New Lagrange Thesis Fellowships
The lagrange Institute (Institut Lagrange de Paris, ILP) invites applications for the Lagrange thesis fellowships. The new Lagrange thesis fellows are expected to start in the Fall semester of 2013. The Lagrange thesis fellows will be enrolled in a doctoral school of the Université Pierre
Et Marie Curie, part of Sorbonne University, with access to intensive short courses in cutting--edge areas of the field, such as dark matter and dark energy research, theoretical and experimental particle physics, recent advances in quantum field theory and string theory.
A list of thesis project proposals written by members of the Institute can be found here). Candidates are invited to contact these potential advisors directly before submitting
their application (see at the bottom of this page). The deadline will be : January 15, 2013.
The first Lagrange Award
The directorate and scientific council of the Lagrange Institute, (Institut de Lagrange de Paris, ILP) invites expressions of interest for the first Lagrange award. The award is intended to bring established creative leaders in the research themes of the ILP to the institute
for extended periods of time, up to 6 months. Each award will be funded at the level of 100,000 Euro (more information: Lagrange Awards.pdf)
The Lagrange Institute (Institut Lagrange de Paris, ILP), established in 2011, unites research groups from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) and CNRS, mainly from the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, the Laboratoire de Physique Nucléaire et Hautes Energies, and the Laboratoire de Physique théorique et Hautes Energies with internationally recognized research programs in theoretical and observational cosmology, (astro-)particle physics, and theoretical and experimental high energy physics. The Institute's mission is to advance foundational questions on the origin, constituents, dynamics, and fate of the Universe. The research at the Lagrange Institute can be summarized in 3 central questions:
• What was the physics of the Beginning?
• What is the physics of the dominant constituents of the Universe, described through the placeholder terms "dark matter" and "dark energy?"
• How do we understand the non-linear dynamics and evolution of structures in the Universe from cosmic origin to cosmic fate?
