Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate in Neutrino Physics.

This is a post to work on long-baseline neutrino oscillation analyses with the T2K experiment. The T2K experiment is a world-leading experiment driving measurements of neutrino oscillation mixing parameters and CP-violation searches. The Royal Holloway group has leading roles in these oscillation measurements and in determination of the impact of systematic uncertainties from neutrino cross sections. 

The post holder will help lead new analyses of T2K near detector data for oscillation analyses. They will develop new samples both from existing data and from the upgrade of the near detector. They will develop the appropriate systematic uncertainties for the data and carry out the analyses. 

The post holder will also contribute to ongoing operations of the experiment and development of the analysis software environments. 

They will also contribute to the research life of the group through collaboration with postgraduate students, other research associates, and academics.

The holder of this post will be expected to help produce independent and original research, to submit publications to refereed journals, and to work together with and supervise MSci and PhD students.

  1. The successful applicant will have a PhD in Experimental Particle Physics or a closely related area, as well as prior experience relevant to one or more of the following: 
  2. High level statistical analysis in particle physics, especially Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques
  3. Experience with neutrino cross section measurement or phenomenology
  4. Detector simulation and/or analysis framework software development

The duration of the post is 2.5 years in the first instance, with the possibility of extension subject to the availability of funding.  The post holder will be employed for the duration of the post by Royal Holloway, University of London, which offers a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including generous annual leave.  

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Dr Asher Kaboth at
