Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Particle Physics (BSM/DM)
Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Particle Physics (BSM/DM) at the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics of the University of Oxford, to work in the Particle Theory Group, supported by STFC. The post is available for two years from 01-Oct-2018.

This project will investigate the phenomenology of extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics, with particular focus on astrophysical and cosmological aspects e.g. candidates for dark matter. The successful candidate will carry out research in theoretical particle physics within the general areas supported by the STFC grant.

Applicants should possess, or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in physics or a related field, and a strong background in theoretical physics. Previous experience in the field of Beyond-Standard Model/Dark Matter phenomenology will be an advantage. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a capacity for independent research work and should have a publication record commensurate with career stage. The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to Prof Subir Sarkar (

The closing date for applications is 12:00 noon on 8 December 2017.
