A postdoctoral research associate is sought to join the the South-Eastern Particle Theory Alliance (SEPTA), a consortium joining Royal Holloway, University of London, University College London and the University of Sussex. The post holder will be based at the University of Sussex and expected to perform research relevant to the activities of the Collider and Low Energy Phenomenology research area, whose members are Andrea Banfi, Frank Deppisch (UCL), Stephan Huber, Sebastian Jaeger, Nikolas Kauer (RHUL), and Veronica Sanz.
We are particularly interested in candidates working on collider BSM phenomenology, perturbative QCD, flavour physics and effective field theory, and/or BSM model building, and the post holder will be encouraged to interact with SEPTA members at Sussex as well as the London-based partners. Further SEPTA activities include particle physics of the early universe, gravitational waves, Dark Matter, Neutrino Physics, and models of quantum gravity.
Applicants will also benefit from the close links to and to the Experimental Particle Physics groups at Sussex, UCL and RHUL, the Sussex Astronomy Centre, and from the NExT Institute, a regional particle physics alliance in the South-East of England including Sussex and RHUL, the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, and the University of Southampton.
