Open Position Open Position Postdoctoral Positions in Theoretical Particle Physics

Opening Date:
Closing Date:

The Theory Group at the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE), at the UAB Campus (Barcelona), invites applications for a Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical Particle Physics, starting in Fall 2024 (or earlier). The appointment will be for a full time position of two years.

The candidates should have research expertise in Theoretical Physics, along the strategic lines of the members of the Standard Model Physics and Flavor Physics group . Its research objectives are to apply Effective Field Theories (EFTs) to different (in scale) physical systems, ranging from bound states to binary systems, to use Flavour Physics as an effective tool for discovery by means of B-meson decays, to better establish the foundations of the Operator Product Expansion (OPE) as a tool for theoretical analyses in quantum field theories, to further improve the hadronic contributions to the muon anomalous magnetic moment aiming for a reduction of the theoretical error to pave the way for clean physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) analyses, and to use meson physics as a laboratory for testing QCD at low energies and searching for new physics.

The members of the group are R. Escribano, P. MasJuan, J. Matias, S. Peris and A. Pineda.

Candidates should send their applications in pdf format (including CV, research interests, and publication list) through the portal ​ . They should also arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be included in the application. The candidates will be evaluated on the basis of their scientific research excellence.

The application deadline will be December 31st, 2023.

Sending applications implies the candidate’s consent to IFAE to treat their provided personal data according to the current Spanish and European data protection regulations.

IFAE is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace and social integration of people with a disability. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates. People from groups that are typically underrepresented in the labour market in general, and in Science and Engineering in particular, such as women, minorities, or people with a disability, are particularly encouraged to apply.
