Lecturer in Lattice QCD - Southampton High Energy Physics Group (SHEP)
University of Southampton, UK

The Southampton High Energy Physics Group seeks to appoint a tenured lecturer (subject to probation) with an established research record in lattice field theory, a vision for their future research programme and the ability to share your knowledge with clarity and enthusiasm.

You will join our wide-ranging programme in lattice QCD covering flavour physics, hadronic structure and algorithm development. We are part of the RBC-UKQCD Collaboration and work closely with colleagues from the UK, Switzerland, USA, Denmark, Germany and Japan. You will join us in exploiting DiRAC supercomputing resources in the UK and supercomputers in other countries. A further central interest of the group is lattice holographic cosmology, combining ideas from holography and lattice QFT.

The members of staff undertaking research in lattice field theory in Southampton are Professor Jonathan Flynn, Professor Andreas Jüttner, Professor Chris Sachrajda and Professor Kostas Skenderis.

The lattice activities are part of the Southampton High-Energy-Physics group (SHEP) with wider research interests in physics beyond the standard model, particle physics and cosmology, neutrino physics, b-quark and kaon phenomenology, exact renormalization group, extra-dimensional models of the weak interactions, weak interaction corrections at high energies, twistor methods, holography, strings and branes, and high density QCD.
