Position Description:    

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

The N3PDF group led by Stefano Forte at Milan University (Italy) invites applications for two postdoctoral positions. The positions are for two+one years, starting September 2019, 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, funded by an advanced ERC grant, 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 N3PDF group currently includes one assistant professor (Stefano Carrazza), two postdocs (Juan Cruz-Martinez and Christopher Schwan) and two PhD students. The high energy phenomenology group in Milan further includes Alessandro Vicini, Giancarlo Ferrera, and currently two postdocs (Stefano Di Vita and Narayan Rana). 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 10.
