Position Description:    

The Fermilab Particle Theory Department invites applications for postdoctoral research appointments starting in the fall of 2024. Postdoctoral research associates in the Fermilab Particle Theory Department are appointed for three years.

They are expected to perform self-directed theoretical physics research on topics of their own choosing and are encouraged to work with members of the senior scientific staff and other postdocs within the Theory Division. The Fermilab Particle Theory research program includes neutrino physics, perturbative QCD, lattice QCD, Higgs & flavor physics, collider phenomenology and physics beyond the standard model. Collaboration with members of the other two departments in the Theory Division (Astrophysics Theory and Quantum Theory) is encouraged and supported.

The senior scientific staff of the Particle Theory Department consists of John Campbell, Marcela Carena, Bogdan Dobrescu, George Fleming, Patrick Fox, Walter Giele, Roni Harnik, Stefan Hoeche, Andreas Kronfeld, Pedro Machado, Stephen Parke, Noemi Rocco, Ruth Van de Water and Michael Wagman.
