The University of Liverpool is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher to support our strong and growing programme on accelerator-based neutrino physics. The Liverpool neutrino group is involved in data analysis for existing experiments, in the design and construction of future experiments, and in the development of experimental and theoretical techniques to study the properties of neutrinos.
The Liverpool group has a strong involvement in the global LArTPC neutrino programme. We participate in the DUNE and SBND experiments at FNAL, as well as in novel R&D efforts (ARIADNE) pioneering optical readout using fast imaging cameras. In SBND, we play key roles on commissioning and in preparations for the physics exploitation phase starting in 2024. In DUNE, we had a leading role delivering the ProtoDUNE Single Phase demonstrator at CERN, we are contributing to the DAQ effort, and we are leading the APA Consortium. We contribute to well-known phenomenological efforts bridging over the gap between theory and experiment, by coordinating the development of the GENIE Monte Carlo simulation used by all neutrino experiments and leading the GENIE global analysis of neutrino scattering data. We have extensive experience in high-profile neutrino oscillation analyses, and we are coordinating the development of the VALOR oscillation analysis framework.
To support this programme of work, we are looking for candidates who are in possession of a PhD in particle physics or are in the final stages of submitting a thesis for examination, and who have a good track record in high profile physics analyses. A direct experience with LArTPC detectors and the analysis of LArTPC data, a strong theoretical background, familiarity with neutrino interaction phenomenology, recent data and the GENIE Monte Carlo simulation will be beneficial.
The post is available on a fixed term basis from 1 May 2023 until 30 September 2025.
Please contact Professor Costas Andreopoulos e-mail: C.Andreopoulos@liverpool.ac.uk and Professor Christos Touramanis e-mail: C.Touramanis@liverpool.ac.uk for all enquiries.
Any applicants who are still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30. Upon written confirmation that they have been successful in being awarded their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7, spine point 31 from the date of their award.
