Six months research grant (BI) on gravitational and high energy physics


A call for applications for a six months research grant (BI) is open from 9 October 2012 to 31 October 2012.


The grant will be attributed within the research project "Numerical Relativity and Phenomenology for the LHC" (Relatividade Numérica e fenomenologia para o LHC), PTDC/FIS/116625/2010, funded by FCT/MCTES (PIDDAC) and co-funded by the European Fund for Regional Development (FEDER) through COMPETE.


Applicants should have a B.Sc. (at least) in Physics, or a related degree. Research experience and authorship of scientific publications will be valued, especially in the area of the project (gravitational physics and high energy physics).


The work will be carried out at the Physics department of Aveiro University, within the gravitational physics group (, under the scientific orientation of Professor Carlos Herdeiro.


The grant will be for a period of six months, starting on January 1st 2013 (or later).


The successful candidate will be paid €745/month, cf. the FCT value for these grants (

The juri will be composed by: Prof. Carlos Herdeiro and Prof. Alexandre Correia (Physics Department, Aveiro University) and Dr. Juan Carlos Degollado Daza, post-doctoral research at the Physics Department, Aveiro University.c


The results will be announced by email to the candidates during November 2012, as well as posted in the Physics Department, Aveiro University.


Candidates should formalise their application by sending:
- Curriculum Vitae;
- Certificate(s) attesting their degree(s);
- One recommendation letter;
by electronic mail to Prof. Carlos Herdeiro (, with Cc to, with subject "Application to a BI grant within the project PTDC/FIS/116625/2010".
