The Edinburgh Particle Physics Experiment (PPE) group is excited to be able to offer several postdoctoral/visiting scholar researcher positions thanks to its successes in obtaining STFC funding to aid exploitation of existing and construction of future experiments. We are a rapidly expanding and dynamic group of physicists, holding substantial roles across the ATLAS, DUNE, LHCb, LZ, SBND, MicroBooNE, SuperNEMO and DarkSide-20k experiments.
We have a lively research atmosphere where novel analysis ideas are fostered, alongside our long-standing expertise and commitments to analysis, software, hardware, outreach and impact activities.
In this advert, we detail the call for candidates for a postdoctoral researcher to exploit the LZ experiment through data analysis. Complementary adverts (job reference 6708, 6709 and 6712) detail the openings for ATLAS, DUNE and SuperNEMO postdoctoral researchers. If you wish to be considered for more than one of these posts, you need apply only once, and can indicate in your covering letter your wish to be considered for the other posts.
We are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our team working on the LUX-ZEPLIN direct dark mater search experiment. You will make substantial contributions to our physics programme, participating in analysis, operations and managing data.
LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a multi-tonne liquid xenon dark matter detector that achieved world-leading sensitivity to WIMP dark matter in its first science run. Located over a kilometre underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota, it has a rich science programme that addresses many open questions in modern physics.
You will work on LZ simulation and data analysis under LZ’s Physics Coordinator, with a particular focus on neutrons, in the context of both calibrations and backgrounds. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in LZ’s future searches for dark matter and other new physics. The group has recently expanded and is now comprised of two academics, one postdoc and three PhD students.
Your skills and attributes for success:
- Possess, or be about to obtain a PhD in Experimental Particle Physics
- Proven track record of performing high quality research in experimental particle physics
- Good working knowledge of C++ and/or Python programming languages
- Ability to self-motivate and work independently
- Ability to work as part of a team while showing leadership and initiative
- Desirable but not necessary: experience in neutron simulation with Geant4
