Come to work at CERN

At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

The School of Basic Sciences of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) seeks to appoint a tenure-track assistant professor of experimental high-energy physics in the Institute of Physics.

The Laboratory for High-Energy Physics is strongly involved in the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider from the time of its conception, and is currently making a major contribution to the detector upgrade, with a view to enhance data-taking capability to extend the science reach from 2021 onwards. The position offers the opportunity to capitalize on this investment while also developing ideas for the longer-term future, in an environment providing strong technical support in detector development.

A PhD degree in particle physics as well as a strong and growing track record in research and scientific leadership are required. The appointed professor is expected to initiate a creative experimental program, and engage in physics teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels.

Significant start-up resources, research budget and state-of-the-art research infrastructure are available. Salaries and benefits are internationally competitive.

Applications should include a motivation letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of research outputs, a statement of research (max. 3 pages) and teaching interests (max. 1 page), as well as the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least three references.

Applications should be uploaded (as PDFs) by December 15th, 2017 to
