The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University, Sweden, invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position in theoretical particle physics starting in 2019, preferably not later than October.

A focus-project is “QCD - from hard to soft quark-gluon processes” that addresses the major unsolved problem within the Standard Model. Phenomenology of theories beyond the Standard Model is also central in our group’s research.

The senior members of the HEP theory/phenomenology group are Gunnar Ingelman and Rikard Enberg, and an additional associate professor is currently under recruitment. Junior group members are two postdocs and two graduate students. Collaborations within the department exist with Stefan Leupold in hadron theory and with the large hep-th theory group as well as with the experimental groups in ATLAS and IceCube. See for more information about the department and this link for more information about the theory group.

The successful candidate will be appointed for two years based on a scholarship grant from the Carl Trygger Foundation and there are also funds for travel and computer resources.

The candidate must have a doctoral degree in Physics or equivalent. Experience of particle physics phenomenology is required, in particular concerning QCD and preferably also of physics beyond the Standard Model. Relevant programming skills are required and proficiency in written and spoken English is necessary.

Uppsala University aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.
