Position Description:    

*** the listing date or deadline for this position has passed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Department of Physics at the University of Milano-Bicocca invites applications for a three-year researcher position (RTDA) in Theoretical Physics starting in the Fall 2024. The research activity will be in the field of particle phenomenology. The main research lines of our group focus on higher-order calculations, shower Monte Carlo generators and resummation, hence particular emphasis will be given to candidates mastering theory and precision phenomenology of fundamental interactions, especially concerning physics at the LHC and future colliders. The researcher is expected to teach courses for the Physics degree, at either the Bachelor or Master level (around 42 hours/year).

The deadline for applications is November 26, 2023 (26-11-2023, 23:59 CET).

Applications can ONLY be accepted if submitted through the official website

as detailed in the official call

Although not exclusively, the main focus for this position will be on the computation of electroweak corrections for processes at hadron (and possibly lepton) colliders, on the development of methods to match fixed- and all-order computations, on the interplay between electroweak and strong corrections, and on the simulation of such effects within Monte Carlo event generators (such as POWHEG/MiNLO and Geneva). Candidates with expertise in one or more of the above topics are particularly encouraged to apply.

The research interests of the Theory group at Milan-Bicocca & INFN cover a wide variety of subjects including Collider Phenomenology, Lattice QCD, String Theory, Statistical Physics, and Cosmology. Currently the Phenomenology group has 3 faculty members (Alioli, Oleari, Re), 5 postdocs, and 1 Ph.D student. An assistant professor will join the group in 2024. The position is partially funded by the PRIN project "High precision phenomenology at the LHC: combining strong and electroweak corrections in all-order resummation and in Monte Carlo event generators" in collaboration with INFN Pavia (M. Chiesa) and the University of Milano (G. Ferrera). There will be the opportunity of working in close collaboration with the other nodes of the project.

The salary range for the position is competitive with European standards. A generous travel allowance is also foreseen. More information on the activities of the Theory group can be found on the web-page

The successful applicant must have a Ph.D in theoretical physics at the time of application. In addition to their CV with the list of publications and three reference letters, applicants can also supply a short research statement detailing their specific qualifications.

The University of Milan-Bicocca values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. Therefore we would particularly welcome applications from the relevant group of potential candidates.
