Postdoctoral position: Data Analysis and GTK operation for NA62 experiment

Ref.: CP3-18-NA62-Postdoc

Announced: 9th January 2018
Applications are now closed


The Center for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3) at “Université Catholique de Louvain” invites applications for a postdoctoral position in

“Data Analysis and GTK operation for NA62 experiment”

The appointment is a full-time position for duration of 2 years with the possibility of a one year extension and is available immediately.

Candidates should have a PhD in experimental particle physics presented after 2012. She/He will be engaged in an international team involved both in the operation of the NA62 experiment at CERN and in the analysis of rare kaon decays with the data collected. More concretely, the candidate will participate actively in:

  1. Lepton Flavor Violation and Lepton Number Violation in Kaon Decays
  2. The operation and data analysis of the GTK detector

Research activity in the Center is equally strong in theoretical and experimental physics and collaborations between them are highly encouraged. Besides NA62, the Center is involved in CMS experiment, in the development of Monte Carlo generators and in the phenomenology of fundamental interactions. A strong computing team, hosting a Tier-2 installation, is also in place. The selected candidate is expected to be based in Belgium with possibility of extended stays at CERN.

Application, including a curriculum vitae and two recommendation letter should be submitted through the CP3 job webpage:

Review of the applications will start on the 1st of March 2018 and the position will remain open until filled.
