Research Associate in Particle Physics
Oxford Road, Manchester

Job reference: S&E-14180

Location: Oxford Road, Manchester

Closing date (DD/MM/YYYY): 05/08/2019

Salary: £32,236 - £39,609 per annum (according to experience)

Employment type: Fixed Term

Division: Particle Physics

Hours per week: Full Time

Contract Duration: Available for 2 years with the possibility of up to two additional years of extension

The Particle Physics group at the University of Manchester has a vacancy for a Research Associate working on the LHCb experiment at the LHC at CERN. The work is funded through a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship to develop Real Time Analysis (RTA) techniques for the Square Kilometre Array and the Large Hadron Collider Beauty experiment.

You will be expected to work primarily on real time analysis and physics analyses at the LHCb experiment. The Manchester LHCb group currently has particularly strong activities in CP violation and mixing studies in the charm sector as well as in the study of rare decays. Your work will extend these activities to CP violation in the beauty sector, but we are also open to the introduction of new analysis activities.

The position requires a PhD or equivalent in particle physics. You will have experience in particle physics data analysis and software development for reconstruction, triggering or alignment and calibration activities. The position will be initially for a period of two years, with a possibility to be based at CERN for an extended period.

The School is strongly committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for gender equality in higher education. The School holds a Silver Award which recognises their good practice in relation to gender; including flexible working arrangements, family-friendly policies, and support to allow staff achieve a good work-life balance.
