Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Particle Physics working on higher order QCD calculations and precision collider phenomenology.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 2 years, with the possibility of extension for a further year.

This project will develop innovative techniques for higher order QCD calculations, and apply them to the study of key collider processes. The successful candidate will work on several theoretical aspects relevant for higher order QCD calculations, e.g. multi-loop amplitude techniques or infrared subtraction schemes, and will develop phenomenological predictions for high precision collider investigations. Duties will include collaborating on research publications, presenting papers at conferences and meetings, and representing the group at external events. The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.

Applicants should hold, or be close to completion of a PhD, in physics or a related field. A strong background in perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics at particle colliders is desirable. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a capacity for independent research work and should have a publication record commensurate with career stage.

Please direct enquiries about the role to Fabrizio Caola ( ).

Candidates must submit applications online via: You will be required to upload a statement of research interests, publication list, CV and details of three referees as part of your online application. Referees will need to submit references to Academicjobsonline.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 10 December 2018 can be considered.
