Position Description:    

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

The Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology Group of the Department of Physics at King's College London offers two Research Associate (Postdoc) positions funded by the UK STFC, to start in Autumn 2020.

This position is for research on problems in particle astrophysics and cosmology, including dark matter, baryogenesis, models of inflation and possible sources of gravitational waves. This position has a duration of 2 years.

Successful candidates will be expected both to collaborate with existing members of the group and to lead their own research projects in these areas. We are particularly interested in candidates open to interacting with group members working on gravitational physics and applications of theoretical physics.

The selection process will include competency-based questions and a panel interview. Interviews are scheduled to be held in December 2019.

For an informal discussion to find out more about the roles please contact Prof. John Ellis,, or Prof Malcolm Fairbairn,

To apply for these roles we also require you to register and apply through the college HR system. To minimise your time spent on this procedure note that in this online interface we need only the absolute minimum information required by the system. The link to this lies here:-

The deadline for applications is midnight UK time on 8th December 2019.

Keywords: Theoretical Physics, Particle Physics, Collider Physics, Higgs, Beyond the Standard Model, Astroparticle Physics, Dark Matter, Baryogenesis, Inflation
