Postdoc Position in High Energy Physics at Imperial College London

Imperial College London, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a postdoctoral associate position in high energy. The funds for this position are available for three years. The deadline for applying is March 26, 2019.

Applications are invited for an excellent opportunity to work on the COMET muon-to-electron conversion experiment at J-PARC, Japan. You will be based in London but the position will require regular travel to Japan and Malaysia. Other UK and foreign travel is likely to be required.

The position will involve contributing to the construction and analysis of the first phase of the COMET experiment and R&D activities for the second phase. The emphasis will be on the development of modern methods, including those which employ FPGAs, GPUs and HPC facilities and Machine Learning to the online detector systems and offline analyses, working closely with experts at Imperial and in Malaysia and Japan. The Imperial COMET group has leadership roles in the experiment, in particular in the DAQ systems and triggering, and physics analysis including event reconstruction as well as accelerator and beam-line studies.

You will hold a PhD in Physics or have an equivalent level of professional qualifications and experience.

This is a fixed term position for up to three years available immediately.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 34,397 – 37,486 per annum.

The Imperial College High Energy Physics Group has a strong ongoing experimental programme encompassing the CMS and LHCb experiments at the LHC; the T2K, Super-Kamiokande and future Hyper-Kamiokande experiments in Japan; the search for sterile neutrinos with SoLid in Belgium; the MICE experiment in the UK; the search for dark matter with the LUX-ZEPLIN experiment in the US; the search for charged lepton flavour violation with COMET in Japan; and SHiP and SuperNEMO activities. There are also significant accelerator, phenomenology and Grid computing programmes.
