The Department of Physics at the University of Warwick seeks to make an academic appointment in its Experimental Particle Physics (EPP) Group. We invite applications from outstanding particle physicists able to take a significant role in our research programme with the ATLAS detector at the LHC.
The Warwick EPP Group is the youngest in the UK and currently consists of 11 academics (including a Royal Society and an STFC Rutherford Fellow) driving a research programme that covers Energy Frontier Physics, Quark Flavour Physics, Neutrino Physics plus R&D developing accelerators and detectors for future experiments. Our research is supported by 11 PDRAs, a Group Research Engineer, technicians, graduate students and an STFC IPS Fellow.
The Warwick ATLAS Group, led by Prof. Bill Murray, have made substantial contributions to the ATLAS trigger and physics analysis and have held several coordination roles within the collaboration. A focus of the new appointment will be a substantial role in delivering aspects of Warwick’s responsibilities for the ATLAS upgrade. The group are heavily involved in both developing the HLT for high luminosity running and the quality control of strip module detectors for the Silicon Tracker upgrade. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates who have experience with the ATLAS upgrade project and who are motivated by the opportunity to exploit the detector for physics in LHC Run 3 and beyond. 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.
The Department of Physics provides 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, has 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.
The closing date for applications is 25 November 2018, with interviews being held at the University of Warwick on 13 December 2018.
Please direct all informal enquiries to Prof. Bill Murray (email@example.com)
