The Birmingham Particle Physics group has a vacancy for a Research Fellow working on detector operation and physics analysis within the NA62 experiment at CERN. The successful applicant will take significant responsibility for the maintenance and operation of the NA62 Cherenkov kaon tagger (KTAG) detector, will contribute to NA62 data collection, and will play a leading role in rare kaon decay measurements and publication of the results. The post holder will be based on in Birmingham and must be willing to travel and spend periods at CERN.
Role specifications include the following:
The Particle Physics group currently has 11 academic staff, 19 post-doctoral researchers and engineers, 5 support staff and 20 research students. Beyond kaon physics at NA62, our present activities include ATLAS and LHCb experiments at the LHC, dark matter experiments Darkside-20k, NEWS-G and MIGDAL, the future DUNE long-baseline neutrino experiment, and the future Brookhaven Electron Ion Collider. We operate substantial laboratory space, including a 200 m2 set of clean room facilities, and we maintain a Tier 2 site as part of the UK contribution to LHC world-wide distributed computing.
The School of Physics and Astronomy is an Institute of Physics Juno Champion since 2014 and holder of the Athena SWAN Silver Award.
