University Lecturer (Fixed Term) in Department of Physics University of Cambridge, Department of Physics United Kingdom

University Lecturer (Fixed Term)

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 4 years in the first instance.


The Department of Physics, the Cavendish Laboratory, invites applications for a University Lectureship in Experimental High Energy Physics for a period of 4 years to commence on 1 October 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The Lectureship will be based in the Department of Physics as part of the High Energy Physics research group. The appointment will strengthen the group's existing international reputation in neutrino physics on the Long Base-Line Neutrino Facility (LBNF) and Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) in the USA ( The successful candidate will have a world-class research record in experimental particle physics. S(he) will be expected to lead and grow the group's neutrino physics activities on LBNF/DUNE, in particular in the area of data-acquisition and software. This activity is expected to complement the group's world-leading approach to automated imaging/reconstruction software for Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers.

Applicants should have a PhD in physics (or a cognate discipline), a strong record of relevant research, and must show evidence of enthusiasm and ability to teach a wide range of physics courses successfully at both undergraduate and master's level. This work will include the delivery of existing courses, and the development of new teaching materials, lecture courses, examinations and laboratory classes. The Department is active in promoting policies to address historic under-representation of women and minority groups in its workforce. We are proud to hold an Athena-SWAN Gold Award for our work on equality and diversity. Candidates from under-represented groups, as well as candidates with a track record in addressing barriers to equality and diversity in education, are particularly encouraged to apply. The position has occurred due to the secondment of Professor Mark Thomson to the Science Technologies and Facilities Council (STFC) as Executive Chair. The appointment will be for a fixed period of four years, with the possibility of extension.
