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