Research Fellow (71196-0220)

University of Warwick - Department of Physics

Location: Coventry, Geneva - Switzerland
Salary: £30,942 to £40,322 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 14th February 2020
Closes: 15th March 2020
Job Ref: 1861721

Full time, fixed term position for up to 2 years, ending no later than 30 September 2022.

This post is subject to review after the first year.

The Elementary Particle Physics Group at the University of Warwick seeks to appoint an outstanding individual to join its effort on the ATLAS experiment. The Warwick group is actively involved in ATLAS physics analysis, in trigger support and development and in the ITk tracker upgrade project. The group is involved in QCD hadronization studies, CKM matrix measurement (Vcb), Higgs boson studies (ôô, WW and boosted bb modes) and searches for BSM physics (LLPs, vector boson resonances, BSM Higgs).

It is expected that you will contribute to two main aspects of the Group's activities on the ATLAS project, as well as guiding students: the support of the development and implementation of the Run 3 high-level trigger, and a physics activity preferably aligned with the groups existing interests.

The trigger activity will require you to be based at the CERN laboratory with occasional visit to Warwick.

You should have, or should be about to obtain, a PhD. in experimental particle physics or another relevant subject. You will have a good grounding in and general knowledge of particle physics.

Experience of LHC-like trigger systems and modern data analysis techniques for particle physics experiments would be welcomed, as would good working knowledge of C++ and Python.

You will be an excellent communicator capable of working effectively both independently and as part of a research team.

You will possess excellent planning and time management skills to ensure your research objectives are achieved effectively.

If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£30,046). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of the level 6 of the University grade structure (£30,942).

Interested candidates are encouraged to direct informal inquiries to Professor William Murray (
