RWTH Aachen - I. Physikalisches Institut B

The I. Institute for Physics of the RWTH Aachen is a member of the LHCb collaboration and a major contributor to the development and construction of the SciFi tracker, the large tracker for the LHCb upgrade. The LHCb Aachen group is constantly growing and consists of several PostDocs, PhD students and undergraduate students. We aim to further strengthen our profile in the area of data analysis with focus on searches for processes beyond the Standard Model with rare decays. 

Postdoctoral Research Assistant / Associate (w/m/d)

Work­ing field:

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be expec­ted to con­tri­bute in a lea­ding role to the ana­ly­sis of rare decays at the LHCb expe­ri­ment. This inclu­des the deve­lop­ment of ana­ly­sis stra­te­gies and their suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion and the super­vi­sion of under­gra­duate and Ph. D. stu­dents. The can­di­date is also expec­ted to actively par­ti­ci­pate in the data taking of the LHCb expe­ri­ment.


App­li­cants must have, or be about to obtain, a doc­to­rate/Ph. D. or equi­va­lent in expe­ri­men­tal par­ti­cle phy­sics. Exten­sive expe­ri­ence in data ana­ly­sis and pro­found know­ledge of heavy fla­vour phy­sics and sear­ches for phe­no­mena bey­ond the Stan­dard Model are essen­tial. Inte­rested par­ties should send a CV, a list of publi­ca­ti­ons, a state­ment of rese­arch inte­rests and the con­tact details of two refe­rees.

What we of­fer:

The posi­tion is for 3 years and is to be fil­led as soon as pos­si­ble. An exten­sion for a second term of 3 years is pos­si­ble.

This is a full-time posi­tion.

The salary cor­re­sponds to level EG 13 TV-L.

RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity is cer­ti­fied as a "Family-Fri­endly Uni­ver­sity". We wel­come app­li­ca­ti­ons from all sui­ta­bly qua­li­fied can­di­da­tes regard­less of gen­der. We par­ti­cu­larly wel­come and encou­rage app­li­ca­ti­ons from women, dis­ab­led per­sons and eth­nic mino­rity groups, reco­gni­zing they are under­re­p­re­sen­ted across RWTH Aachen Uni­ver­sity. The princi­ples of fair and open com­pe­ti­tion apply and appoint­ments will be made on merit. RWTH Aachen is an equal oppor­tu­nities employer. We the­re­fore ask you not to include a photo in your app­li­ca­tion.
