Marie Curie@LNF

“The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers – be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers – and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable research-focused organisations (universities, research centres, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide”.
In particular, “Individual Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe – as well as helping to attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU. The grant usually covers two years’ salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with their planned host organisation. Proposals are judged on their research quality, the researcher’s future career prospects, and the support offered by the host organisation. Fellows can also spend part of the fellowship elsewhere in Europe if this would boost impact, and those restarting their career in Europe benefit from special eligibility conditions”.
Further info on MSCA H2020 program can be found at the following link.

LNF is willing to serve as host institution for researchers interested in an Individual Fellowship. Researcher will have the opportunity to work in different fields of physics, in collaboration with international groups of acknowledged expertise. They could also join our research teams to develop their project and perform measurements at the LNF facilities.
This is an invitation to profit of a research infrastructure unique in Italy, hosting scientific and technological excellences in several areas.

The Accelerator Division major projects are:

  • DAΦNE, an e+ e– collider operating at Φ meson resonance (1.02 GeV), equipped with state-of-the-art accelerator technologies;
  • SPARC_LAB, an interdisciplinary photon facility hosting a Free Electron Laser (FEL), an X-ray source from the collision of electrons with the photon beam of a 200 TW laser, and an advanced infrastructure for R&D studies on plasma-based acceleration.

The Research Division is developing a wide program in particle detector R&D with leadership role in the study of novel tracking detectors (GEM, μ-RWELL or MPGD).
The setting-up of a new laboratory to study single-photon counters (cryogenic solid-state detectors for searches of axions and dark matter) is in progress.
LNF researchers are carrying out experiments at the DAΦNE complex, providing precision measurements in particle and nuclear physics at 1 GeV (KLOE-2 and SIDDHARTA-2) or searching for particles in the Dark Sector (PADME) with the Linac beam.
On-going data taking at the collider is a unique opportunity to get direct experience on the operation of experiments in fundamental physics.
DAΦNE synchrotron light beams (DAΦNE_L) are used as high resolution probes of material scienceand biophysics.
Moreover, a large number of scientific activities are being performed at the major international laboratories of particle, nuclear and astro-particle physics, in theoretical physics, and within projects of advanced technology and radioprotection.
Interested researchers are encouraged get in contact with us writing an email to: fondiesternilnf@lists.lnf.infn.it

A winning story of Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions Fellow, Dr. Elisabetta Baracchini

Video with the interview (in Italian) with Elisabetta Baracchini. Elisabetta won the MSCA Individual Fellowship with a project aiming at developing an innovative detector for the detection of Dark Matter. About LNF she says: “LNF is a Laboratory with great skills. Fundamental for the success of the project”.
