Applications are invited for a temporary lectureship in particle physics (24  months) working on the LHCb Experiment. The position is supported by a grant from STFC to support research and teaching activities at Manchester while Prof. Parkes is LHCb Spokesperson.

We are seeking to appoint a particle physicist with an excellent record of research and publications in heavy-flavour data analysis and/or detector development. The group is active in a range of physics working groups and you are invited to bring your own distinctive programme. The group is active on the VELO Upgrade I and II and on the Mighty Tracker CMOS detector concept for Upgrade II.

At Manchester, you will join the Particle Physics Group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy (P&A). In addition to our activites on LHCb, the group is also involved in the ATLAS experiment, g-2 and Mu2E experiments, and SuperNEMO and Fermilab Neutrino experiments. The group benefits from a strong theory group, including a member specialising in flavour physics.

You will contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching duties within the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Contributions both to teaching in the candidate’s research area and general undergraduate teaching will be expected.
