Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Particle Physics working on QCD and collider phenomenology, funded by the hipQCD ERC project.

The position is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 2 years, with the possibility of extension for 1 further year.

This project will develop innovative theoretical techniques for high precision collider studies and will apply them to the study of key processes at the LHC and future colliders. The successful candidate will work on several theoretical aspects relevant for higher order QCD calculations, e.g. multi-loop amplitude techniques or infrared subtraction schemes, and will develop phenomenological predictions for high precision collider investigations.

Reporting to Fabrizio Caola, the post holder is a member of a research group with responsibility for carrying out research work on high precision collider predictions and Higgs boson phenomenology. Duties include managing own academic research and administrative activities, adapt existing and develop new research methodologies, present papers and represent the research group at external meetings and seminars.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or be close to completion in physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) at particle colliders. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a capacity for independent research work and should have a publication record commensurate with career stage.

The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.

You will be required to upload a CV (including a list of publications) and a brief statement of research interests as part of your application. You will also be asked to provide details of three referees. Candidates should ensure that referees submit all references to by the closing date. Documents submitted should be in PDF format and use the naming convention: APPLICANT SURNAME, FORENAME - REFEREE SURNAME,FORENAME”.

Please note that applicants will be considered only for the advertised recruitment. If they wish to be considered for any other similar positions advertised by the University, they must submit a separate application for those posts.
