Lecturer in Flavour Physics at Imperial College London

Imperial College London, UK is offering lecturer position in high energy. Candidates are welcome before December 13, 2018.

Applications are invited for a Lecturer in Flavour Physics, working in the High Energy Physics (HEPH) Group in the Department of Physics. We are seeking an outstanding candidate whose expertise will strengthen our LHCb group.

The High Energy Physics Group has a strong experimental programme in the flavour area. We have been actively involved in the LHCb experiment from its conception and one of the previous Spokespersons is a member of the Group. The Group is playing a leading role in exploring rare and semileptonic decays, where several anomalies with respect to Standard Model predictions are presently seen. In the short term, we expect the successful candidate to take an active role in LHCb data analysis in these or similar areas with the potential to observe beyond the Standard Model physics. In the longer term, the Group expects to have a major involvement in the LHCb Phase 2 upgrade and seeks a candidate also able to contribute to this effort.

The Group also has major involvement with the CMS experiment, the long-baseline neutrino experiments T2K, Hyper-K and DUNE, the SoLid sterile neutrino search experiment, the search for dark matter with the LUX-ZEPLIN experiment, the search for hidden sector particles with the SHiP experiment, and a search for charged lepton flavour violation with COMET. There are also significant detector development, accelerator, phenomenology and Grid computing programmes. Further details can be found at

Youwill manage your own innovative research programme of international quality aligned with the academic missions of the HEPH Group, Department of Physics and Imperial College London. The role will involve lecturing undergraduate and post-graduate courses, supervising research and PhD students.You will be expected to prepare and deliver lectures to classes of between 20 and 250 students, act as a personal tutor to provide pastoral support to undergraduates in addition to contributing to curriculum development work.You will also promote the reputation of the Department, and the College, through scientific meetings and other activities.

The post is available immediately and the starting date will be by negotiation.

Interviews will be held over 28th and 29th January 2019.

Informal enquiries are welcomed and should be directed to Dr Mitesh Patel, Head of the LHCb Group (email: or Professor Paul Dauncey, Head of the High Energy Physics Group (email:, either directly or via the HEP administration office (tel: +44 (0) 20 7594 7823, or e-mail:

Queries relating to the application process should be directed to Paula Brown, Section Administrator –

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
