OPENING POSITION at the Laboratoire Charles Coulomb (Université de Montpellier & CNRS, Montpellier, France)

Postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical particle physics beyond the Standard Model

We invite applications for a one-year postdoc position in Montpellier, France (extension conditional to funding).

The successful candidate should conduct research on theoretical aspects of particle physics beyond the Standard Model. We especially aim to the analysis of strongly-coupled theories of electroweak symmetry breaking in a broad sense. Desirable qualifications include composite Higgs models, conformal field theories and their dual, as well as non-perturbative techniques in confining gauge theories.

This opening is in the framework of the project "New physics from a natural electroweak symmetry breaking", a collaboration between the particle physics theory groups in Montpellier (L2C & LUPM) IFAC and Marseille (CPT), supported by the excellence program "Origins, Constituents and Evolution of the Universe".
The principal investigators are M. Knecht (CPT), M. Frigerio and J.-L. Kneur (L2C). Other members of the involved laboratories with related interests include G. Moultaka (L2C), F. Bruemmer, C. Hugonie (LUPM), and L. Lellouch (CPT).

We envisage a start date in autumn 2017. The appointment is for a fixed term of one year, subject to yearly renewal if funding becomes available, and it includes a specific budget for travel. The postdoc will be based in Montpellier, and frequent visits to Marseille will be supported to foster the collaboration.

Applicants are expected to have a PhD in physics and a strong research record. Applications, including a CV with list of publications, and a brief statement of qualifications and research interests, should be emailed to Michele Frigerio []. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent directly to that address. The selection procedure will start in early February 2017. Later applications will be considered till the position is filled.
