The High Energy Physics Laboratory (LPHE) of EPFL, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, invites applications for a postdoc position to work on the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. The lab, led by Prof. Olivier Schneider and Prof. Lesya Shchutska, is strongly involved in data analysis, as well as in the commissioning and operation of the Scintillating Fibre (SciFi) Tracker and the PLUME luminometer for the current LHCb detector upgrade. It is also involved in the new SND@LHC experiment. It pursues SciFi R&D for further upgrades of the LHCb tracker, for future astroparticle detectors in space and for medical dosimetry applications.
Our new colleague is expected to join LHCb, to take leading roles in areas where our lab is already active, and help supervise students.
Applicants should have a solid experience and strong interest in flavour data analysis (e.g. measurements of charm mixing and CP violation, or searches for lepton-flavour-violating decays). Candidates particularly interesting to us would want to engage as well in detector operations, track reconstruction, design and performance studies of tracking detectors for LHCb upgrades, or SciFi and SiPM technology development.
The position, which also comprises teaching duties at Bachelor or Master level.
Applicants must hold a PhD degree in experimental particle physics, obtained preferably within the past 5 years, or expect to graduate before the start of employment.
