The Experimental Particle Physics group at Lancaster University is seeking to appoint a Research Associate or Senior Research Associate to join the Tokai to Kamioka (T2K) experiment. The preferred candidate will be appointed to the appropriate position (Senior Research Associate or Research Associate) based on their skills and experience.
T2K is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment situated in Japan, that uses an intense beam of muon (anti)neutrinos to make precision measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters and interaction cross sections. Within the T2K collaboration, the Lancaster group specialises in developing samples for inclusion in the near-detector fitting framework for the oscillation analysis. The successful applicant will make significant contributions to the development of new near detector selections and sample categories for use in the T2K oscillation analysis and will contribute to on-site activities in Japan related to the near detector.
You would join on an indefinite contract; however, the role remains contingent on external funding, which at this time runs until 30/09/2025.
