Post-doctoral or senior researcher in particle physics (muon g-2 and mu2e)




Liverpool U.


Prof. Joost Vossebeld

Closing Date:


Deadline: July 4th, 2022


The University of Liverpool is seeking to recruit a highly motivated post-doctoral or senior researcher for its precision muon physics programme at the g-2 and Mu2e experiments at Fermilab. You should have a PhD in physics and a track record on physics analysis in muon precision or similar experiments. Experience with the development, construction, commissioning or operation of tracking detectors or Germanium detectors for particle or nuclear physics experiments will be beneficial.
For the Fermilab g-2 experiment, Liverpool built the low mass straw tracking detectors and continues to support their operation and to ensure their optimal use in the physics exploitation of the experiment. In addition, the group has a deep involvement in the headline measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon as well as a measurement of the muon's electric dipole moment. For the forthcoming Mu2e experiment, Liverpool delivers the high-purity Germanium detectors for the Stopping Target Monitor (STM).
You will participate in the operation for the g-2 experiment and the analysis of its data towards the measurement of the muon anomalous magnetic moment and the muon electric dipole moment. In addition, they will contribute to preparations for the start-up of the Mu2e experiment. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the longer-term muon precision programme in Liverpool. You should have a PhD in particle physics. The position is funded through the Liverpool Particle Physics Consolidated Grant and is initially available until 30 September 30th, 2025. Extension of the post beyond this date will be subject to a future applications for continued funding.
