Open positions for graduate students
The new Nuclear Astrophysics lab at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is seeking MSc and PhD students.
Nuclear Astrophysics is a field at the intersection of Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics that studies questions related to nuclear processes in stars and other astrophysical scenarios. In our lab we are focusing on experimental studies of nuclear reactions that are important for the understanding of explosive stellar nucleosynthesis, or, in other words, synthesis of nuclei in explosive scenarios such as Novae and Supernovae.
Position requirements include developing computer simulations, hands-on work, collaborating with colleagues from the Hebrew University and other institutes, performing experiments in particle accelerators abroad, analyzing experimental data, and publishing scientific results.
*Previous experience in the field of Nuclear Physics is not a requirement*
