Workshop on New Trends in Dark Matter

December 7-9, 2020 (by videoconference)
ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

The goal of the workshop is to bring together theorists and experimentalists to discuss searches, theories, results, opportunities, and, in general, new ideas for sub-GeV dark matter. It will focus on models and regions in parameter space that are overlooked by the standard WIMP studies, and that may open a new window into the dark sector. If the WIMP paradigm turns out to be wrong, new theoretical and experimental directions may prove to be of outmost importance. This workshop aims at developing such ideas, paving the way for the discovery of dark matter. Continuar leyendo «Workshop on New Trends in Dark Matter»

3rd South American Dark Matter Workshop

December 2-4, 2020 (by videoconference)
ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Dark Matter constitutes one of the big mysteries in today’s Physics. Astrophysical and cosmological data hint at the necessity of physics beyond the standard model, although its characteristics are still currently unknown. The multidisciplinary effort in understanding the nature of dark matter has gathered a diversified community to study the experimental properties and theoretical expectations of different candidates. Over the last decades, high energy astrophysicists and theoretical physicists, astronomers and experimentalists developing collider and smaller experiments, cosmologists and experts in numerical N-body simulations have been working together in order to unravel the puzzle of Dark Matter.

Postdoctoral positions in field/string theory

The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR), located at the campus of the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) in São Paulo, announces the opening of up to 3 FAPESP postdoctoral positions to begin in 2021 in the area of quantum field theory/string theory. The fellowships are part of the “São Paulo Excellence Chair” FAPESP Program and physicist Pedro Vieira is the main researcher of this project.

IFT-UNESP has a strong string theory group including Nathan Berkovits, Horatiu Nastase and Andrei Mikhailov with whom the candidate can interact, and the neighbouring university USP also has a very strong quantum fields and string group including Victor Rivelles and Diego Trancanelli.
