PhD Studentship on ATLAS 2020: Higgs to tau CP

Higgs boson measurements:

Current measurements of the Higgs boson often assume its kinematic properties to be consistent with the Standard Model prediction. Differential cross-section measurements are performed to decrease the model dependence on the Standard Model. With the unprecedented dataset recorded with the ATLAS detector in Run 2 first differential measurements of the vector-boson fusion production mode can be set up in the decay of the Higgs boson to two tau leptons. Interesting distributions are the transverse momentum of the Higgs boson testing the Higgs boson coupling or the angle between the two leading jets testing the CP invariance of the Higgs boson.
