    The Opportunity

    An exciting opportunity has become available for a Research Fellow to contribute towards the research efforts of the School of Physics and Astronomy. This is an opportunity to join an interdisciplinary team that is leading the world in groundbreaking physics and astronomy research.

    The Research Fellow will be embedded in the research group of Professor Peter Skands, specialising in theoretical and computational particle physics. The Research Fellow will also be part of the Monash node of the Pythia, Vincia, MCnet, and LHC@home collaborations, and of the Monash-Warwick Alliance for Particle Physics.

    The Research Fellow will work on the ARC Discovery Project “Beautiful Strings”, led by Monash University in collaboration with researchers at Warwick University (UK) and Lund University (Sweden). The Research Fellow will conduct research in theoretical particle physics and be expected to take a leading role in improving the understanding and physical modelling of processes involving b quarks.

    The successful candidates will hold a PhD in particle physics or a closely related field and have a breadth and depth of knowledge of theoretical particle physics and particle physics phenomenology, and of relevant research methods and techniques. They will have demonstrated analytical and manuscript preparation skills, including a track record of refereed research.

    Diversity is one of our greatest strengths at Monash. We encourage applications from First Nations people, culturally and linguistically diverse people, people with disabilities, neurodiverse people, and people of all genders, sexualities, and age groups.
