We have one PhD project at CFisUC (Univ Coimbra, Portugal), submitted within IDPASC, an International Doctorate Network in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology, on the effect of strong magnetic fields in the inner crust of neutron stars.
Well-motivated candidates interested in neutron star physics with emphasis on the nuclear and stellar matter equation of state should contact Dr. Helena Pais (hpais[AT]uc.pt) as soon as possible for more details. Candidates should prepare a CV, a motivation letter, and a document with all the academic certificates, all in pdf format. Three contacts for reference letters should also be mentioned. This project is in collaboration with LPC-Caen (Normandie Univ, France). The deadline for the candidates’ application is November 30 2020. Candidates should hold a master degree by the time of application. Note that candidates with degrees obtained in an institution outside Portugal should request its registration, or official request of registration, when applicable, in order to comply with Portuguese legislation.
