The role:

As an Assistant Professor in one of the UK’s very best Physics departments, you will be based in the internationally recognised Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology. Housed in three floors of the purpose-built Ogden Centre, the Institute is the nation’s national centre for Phenomenology. You will find it an inspiring place to work. Here, you will produce exceptional research in particle physics phenomenology, while providing outstanding research-led and small group teaching and forging strong links with experimental groups. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you have expertise in Neutrino physics, Beyond-the-Standard model physics, or both.

You’ll need:

  • A good first-degree, complemented by a PhD in Theoretical Particle Physics or a related subject (either completed, or currently in progress).
  • The ability to produce world-class research in the field of Particle Physics Phenomenology, including a research plan which supports the activities of the department.
  • Proof that you have contributed to research groups and can mentor early career researchers.
  • The confidence to supervise PhD students.
  • Willingness to develop successful research project proposals, with the scope to secure funding or generate income.
  • Experience of delivering high-quality teaching across lectures and in smaller study groups, with the ability attain fellowship of the HEA.
  • Confident leadership and communication skills, with the willingness to work collaboratively as part of a team.

If you haven’t specifically met the above criteria but have recently completed or are concluding your PhD and feel you have the skills needed to do so, then you are invited to apply for the role at grade 7.
