Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The theoretical high energy phenomenology group led by Stefano Forte at Milan University (Italy) invites applications for two postdoctoral positions, funded by the N3PDF ERC Advanced Grant. The positions are for two+one years, starting September 2018, and carry a competitive (negotiable) salary and a generous travel allowance.

Applicants from all areas of high energy phenomenology are invited to apply. The N3PDF project aims at the development of innovative theoretical and phenomenological results and techniques in perturbative QCD, machine learning, statistical modeling and inference, with the determination of parton distributions in mind as a non-exclusive goal.

Competence and a strong interest in one or more topics among higher-order QCD calculations and resummation, machine learning, Monte Carlo methods, computer science and mathematical physics would be a plus. An interest in interdisciplinary applications, and willingness to work in a team would be appreciated. Frequent interactions with the NNPDF collaboration are to be expected, but successful applicants will also be encouraged to pursue their own line of research.

The staff in the Milan group includes Stefano Forte, Alessandro Vicini, and Giancarlo Ferrera, currently two postdocs (German Sborlini and Stefano Di Vita) and three Ph.D. students. There are close contacts with the Milan-Bicocca phenomenology group and with the local string and statistical mechanics groups, as well as with the ATLAS and Borexino experimental groups. Applications are encouraged at any time, but in order to receive full consideration they should be submitted by December 20.
