Postdoctoral Research Associate in lattice field theory and quantum computing/simulation
Department of Mathematical Sciences
Job reference: 052406
£36,386 - £42,155 pa
Closing date: 20 December 2022, 23:30

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Liverpool invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in lattice field theory and quantum computing/simulation. This position will be part of the project "New Frontiers of Lattice Field Theory" funded by UK Research and Innovation and led by David Schaich. The post is initially available for 2 years starting October 2023, with possible extension for an additional year.

Applicants must have (by the starting date) a PhD and a record of research excellence in lattice field theory, quantum computing/simulation or closely related areas. Teaching will not be required, and opportunities will be available to develop independent research. Liverpool has strong research groups in lattice field theory, other areas of theoretical physics (including collider phenomenology, high-order perturbation theory, dark matter, and string theory), and experiments including g-2, ATLAS, LHCb, LZ and DUNE. We will host the 2024 Lattice conference. Other faculty members working in lattice field theory at Liverpool are P. Buividovich, S. Hands and P.E.L. Rakow, with N. Garron at nearby Hope University.

The application deadline of 23:30 GMT on 20 December will be enforced by Liverpool's e-recruitment system. Applications must be submitted through this system, where the full job description is available, by searching for job reference 052406 at Applications should include the online form, cover letter / 'supporting statement', CV with list of publications, research statement, and contact information for at least three professional references. Letters of recommendation from these references will be requested at the appropriate time during the search. For informal enquiries please feel free to contact David Schaich (

We are part of Liverpool's School of Physical Sciences, which is an Athena SWAN Silver Award holder and is committed to encouraging, developing and supporting women in their research and academic careers. We are working to create an inclusive environment which values a diverse workforce and we recognise that many individuals value flexibility in their work/life balance. We strongly encourage applications from groups underrepresented within our workforce, in particular women.
