Particle and Nuclear Physics (PNP) is a hot area of science research at IST physics department. Research and PhD programs/projects are done in collaboration with prominent international institutes, such as: CERN, the Pierre Auger Observatory, Jefferson Lab, important universities of the peninsula, Valencia/Barcelona/Madrid, and other big universities of Europe/USA/Japan/India.

Researchers/professors working in PNP also include many people from other nationalities. All researchers belong to one of the Research Units, centers and labs receiving funding support, for e.g. PhD grants, from FCT - Ministry of Science and the EU.

The scientific works are published in international renown journals, such as: Physics Letters, Physical Review, JHEP etc.

Students are encouraged to do their post-graduate studies in Particle and Nuclear Physics either at the level of a Master of Science (2nd Bologna cycle), or a Ph.D. (3rd Bolongna cycle). The usual way to initiate a study is to make first contact (please feel free!!) directly with one of our reseachers/professors. E.g. the Master's degree (2nd Bologna cycle) MEFT program provides, as an example, some concrete thesis themes in this area, along with diverse grants. Additional info also at the IST site.

COST Workshop on Higgs and Flavour Physics: Present and Future

7 Janeiro 2019, 19:16 - Pedro Assis

The main goal of this workshop is to bring together a group of researchers with common interests from the different countries participating in the COST action "Connecting insights in fundamental physics", allowing them to share experiences and to discuss possible collaborations in the field of Higgs and Flavour Physics, including Neutrino Physics. This workshop will also provide an opportunity to present the GAMBIT collaboration and some of the existing modules for different calculations.

The emphasis of the workshop is on the topics:

  • Physics Beyond the SM (WG2)
  • Flavour Physics (WG3)
  • Neutrino Oscillations (WG4)
14-17 Jan 2019, IST, Lisboa, Anfiteatro Abreu Faro

4th Lisbon Mini School

7 Janeiro 2019, 16:34 - Pedro Assis

The Lisbon mini-school on Particle and Astroparticle Physics provides under-graduated students with a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects.
This school will give insigth to recent discoveries and to open challenges and will stress the research opportunities in the field in Portugal.

The school is mainly aimed to third year under-graduated students who have completed the course in Quantum Mechanics I.
