Physics Beyond Colliders" Study Group and kick-off workshop

Email Print PDF

We are pleased to announce the kick-off workshop of the "Physics Beyond Colliders" Study Group which has recently

been set up by CERN Management. The workshop will be held at CERN, Geneva, on September 6-7, 2016.

The main goal of the Study Group is to explore the opportunities offered by the CERN accelerator complex and infrastructure to provide new insight into some of today's outstanding questions in particle physics through projects complementary to high-energy colliders and other initiatives in the world.

Conférence ICHEP 2016 à Chicago : un déluge de données du LHC et de nouveaux résultats

Email Print PDF

Genève et Chicago, le 5 août 2016. Les physiciens des particules présentent lors de la conférence ICHEP 2016[1], à Chicago, une moisson de tout nouveaux résultats des expériences du Grand collisionneur de hadrons (LHC) du CERN[2]. Avec l’avalanche de nouvelles données récoltées, les collaborations des expériences peuvent à présent véritablement concentrer leurs efforts sur la nouvelle frontière d’énergie, 13 TeV, après les premiers aperçus l’année passée de la physique à cette énergie inédite. Les collaborations LHC présentent plus de 100 nouveaux résultats, parmi lesquels de nombreuses analyses s’appuyant sur les données les plus récentes, enregistrées en 2016.

post-doctoral positions at Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil

Email Print PDF

Application is open for two post-doctoral positions at Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil (FAPESP grant number 2012/04583-8) on the following research topics:

- Heavy flavour physics in the ALICE experiment
- Heavy-quark phenomenology on relativistic heavy ion collisions

These positions are for a period of two years. They also include a research grant that can be used for equipments and travel to conferences. Candidates are supposed to have:

- A recent Ph.D. degree in high-energy physics.
- Knowledge of English language.
- Experience in C++ programming.
- At least one publication in a peer reviewed journal.

The Brazilian group from Universidade de São Paulo is part of the ALICE Collaboration and it is involved in several data analysis related to heavy flavor physics. The group is also involved in the ALICE O2 project and the upgrade program.

Universidade de São Paulo is investing intensively in its internationalization program (, therefore foreigns candidates are very welcome! The university is considered one of the best Ibero-American Universities in the world (spanish and portuguese speaking Universities) and São Paulo is a city full of opportunities (

Interest candidates should send their CV and two letters of recommendation to Marcelo Munhoz ( CLOAKING ) or Alexandre Suaide ( CLOAKING ). Further information can also be obtained through these e-mail addresses. These positions will remain open until they are filled.

Les Brèves

Dear friends,  The ALICE EMCal project passed a major milestone today with the installation of two super modules - one fabricated in the US and one in Europe.  The installation was completed in the alloted time with only one or two minor hiccups.  Electrical connection of the SMs is already in progress and we should see first communication between the SMs and the ALICE DAQ room very soon.  Now we will turn our full attention on SM#3 and #4 and our (rather aggressive) goal of installing two more SMs before the LHC runs.

We are grateful for the outstanding expert support from ALICE Technical Coordination and the tireless effort of the Nantes team ( Manoel, Jean Se, Phillippe) that made this very challenging process seem routine.
