Job Opportunities in the High Energy Physics Group

The Imperial College High Energy Physics Group has a strong ongoing experimental programme encompassing the CMS and LHCb experiments at the LHC; the T2K, Super-Kamiokande and future Hyper-Kamiokande experiments in Japan; the search for sterile neutrinos with SoLid in Belgium; the future neutrino oscillation experiment DUNE at Fermilab and SURF in the USA; the search for dark matter with the LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment in the USA; the search for charged lepton flavour violation with COMET in Japan; the MICE experiment in the UK; the Atom Interferometer Observatory and Network (AION) project in the UK and the USA; SHiP and SuperNEMO activities and the development of future experiments. There are also significant accelerator, phenomenology and Grid computing programmes.

Within the group, there is a strong tradition of detector development and construction, which has led to key activities in the above experiments. These now extend to prototypes for the electromagnetic calorimeter appropriate for a future linear collider detector. The Group is also active in Grid computing developments. Further details of the group's programme may be found on our research page.

Periodically the group has vacancies for Research Associate positions of one or two years initial duration. Salary, depending on qualifications and experience, is currently in the range £43,093 - £50,834 including London allowance.
