Position Description:    

The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) "Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs discovery", established by the German Research Foundation (DFG), is a joint venture of particle theorists from RWTH Aachen University, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), University of Siegen and Heidelberg University.

Scientists of the Collaborative Research Center conduct research in particle physics phenomenology broadly defined, including Higgs boson and top quark physics, QCD and hadron collider physics, B-physics and dark matter physics. Members of the CRC are also interested in developing theoretical tools aimed at advancing particle physics phenomenology, such as perturbative computations in quantum field theory, machine learning, effective field theories, global fits etc.

The Center invites applications for a number of postdoctoral positions in theoretical particle physics (hep-ph) with a starting date in the fall of 2023 or earlier.

Applications should be submitted via Academic Jobs Online (AJO) and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a short summary of research interests and future research plans. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference from senior scientists to be submitted through AJO.

All applicants should indicate the research areas of the CRC and/or names of principal investigators which an applicant would like to work on/with (several choices can be given). Information about the research projects of the CRC can be found at the following URL https://p3h.particle.kit.edu/research

The Collaborative Research Center values diversity and encourages women and members of groups underrepresented in academia to apply. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference if equally qualified. The deadline for applications is December 16, 2022. Later applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

More information about the Collaborative Research Center as well as particle theory groups at participating universities can be found at https://p3h.particle.kit.edu/ and further links there.

Inquiries about the Collaborative Research Center should be addressed to the spokesperson of the CRC Prof. Gudrun Heinrich gudrun.heinrich@kit.edu or to principal investigators of individual projects.
