Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Linear Collider Beam Delivery Systems (FONT) (2 posts)

Particle Physics

Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Linear Collider Beam Delivery Systems (FONT) (2 posts)

Particle Physics, Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford

Grade 7: 29,837 - 36,661 p.a.

The John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science at the University of Oxford is seeking two highly qualified postdoctoral research assistants to be based in Oxford for work on development of beam delivery systems, and related beam dynamics, instrumentation, feedback and control systems, for application to future electron-positron colliders.

The John Adams Institute is one of the world leading centres in the area of beam delivery systems for future colliders. We contribute to the international design efforts on CLIC and ILC, and in particular to the design of very fast beam-based feedback, feed-forward and instrumentation/control systems via the Feedback On Nanosecond Timescales (FONT) project. The successful candidates will be involved in the design, development, deployment and operation of beam delivery and related systems, including the opportunity for periods of research at international beam test facilities.

The successful candidates will be employed by the University of Oxford full time for a fixed-term of 2 years in the first instance.

The successful candidates will hold a PhD in accelerator physics or a related field. Teaching duties up to 3 hours per week during University term may be required.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Philip Burrows p [dot] burrows [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.

Please read the "Person Specification and Job Description" before preparing your application. You will be required to upload a Curriculum Vita, a description of research experience and interests and the names and addresses of three referees as part of your online application. In addition you should arrange for the three letters of reference to be sent to Sue Geddes (see below) by the closing date. Applications are acknowledged but not reference letters.

Only applications received promptly by 12.00 noon on 1 October 2014 can be considered.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant on the LHCb Experiment

Particle Physics

Postdoctoral Research Assistant on the LHCb Experiment

CERN, Geneva, Switzerland and Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford

Grade 7: 30,434 - 37,394 p.a.

The Sub-department of Particle Physics at the University of Oxford is seeking a highly qualified postdoctoral research assistant to work on the LHCb experiment.

The postholder will join the Oxford LHCb group and play a leading role in the preparation and execution of Central Exclusive Production (CEP) and other diffractive physics measurements exploiting data from LHC run 2. These analyses probe an important sector of QCD and also provide an ideal laboratory for spectroscopy studies, both of conventional and exotic states. The postholder will devise a trigger strategy for the coming run and will also commission and exploit first data from a new system of forward scintillator detectors, deployed in the LHC tunnel to distinguish between various classes of pp interaction. He/she will benefit from the unique capabilities of the LHCb experiment in this rich and exciting field.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in experimental physics.

This post is full-time, fixed-term for 3 years and will be based at CERN, Geneva.

Please read the "Person Specification and Job Description" before preparing your application. You will be required to upload a Curriculum Vita, a description of research experience and interests and the names and addresses of three referees as part of your online application. In addition you should arrange for the three letters of reference to be sent to s [dot] geddes [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk by the closing date. Applications are acknowledged but not reference letters.

Informal enquiries about this post may be made to Professor Guy Wilkinson: g [dot] wilkinson [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.

Only applications received promptly by 12.00 noon on 6 October 2014 can be considered.
