New postdocs: Chieh-Jen Yang and Diogo Franzosi

Two excellent postdocs have recently joined the Theoretical Subatomic Physics group: It is Chieh-Jen Yang, most recently from George Washington Unniversity, and Diogo Franzosi, University of Göttingen. Chieh+Jen is an expert on effective field theory for nuclear systems and Diogo works on high-energy physics phenomenology.

Large project grant from KAW to Stockholm-Chalmers-Uppsala collaboration including Gabriele Ferretti

The project is a collaboration between theorists and experimentalists (working at the ATLAS experiment, CERN) led by docent Sara Strandberg at Stockholm university. They will search for the partner particle of the top quark. The project was selected for funding by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation and will receive 35 MSEK for five years. For more information, see the: [KAW project page] (in Swedish).

ERC starting grant to Andreas Ekström

For the next five years, Andreas will lead a research project funded with 1,5 M€ from the ERC. The goal is to establish methods and theories to model atomic nuclei, and most importantly to calculate the uncertainties in these models. For more information, see the: [Chalmers press release] (in Swedish), [ERC press release].
