting at Durham University. The event will include an introductory talk by each ESR, the first meeting of the Young Researcher Committee and the start of the soft-skills training.

A full agenda is available. For other events in the SAGEX programme (including those open to external participants) please see our Scheduled Events page.

ESR positions available at Humboldt University Berlin

Two Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions within the SAGEX network are currently open to applications. Each position is a 36-month fellowship, and will involve working towards a PhD in theoretical physics as well as following the network’s training and development programme.

The project ‘Uncovering the kinematic algebra behind colour-kinematic duality’ will be supervised by Jan Plefka and closes for applications on 25 January 2019.

The project ‘Integrability for amplitudes and correlators’ will be supervised by Matthias Staudacher, and closes on 15 February 2019.

Visit our ‘Jobs’ page for more details and how to apply.

Outreach strategy for SAGEX

A group of SAGEX ESRs will meet with the Outreach Task Group in Berlin on 7 – 8 February 2019 to brainstorm ideas and plan the central outreach strategy for our project. Attendees will include Ekaterina Eremenko, a leading scientific film-maker, and Susanne Milde, an experienced scientific communicator, both of whom are industry partners of SAGEX.

We are in the exciting position of having significant funding to spend on outreach, and an opportunity to raise awareness of and interest in amplitudes research.

Apply for an Early Stage Researcher position

Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions within the SAGEX network are currently available at Trinity College Dublin and RISC GmbH (based in Hagenberg). Each position is a 36-month fellowship, and will involve working towards a PhD in theoretical physics as well as following the network’s training and development programme.

Visit our ‘Jobs’ page for more details and how to apply. (Please note that both positions have now closed).

Now confirmed: SAGEX school and workshop at DESY

Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY)

The first SAGEX school and workshop will take place at DESY from 22 July – 2 August 2018. It is part of a broad programme of events designed and run by the SAGEX network, and forms part of the core scientific, soft-skills and outreach training for our Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). The event will include training on scattering amplitudes and advanced topics in string and field theory, as well as scientific writing, good scientific practice and other important skills.

The event has been designed for the SAGEX ESRs, however the school (running from 22 – 26 July) will be open to a limited number of external participants. More information on how to secure a place will be provided nearer the time, or follow us on Twitter to stay up to date.
