Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Particle Physics (working on QCD and collider phenomenology) at the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics of the University of Oxford, to work in the Particle Theory Group, supported by STFC. The post is available for two years from 01-Oct-2020.

This project will deepen our understanding of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) at particle colliders. Possible avenues of investigation include, but are not restricted to, studies of parton distribution functions, central exclusive production, scattering amplitudes and Feynman integrals, higher order corrections, parton shower development, and phenomenological studies at the LHC and future colliders.

The successful candidate will report to Fabrizio Caola, Lucian Harland-Lang, Gavin Salam or Lorenzo Tancredi, the post holder is a member of a research group with responsibility for carrying out research work in QCD and collider phenomenology. Duties include managing own academic research and administrative activities, adapting existing and developing new research methodologies, presenting papers and representing the research group at external meetings and seminars.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or be close to completion in physics or a related field and ideally have a strong background in QCD and collider phenomenology. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a capacity for independent research work and should have a publication record commensurate with their career stage.

The post holder will have the opportunity to teach.

You will be required to upload a CV (including a list of publications) and a brief statement of research interests as part of your application. You will also be asked to provide details of at least three referees. Candidates should ensure that referees submit all references to by the closing date.
