The Valencia Experimental Group of Astroparticles at IFIC (Valencia, Spain) has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral position in high-energy astroparticle physics within the KM3NeT & HAWC collaborations.

The contract is for one year with a possible extension of an additional year. The gross annual salary is 41 k€. The contract includes health insurance via the Spanish National Health System. The candidate will be based at IFIC. The candidate will be required to travel to other institutions involved in the KM3NeT and/or HAWC collaborations for meetings and workshops.

The candidate must hold a PhD in physics or astronomy. She/he should have excellent analysis and software skills, teamwork abilities and be fluent in English.

The candidate is expected to contribute to the search for high-energy cosmic ray sources. This involves combining data from the KM3NeT and HAWC observatories. Specifically, the candidate will work on developing analysis tools necessary for integrating data streams from both experiments. These tools will be based on existing analysis frameworks.

Interested physicists are invited to submit their application, including a cover motivation letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications and copies of university degrees. They should also arrange for three letters of recommendation. Applications must be submitted by January 31st, 2024. However, late applications may be considered until the position is filled. The selected candidate is expected to join the group during the spring of 2024.

IFIC is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace and fair employment practices.
