Grade 7 £33,199 - £39,609

The Department of Physics seeks to appoint an exceptional researcher as a Research Associate to work in the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology (IPPP). Candidates should have research interests in the field of particle physics phenomenology.

The successful candidate will have an important role to play in the research of the IPPP.

It is essential that the successful candidates have a PhD, or be working towards submitting a PhD, in Theoretical Particle Physics, or a closely related field, and will have demonstrated strength and independence in research in theoretical particle physics appropriate to their experience.

The candidate will also have good interpersonal and communication skills, and can work effectively with people at all levels of seniority and of different nationalities.

The successful applicants will have excellent research records in one or more areas of particle physics phenomenology with particular preference given to candidates specialising in higher order computations in perturbative QCD and precision collider phenomenology. They will have an important role to play in the maintaining of the Institute as a world class centre for phenomenology research and a key facility for the UK particle physics community.

Applications from candidates with a strong record of engagement with experimental groups are encouraged.

This role is fixed term for 6 months.
