Our paper on the efficient use of worldline qft techniques for the construction of gravitational wave forms in the scattering of two black holes, neutron stars or stars has been accepted in PRL. A great success for our double copy collaboration of Jan^2*Gustav^2!
Starting next week a variety of courses, both at the advanced and introductory level, is offered by our PIs. The full program is listed here.
Our third hiring round has been completed with the hiring of two new doctoral researchers, Alessandro Cotellucci (U Bologna) and Moritz Kade (TU Munich). We warmly welcome them to the RTG and wish a successful and enjoyable time at Humboldt University.
Prof. Alessandra Buonanno has been awarded the Galileo Galilei Medal together with Prof. Thibault Damour (Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques) and Prof. Frans Pretorius (Princeton University). With this prize the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) honours Alessandra Buonanno for “the fundamental understanding of sources of gravitational radiation by complementary analytic and numerical techniques, … Read more Alessandra Buonanno receives Galileo Galilei Medal
The Research Training Group 2575 “Rethinking Quantum Field Theory” invites applications for several doctoral positions in theoretical physics, starting March 1st 2021. The application deadline is January 1st 2021. Details about the application process can be found here.
A kick-off hike for our new RTG members took place on Monday Oct 26th. Despite the drizzle at the beginning and COVID-19 protective measures the easy walk in the Dahlemer Feld was an enjoyable opportunity to meet and talk to fellow doctoral students and PIs.
Due to the corona pandemic our first retreat is replaced by an online meeting (via zoom). Details and the program can be found here.
We were able to successfully complete the second hiring round in July. By now the RTG comprises 15 doctoral researchers and 2 postdoctoral researchers. A warm welcome to all new members!
The first QFT colloquium within the RTG qualification program took place on May 29th. We are glad Giulia Zanderighi from the Max Planck Institut München accepted our invitation and agreed to talk on Precision at the LHC: why and how. Her zoom webinar went without hiccups and was followed by 37 participants. RTG members can … Read more First QFT colloquium
Many studies have confirmed the power of unconscious biases in shaping decisions in almost every aspect of life. Facing the challenge to select the best doctoral researchers from more than a 160 applicants from all over the world, the PIs of the RTG participated in a training seminar to address various forms of unconscious biases … Read more Unconscious bias training
