Call for candidates at CEA Saclay PhD position in nuclear physics

The Nuclear Physics Division (DSM/IRFU/DPhN) of the French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA) at Saclay invites applications for a PhD position in experimental low-energy nuclear structure physics.
Research at DPhN is conducted in four areas: nucleon and hadron structure, quark-gluon plasma, nuclear reactions and their applications and nuclear structure. Concerning the latter, The Laboratoire d'Études du Noyau Atomique (LENA, Laboratory for nuclear structure study) has three research axes: the study of the shapes of nuclei, of the exotic nuclei, and of heavy and super-heavy elements. The candidate will work on this last topic.
