Poland: MSCA (Individual Fellowship) - Offer from The University of Silesia in Katowice

Attached is a MSC Hosting offer from The University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland. The univerisity is seeking to develop collaborative funding proposals with experienced researchers for submission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship programme. The reseacher would be working in the field of particle physics in the Institute of Physics, as part of the faculty of mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

The University of Silesia in Katowice is a public institution established in 1968. Now, with 12 faculties and several interdisciplinary schools and centers, over 30000 students and over 2000 academic staff the University is one of the largest in Poland. Students are educated at three educational levels: Bachelor, Master and Doctoral. Internationalization of research and education is one of the priority directions of development of the University of Silesia: the University of Silesia collaborates with over 300 higher education institutions from all over the world through student and academic staff exchanges and joint educational and research projects.

The Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, one of the largest university units, incorporates, as its name indicates, three separate institutes: mathematics, physics and chemistry, each with several divisions and subdivisions carying out the research and educational activities. The Faculty is entitled to grant doctoral degrees in the field of natural sciences.

The August Chełkowski Institute of Physics is divided into seven experimental and four theoretical research groups. Most of the experimental activities are concentrated on the condensed matter physics. WWW web page: http://www.if.us.edu.pl/index.php/en/

The Elementary Particle Physics group members are experts in the calculation of electroweak corrections in the SM and beyond, low energy hadronic physics, methods of loop calculations, development of dedicated Monte Carlo event generators and computer programs. Within the Marie Curie actions, the researchers have participated in the past in several European networks, e.g., LHCPhenoNet, FlaviaNet and HEPTOOLS. The team collaborates with many academic centers (Valencia, Mainz, Paris, Pavia, Karlsruhe, Hamburg) and research organizations (CERN, DESY).
