Niels Bohr Institute  
Faculty of Science  
University of Copenhagen  
The Section of Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology of the Niels Bohr Institute is engaged in a broad range of research activities, often with a focus on the Standard Model of particle physics and its computational aspects in a perturbative context.  
We are seeking an outstanding candidate to carry forward work on the Standard Model and its possible extensions within the language of effective field theory, a subject now known as Standard Model Effective Field Theory (SMEFT). The ideal candidate must have contributed very significantly to this subject, must have helped shape and develop the field-theoretic framework, and must have demonstrated a complete understanding of the field theoretic subtleties involved in extending the Standard Model systematically in this manner. Experience in student supervision and interaction and collaboration with more junior post-docs is essential. A broad research background with contributions also in other areas of phenomenological importance, such as theories of baryogenesis, and contributions to cosmology on the basis of particle physics is also expected of the ideal candidate. A clearly demonstrated ability to attract research funding will also be considered of essential importance.  
Applicants are required to have university level teaching experience, documented teaching competencies and must be able to explain and reflect upon own teaching practice and portfolio. Formal pedagogical training or supervision equivalent to the University of Copenhagen teacher training programme for assistant professors is required.  
Duties include the applicant’s own research, development of the field, assessment tasks, grant applications, and research management such as supervision and training of research fellows and other staff. The successful applicant must also teach, supervise, prepare and participate in examinations, and fulfill other tasks requested by the Department.  
Assessment of applicants will primarily consider their level of documented, original scientific production at an international level, including contributions to developments in their field, as well as their documented teaching qualifications. Managerial and out-reach qualifications of applicants including ability to attract external funding will also be considered.  
Further information on the Department is linked at Inquiries about the position can be made to Head of Department Jan Westenkær Thomsen (  
The position is open from 1 June 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.  
The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
