Call for applications 2022 Visiting Scientist at GANIL, France

https://www.ganil-spiral2.eu/2022/06/01/call-for-visiting-scientist-program-of-ganil/

GANIL welcomes international scientists to apply to its new visitor program.

The objective of this visiting-scientist program is to provide an international venue for research on nuclear physics, accelerator and instrumentation developments, focused but not limited to GANIL investigations on rare isotopes and exotic beam production.

The program intends to strengthen and favor international collaborations between scientists working in the area of physics of exotic nuclei, including nuclear structure and reactions, nuclear astrophysics, as well as tests of the standard model using exotic nuclei. The program is open to both theorists and experimentalists.

The grants will cover travel and subsistence expenses for those researchers who are interested in spending a minimum of two months at GANIL to collaborate with GANIL scientists, as well as with researchers from other French laboratories. During their stay, short meetings and Workshops will be organized to favor exchanges with the whole French community and to increase the scientific impact and visibility of the collaboration project.

Applicants are expected to provide a CV and a short collaboration project, which will be reviewed by the GANIL User Executive Committee (GUEC). Projects for both ongoing and new collaborations may be funded. It is expected that a scientific contact in GANIL and/or in other French laboratories (related to GANIL activities) is included in the project definition.

This call will be open up to September 1st 2022, for visiting scientists in 2023. Selected researchers will be notified on the first of October.

If you are interested in constructing new or continuing collaborations with French colleagues working in nuclear physics, as well as instrumentation developments, this opportunity is for you.
