Location: Cambridge
Salary: £34,308 to £42,155 p.a.
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 24th November 2022
Closes: 12th December 2022
Job Ref: LE33800

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position in Lattice Field Theory, funded by the High Energy Physics group's STFC consolidated grant, to work on topics related to the interests of lattice theorists in the group. These include flavour physics, the spectroscopy, interactions and properties of hadrons, and scattering in a finite volume. The start date is 1st October 2023 (or subject to negotiation).

The post will be held in the DAMTP High Energy Physics group which has a range of research interests including: Quantum Field Theory, Particle Physics Phenomenology, String Theory, Lattice Field Theory, Cosmology and Solitons. The group has access to computer facilities in DAMTP and at the University's High Performance Computing Service, including large CPU and GPU clusters, and is able to apply for time at STFC's DiRAC, the UK supercomputing facility for particle physics, astronomy and cosmology. The successful candidate will have completed (or nearly completed) a PhD in Theoretical Physics. They will have demonstrated a capacity to produce world-class research and a proven track record of results in relevant areas of lattice QCD or related areas. 

The successful candidate will be expected to perform the following duties: develop and conduct individual and collaborative research projects; write up research work for presentation and publication; plan and manage their own research and administration, with guidance if required; translate knowledge of advances in the subject areas into research activity; continually update knowledge and understanding in the field. They must be able to communicate material of a technical nature and be able to build internal and external contacts. They may be asked to assist in the supervision of student projects, the development of student research skills, provide instruction, and plan and deliver seminars relating their research area. 

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
