Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

Applications are invited for up to five Postdoctoral Research Associates in Theoretical Particle Physics at the University of Edinburgh, to work in the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics.

Candidates are expected to have, or to be working towards a PhD in theoretical particle physics and proven expertise and technical abilities required to undertake world class research. For these particular posts we seek theorists who will support our current research in collider physics, gauge theory amplitudes, PDFs, final state MCs, lattice QCD, flavour physics, or indeed any aspect of work related to the standard model of particle physics or its possible extensions. Strong candidates working in any of these areas are encouraged to apply, since we expect to make a broad range of appointments. One of the positions will be funded by the ERC project “QCD for the future of particle physics (QCDforfuture)“. All positions will initially be for two years, with possible extension to three.

For further information please contact Prof. Richard Ball (r.d.ball@ed.ac.uk), Prof. Peter Boyle (paboyle@ph.ed.ac.uk), or Dr Jenni Smillie (j.m.smillie@ed.ac.uk).

Salary will be at UE07 in the range £32,004 - £38,183, depending on experience.

In addition to their application on AJO, all candidates must also complete a University of Edinburgh application form: this may be found at http://www.ed.ac.uk/human-resources/jobs by following the link to 'Academic vacancies', 'search vacancies', and then entering the vacancy ref 038153. The closing date for applications on this website is 04 January 2017.
