Junior Principle Investigator Position in Theoretical Particle Physics

The Collaborative Research Center ``Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs Discovery’’ and the Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology (TTK) at RWTH Aachen University invite applications for a Junior Principle Investigator position in theoretical particle and astroparticle physics starting in fall 2023 or earlier.

The Junior Principle Investigator position offers early-career high-potential researchers an exceptional opportunity to sharpen their research profile. The successful candidate will be employed as a junior research group leader (pay grade TvL 14) for four years. We also offer additional funding for a PhD position and the opportunity to supervise doctoral candidates. The junior research group is expected to play a major role in the CRC ``Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs Discovery’’ and in particular to strengthen research in the field of dark matter and the connection between dark matter physics at colliders and in astroparticle physics and cosmology. The junior research group will be based at the Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology at RWTH Aachen University. The CRC ``Particle Physics Phenomenology after the Higgs Discovery’’ is a joint venture of theoretical particle physicists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, RWTH Aachen University, the University of Siegen and Heidelberg University. It is supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The CRC conducts research in theoretical particle physics, with the goal of developing and applying methods to discover new physics through precise measurements at the LHC, flavour factories and elsewhere, see here for more details. The Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology at RWTH Aachen University covers a broad range of research topics in theoretical particle and astroparticle physics, collider phenomenology, field theory, and cosmology. The faculty members of the institute are Profs. Michal Czakon, Robert Harlander, Michael Krämer, Julien Lesgourgues, Philipp Mertsch, Malgorzata Worek and Dr. Alexander Mück. Furthermore, Dr. Ben Page will join the group in October 2023.

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics and a strong track record in dark matter physics. We explicitly encourage applications from qualified women and underrepresented minorities. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference if equally qualified.

Applications including a list of publications, curriculum vitae and a short research statement should be e-mailed as a single pdf file to ttkJPI@physik.rwth-aachen.de. Three letters of reference should be e-mailed separately to the same address. The deadline for applications is December 19, 2022. Later applications will be considered as long as the opening exist.
