Lecturer in Theoretical Physics (3 year)




U. Liverpool (main)


Edward Hardy

Closing Date:


Deadline: December 15th, 2021


The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Liverpool is seeking a Lecturer in the area of Theoretical Physics beyond the Standard Model. The post will be in the String Phenomenology and Beyond Standard Model research cluster, and is associated with Dr Edward Hardy's Future Leaders Fellowship funded research programme into new light hidden sector particles and the Quantum Sensors for Hidden Sector (QSHS) UK experimental collaboration.
You should have a PhD and an excellent track record in Theoretical Physics or related fields including frequent publications in internationally recognised journals, be enthusiastic to teach both small and large groups, and to take on student supervision. You will be supported and encouraged to attract external research funding, and you will play a part in the development of the department. No prior experience in the particular field of new light particles is required and we encourage applications from any field of Theoretical Particle Physics, but an interest in working in this area, and in developing connections with experimentalists and/or string theorists would be particularly welcome.
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, therefore this post may be taken up on a Part-Time (a minimum of 0.5 FTE) or Full-Time basis (including a Job Share). The post is available for 3 years from September 2022.
