Description:

Theoretical physicist in the areas of collider physics, QCD, beyond the Standard Model, heavy flavor physics and astroparticle physics/cosmology.

Introduction

We are looking for a theoretical physicist in the areas of quantum field theory, string theory, particle physics phenomenology and astrophysics/cosmology. Our search will be targeted preferentially towards a theoretical physicist in the field of astrophysics/cosmology.

 

The objectives of the Theoretical Physics Department are:

 

  • To develop new theoretical ideas aimed at understanding the fundamental constituents and forces of nature.
  • To develop their relevance for the experimental programme of CERN and to take full advantage of the stimulating environment of a large laboratory.
  • To contribute to the general scientific culture at CERN through active participation in the various training programmes and promotion of scientific events on site.

 

Functions

Your main functions will include:

 

  • Making significant contributions to theoretical research related to elementary particle physics.
  • Participating in and initiating a large variety of activities within the Theoretical Physics Department and possibly in collaboration with the experimental physicists working at CERN.
  • Taking part in CERN committees and study groups.
  • Helping maintain continued contacts with the outside scientific community.

 

Qualification required

PhD in the field of Physics, or equivalent.
