Research Associate in High Energy Physics




Cambridge U.


Paula Álvarez Cartelle

Closing Date:


Deadline: June 24th, 2022


The aim of the role is to analyse data from the LHCb experiment with focus on the study of rare decay modes in which significant anomalies with respect to the predictions of the Standard Model have been observed. The LHCb group at Cambridge has played a leading role in measurements of lepton flavour universality ratios, decay rates and angular observables in rare B meson decays. The successful candidate is expected to take an active role in LHCb data analysis in these or other associated areas with the potential to observe physics beyond the Standard Model. This is one of several Research Associate positions at the University of Cambridge, University of Bristol and Imperial College London to create a team to work closely with faculty from all three institutes.
