Applications are invited for several postdoctoral positions in lattice field theory at the Centre de Physique Théorique (CPT) in Marseille, France. The employer is Aix-Marseille Université (AMU), and the location of the positions is at the CPT, a Mixed Research Unit of CNRS (UMR 7332) associated with 2 universities: Aix-Marseille Université and Université de Toulon. These positions are funded by a grant from the Aix-Marseille University Initiative of Excellence (A*Midex).
One position starts in January 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter) and the other positions begin in fall 2020. All positions are initially for two years with possible extensions to three years.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Theoretical Particle Physics and will be expected to contribute to the research effort of CPT's lattice QCD group. This group's faculty members are Antoine Gérardin, Laurent Lellouch and Savvas Zafeiropoulos and our research interests include tests of the Standard Model and the search for new, fundamental physics. Of particular relevance for the postdoctoral positions are nucleon physics and the muon anomalous magnetic moment. The lattice group is part of CPT's Particle Theory team to whom Aoife Bharucha, Jérôme Charles, Marc Knecht and Eduardo de Rafael also belong. CPT further has strong teams in the related subjects of Cosmology and Quantum Gravity.
Candidates with a Ph.D. in Physics and with expertise in fields mentioned above are encouraged to send their application including a CV, a list of publications and a statement of research interests. Please also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent independently. For the position starting in early 2020, the candidate should also provide a possible starting date. Applications should be sent to antoine.gerardin[at]cpt.univ-mrs.fr and laurent.lellouch[at]univ-amu.fr quoting the reference PD1_AMIDEX for the first position (starting in January 2020) and PD2_AMIDEX for the other positions (starting in fall 2020).
The deadlines for applying are 15 October 2019 for the first position and 15 November 2019 for the others positions. Late applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
Salary will be in the range €29,600 - €34,700 (annual gross salary), the first year of contract; depending on experience; with a bonus on the second year of contract.
For further information, please write directly to antoine.gerardin[at]cpt.univ-mrs.fr and/or laurent.lellouch[at]univ-amu.fr
