KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The group in theoretical particle physics at the Division of Particle and Astroparticle Physics, Department of Physics, School of Engineering Sciences, KTH Royal Institute of Technology announces a two-year position as postdoc. The group also participates in the Oskar Klein Centre (OKC). The group’s research focus is physics beyond the Standard Model and includes especially neutrino physics.

This research project will be focused on theoretical and phenomenological research about neutrinos with an emphasis on (i) investigations of the physics reach of the proposed neutrino experiment ESSnuSB and its detectors based on non-beam physics as well as sensitivity studies of ESSnuSB and its detectors with respect to sterile neutrinos and other new physics searches, (ii) comparison of the performance of the ESSnuSB with that of other planned experiments, and (iii) theoretical studies of neutrino physics beyond the Standard Model. The work on (i) and (ii) should amount to a minimum of 50 % of full-time working time.

In the position, a limited amount of teaching may be included depending on both the interest of the successful applicant and the availability at the department.
