The Particle Physics group at Monash University seeks to appoint an
outstanding individual to work within the recently established Monash Warwick
Alliance in Particle Physics (MWAPP).
The goals of MWAPP are to bring together and build upon expertise at Monash
and Warwick in theoretical and experimental particle physics, to advance the
field and to develop necessary tools for future progress. This will include
analysis of data collected by the LHCb experiment, testing the Standard Model
and searching for evidence of phenomena beyond it. MWAPP also aims to develop
simulation software, such as the Pythia and EvtGen packages, as appropriate
for the needs of the field in the next decade and beyond.
The successful candidate will take a prominent role in MWAPP. You will join
the group's activity in the LHCb project, and will contribute to both physics
analysis and software development. You should have, or should be about to
obtain, a PhD in experimental particle physics or another relevant subject.
You will have a good grounding in and general knowledge of particle physics.
Experience of modern data analysis techniques for particle physics experiments
and ability to work with the C++ and Python programming languages are
required. You will be an excellent communicator capable of working effectively
both independently and as part of a research team. You will possess excellent
planning and time management skills to ensure your research objectives are
This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may
The position is available for an initial fixed term of two years with the
possibility of extension to a maximum of three years. The post will be based
at Monash with travel to Warwick and CERN as necessary.
Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to
