TR 211

Strong-Interaction Matter under Extreme Conditions'

Dear prospective candidate for our Master scholarships,

Before you take a closer look at the website of the research centre, we would like to give you some basic information about it. Here is a short profile for your convenience: The Collaborative Research Center/Transregio 211 is concerned with the theoretical investigation of the properties of hot and dense matter under extreme conditions of temperature and density. Such conditions existed in the first few microseconds after the Big Bang and can be created today in the laboratory by colliding heavy atomic nuclei at the highest available energies, e.g. at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The theoretical methods cover a wide range: lattice-QCD calculations, relativistic fluid and magnetohydro dynamics, relativistic transport models, analytical methods like the Functional Renormalization Group. They are applied to heavy-ion collisions, neutron stars, and cosmological questions. Goethe University Frankfurt is the coordinating university of the SFB/TR 211 and participates in ten projects in these areas of theoretical physics within this research center. If you could imagine collaborating with and becoming part of this research group during  your Master Program at Goethe University and want to apply for the Master scholarship, click here for more detailed information: https://th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~strongmatter/ If you contact the research group please write “Goethe Goes Global - Master scholarships” in the reference line of your e-mail.
