Position Description:    

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University (UU) is hosting a 2 year Post-Doctoral (PD) position in particle physics phenomenology.

The research conducted at the Department of Physics and Astronomy encompasses a wide range of physics topics, distributed over ten divisions. The department is located in the Ångström laboratory and employs nearly 400 people, 125 of whom are doctoral students. It offers a broad physics curriculum to undergraduate and graduate students, participation in nationally and internationally leading projects for researchers and opportunities for partnership with industry and various outreach activities. The division of High Energy Physics (HEP) conducts research in theoretical and experimental particle physics as well as astroparticle physics.

The successful candidate will work in the Theoretical High Energy Physics (THEP) group, part of the HEP division, which at present consists of three senior faculty members, four postdocs, two PhD students and two long-term visitors. The present PD position profile will be aligned with the THEP research interests: Electro-Weak (EW) and Higgs physics, theories Beyond the Standard Model (BSM), hard and soft processes in QCD and hadron theory, EW phase transitions, connections to astrophysics and cosmology with a special emphasis on studying theories of Higgs Compositeness and their model realisations testable at colliders and elsewhere. Another PD researcher will be recruited concurrently with this position in overlapping research areas: see https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/27279.

Collaborations within the department exist with the Theoretical Physics group as well as the Experimental HEP groups working in ATLAS and IceCube. For more information on the department and the THEP group, see https://physics.uu.se and https://physics.uu.se/research/high-energy-physics/research-groups/thep, respectively.

The candidate should have a PhD degree in physics, theoretical physics, particle physics or similar, or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in these subjects. The degree needs to be obtained by the time of the decision on employment.

Advanced theoretical physics, in particular quantum field theory, particle physics and programming skills of relevance to the subject matter are required. Experience of particle physics phenomenology is necessary. Competence in numerical approaches to the description of particle physics processes would be advantageous.

The PD position is for two years, it will be supported through a scholarship from the Carl Trygger Foundation and the starting date is 1 September 2024 or as agreed. Note that this position will not lead to employment at UU, as the appointee will be considered a Visiting PD Fellow. Work location is the Ångström laboratory, Uppsala.

Applications should include a brief description of research interests and past experience, a CV as well as a list of publications. The candidates are encouraged to also provide at least two letters of recommendation and/or contact information for referees, all through AJO.

UU aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher scientific quality at all levels of the organisation.
