The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University in Sweden seeks to appoint
a tenure track position as assistant professor (associate senior lecturer) in experimental
astroparticle physics. The position can be held for a maximum of six years. Applicants who
have obtained a doctoral degree or achieved the equivalent competence in five years or less
prior to the end of the application period will be given priority.

An assistant professor can apply for promotion to associate professor (senior lecturer). The
application will be evaluated according to criteria for promotion established by the Faculty
Board. The criteria include excellence in both teaching and research.

Astroparticle physics research at Uppsala University has strong couplings to the IceCube
neutrino observatory. We now intend to develop our activities by also including radio-
detection of neutrinos at extreme energies. Owing to their properties, high-energy neutrinos
have a unique potential to pinpoint the mysterious, violent accelerators of ultra-high-energy
cosmic rays. Our research group currently includes 3 faculty members and two PhD students.
We are looking for an outstanding candidate with demonstrated research expertise within
experimental astroparticle physics or closely related subjects, in particular different aspects
relevant for detection of high-energy neutrinos. Experience of and interest for development of
future detectors for cosmic neutrinos with energies from 50 PeV and above is a merit. We
would like a candidate able to initiate and lead projects, make decisions and take
responsibility, and with ability to collaborate internationally.

The position includes teaching, research and administration, with teaching typically at the
level of 25% of full time.

Uppsala University strives to be an inclusive workplace that promotes equal opportunities and
diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and from people of all
backgrounds.
