|Title:||Theoretical Physics - Lattice Field Theory/Lattice QCD|
|Location:||Liverpool U., Dept. Math.|
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Liverpool invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in lattice field theory and lattice QCD. This position will be part of our Fundamental Particle Physics group and funded by the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC).
Faculty members working in lattice field theory at Liverpool are P. Buividovich, P.E.L. Rakow and D. Schaich. The other Fundamental Particle Physics faculty members are M. Gorbahn, J. Gracey, I. Jack, T. Teubner and A. Vogt. There are several PhD students and postdocs in the group, and close ties exist with the String and BSM Phenomenology group and with experimental groups in the Department of Physics.
Applicants must have (by the starting date) a PhD in theoretical physics or a closely related subject, and a record of research excellence in lattice field theory. A PhD received in or after 2017 is preferred. Strong coding and data analysis skills will be highly valuable. Teaching will not be required, and opportunities will be available to develop independent research in addition to contributing to STFC-funded projects.
The application deadline is December 1st, 2020 at 23:30 (as enforced by the automatic application system) and the post is available for 2 years. The starting date is flexible but should be no later than October 1st, 2021. For inquiries about this position, please contact Pavel Buividovich (Pavel.Buividovich@liverpool.ac.uk).
The School of Physical Sciences is an Athena SWAN Silver Award holder and is committed to encouraging, developing and supporting women in their research and academic careers. We are working to create an inclusive environment which values a diverse workforce and we recognise that many individuals value flexibility in their work/life balance. We strongly encourage applications from groups underrepresented within our workforce, in particular women.
