The Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics Group (GEFAN) at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP)is seeking a candidate for one postdoctoral position, to work with neutrino physics. The group is active on both long and short-baseline neutrino experiments of the Neutrino Division from Fermilab, including LArIAT, SBND, ProtoDUNE, and DUNE, with responsibilities varying from hardware R&D to data analyses. The successful applicant will develop Monte Carlo simulations, cross-sections calculations, and also studies of detector performance.

The GEFAN group has six researchers working on neutrino physics: Ernesto Kemp, Ettore Segreto, Ana Machado, Orlando Peres, Marcelo Guzzo, Pedro de Holanda, and several Master and Ph.D. students. The University of Campinas (UNICAMP) is a public university in the State of São Paulo. It is one of the top-ranking Brazilian universities as well as in Latin America.

The fellowship is provided by the Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP, which is a public foundation located in São Paulo, Brazil. The Post-Doctorate fellowship is tax-free and includes a monthly stipend and research contingency funds (15% of the total stipend of the duration of the fellowship). The stipend of the FAPESP post-doctoral fellowship is R$ 7,373.10 (Brazilian currency). The position is for a period of 6 months, with the potential for extension for up to two additional years. Required qualifications: Ph.D. in particle physics, or relevant subject by the time of the appointment A strong record of accomplishments in experimental particle physics Strong computing skills, including experience with ROOT, C++, and Python Experience with reconstruction techniques: particle tracks, energy, and particle identification Experience with the computing framework of large experimental collaborations will be considered a plus.

Interested candidates should submit the following documents, addressed to Prof. Ernesto Kemp ( Cover letter, Curriculum vitae, A publication list of relevant articles from the last 3 years, explicating the contribution in each work, A minimum of three letters of reference.

To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be received by November 29, 2021. However, applications will still be considered until the position is filled. Contact: Kemp, Ernesto (
