The Department of Physics are looking to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Dark Matter Searches.

The post is fixed term for 2 years and full time.

This post will involve working with a team applying multidisciplinary skills in the general areas of detector development, software development, detector characterisation and physics analysis. The post-holder will work with the other members of the Oxford group, other UK university groups, International collaborators and with the host laboratory to support and develop the group’s research. Specifically, the post-holder will be expected to contribute to the development of dark matter search analysis tools, to support students in the group working on related analyses, and to play a role in integration and commissioning of the DarkSide-20k detector at LNGS.

The Monroe Research group is a vibrant team consisting of one senior academic, 1 research fellow, 3 postdoctoral researchers, 8 PhD students, 2 graduate research assistants, and 1 technician. Within the Particle Physics sub-Department, the broader group includes dark matter research on the LZ, ATLAS, LSST and future XLZD and AION experiments, and cognate research employing liquid argon detectors in the accelerator neutrino group includes the Micro Boone, SBND and DUNE experiments.

A University degree (or close to completing) at PhD level in particle physics or a closely related discipline is essential.

The post holder will have the opportunity to teach.

We appreciate the post holder beginning duties as soon as possible, but are open to discussion. The post may involve regular travel to LNGS and/or Boulby, and there are opportunities for long-term attachment.

Interested applicants are welcome to contact Jocelyn Monroe (jocelyn.monroe@physics.ox.ac.uk) or Elizabeth Leason (Elizabeth.leason@physics.ox.ac.uk) for more information.

Only applications received promptly by 12:00 noon UK time on 15 July 2024 can be considered. Please read the “Person Specification and Job Description” before preparing your application.
