Lancaster U.


Jarek Nowak

Closing Date:


Deadline: June 29th, 2022


The Lancaster neutrino group is seeking applications from enthusiastic candidates to work on the DUNE and MicroBooNE experiments. You will take up a leading role in the physics analysis for both experiments, focusing on measuring neutrino interactions with argon for the MicroBooNE and developing pattern recognition and simulation software for neutrino oscillations and CP violation measurements in DUNE. In addition, the post-holder will help with the supervision of PhD students and work closely within the broader Lancaster particle physics group.

Lancaster University is consistently ranked in the top 10 in the UK university league tables. It is located on a beautiful campus in the North-West of England, close to the Lake District National Park.

The Physics Department is strongly committed to fostering diversity within its community as a source of excellence, cultural enrichment, and social strength. We welcome those who would contribute to the further diversification of our department.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Jaroslaw Nowak (j.nowak@lancaster.ac.uk). 

This is a full-time post. You will join us on an indefinite contract; however, the role remains contingent on external funding, which, at this time, is due to come to an end on 31 March 2024. The extension of the funding is likely for the following two years. 

It is anticipated that the appointments will be made from 1 August 2022 or soon afterwards.
We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
