Assistant Professor in Experimental Particle Physics (81334-018)

University of Warwick - Department of Physics

The Department of Physics at the University of Warwick seeks to make an academic appointment in the area of Experimental Neutrino Physics. In addition, we invite applications from outstanding particle physicists who already hold an externally-funded research fellowship in any other research area of interest to the Particle Physics Group.

At Warwick, the broad EPP research agenda spans accelerator-based neutrino physics, non-accelerator neutrino physics, physics including heavy flavours at the Large Hadron Collider, accelerator science and detector research and development, as well as commercial spin-off ventures from our research programme.

In neutrino physics, we have activities in the following areas: physics analysis with the T2K experiment; hardware and software development for the future projects, DUNE and HYPER-K; design studies for high power neutrino beam targets; R&D for a future High Pressure Gas TPC; collaboration on the SuperNEMO project. Beyond neutrinos, we also work on physics analysis and trigger for ATLAS, ITk construction and trigger for the ATLAS upgrade, and on heavy flavour physics in LHCb. The Warwick EPP group currently numbers eight full-time academic faculty members, plus a Royal Society University Research fellow, together with twelve postdoctoral researchers, and 21 research students.

We invite applications from outstanding candidates in the area of experimental neutrino physics with the ability and drive to help us realise our ambitious plans for the future. We would particularly welcome applicants who will strengthen our activities in the design and construction of the next generation of neutrino experiments. They will also bolster our current group analysis activities. We also invite applications from exceptional candidates having interests aligned with any of our other areas of particle physics, who already hold an externally-funded research fellowship, or similar research funding.

Applicants should have an excellent track record in publishing internationally-leading research and a clear vision of how their work would complement our existing research strengths.

The Department of Physics will provide an exciting and highly supportive environment in which academics can develop their careers. At Warwick, Assistant Professor is a tenure track position leading to appointment as an Associate Professor after successful completion of probation. The University of Warwick maintains a global outlook, with collaborations around the world, and welcomes applicants of all nationalities. We are fully committed to equality of opportunity and encourage application and enquiries from all suitably qualified candidates.

Informal enquiries may be made to any of the following
Prof. Gary Barker (for neutrinos)
Prof. Paul Harrison (for ATLAS topics)
Prof. Tim Gershon (for heavy flavours)

Closing Date: 19 February 2018
