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 experiment at the LHC.

The Warwick EPP Group was founded in 2004 and has grown to a total of 14 academics (including a Royal Society, ERC and three STFC Rutherford Fellows), driving a research programme that covers Energy Frontier Physics, Quark Flavour Physics, Neutrino Physics, Dark matter and 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 who coordinates our knowledge exchange and commercialisation activities.

We are keen to hear from physicists with a track record in LHC exploitation and an interest in future collider projects. We are open to consider research plans that mesh closely with our on-going activities or from those who may open new future opportunities for the ATLAS group. We are involved in a measurement of Vcb through top decay, in studying the discovered Higgs in ôô and bb states, in fragmentation analysis in minimum bias events, and in searches for new Higgs bosons, including a long-lived A decaying to bb. The group are heavily involved in both developing the high-level trigger for high luminosity running and the quality control and construction of strip modules for the Silicon Tracker upgrade. We would 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 phase II. 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. Teaching and administration duties are reduced during the probationary period. 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 applications and enquiries from all suitably qualified candidates. All posts can be held full- or part-time.

Candidates must submit their application via the online application system, although informal enquiries can be addressed to the Head of Department, Professor Mark Newton.

Full details of the duties and selection criteria for this role can be found in the vacancy advert on the University of Warwick’s jobs pages. You will be routed to this when you click on the Apply button.
