Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Particle Physics


The Particle Physics Research Centre (PPRC) in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary, University of London has received a European Research Council grant in order to build up a dedicated group working on the SNOplus Experiment and has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Research Associate.

The Queen Mary group will be involved in many aspects of the SNOplus experiment from data processing to high level analysis, in particular measurements of solar neutrino oscillation and the neutrino-less double beta decay search. The group will also make significant contributions to the detector calibration programme, contributing both hardware and software tools.

The successful applicant will be expected to make significant personal contributions to the SNOplus physics programme as well as sharing responsibilities in aspects of the data acquisition, monitoring and calibration of the SNOplus detector. The main project for the successful applicant will involve developing a new electron emitting calibration source through the design, construction, commissioning and deployment stages.

Applicants should have, or be about to gain, a PhD in experimental particle physics and are expected to have experience from at least two years active participation in a leading particle physics experiment. Strong hardware skills and good knowledge of C++ are highly desirable. The post will be located at Queen Mary in London but may require significant periods at SNOLAB in Canada to carry out calibration and hardware related responsibilities and data taking shifts.

The post is full time, available from 1 December 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter. It is funded by the ERC until 30 November 2014. Starting salary will be in the range £32,023- £37,669 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Dr Jeanne Wilson by email to j.r.wilson@qmul.ac.uk or on +44 (0)20 7882 5056. Details of the PPRC can be found at www.pprc.qmul.ac.uk. Further details and an application form can be found at: http://webapps.qmul.ac.uk/hr/vacancies/jobs.php?id=11247/NL Completed application forms, quoting 11247/NL, and a CV should be returned to the Recruitment Secretary, School of Physics, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NS, or by e-mail to phys-recruit@qmul.ac.uk

The closing date for applications is 15th November 2011.
