Postdoctoral Position: Research Fellow in Absolute Neutrino Mass Measurements (Ref: 1874202)

The UCL High Energy Physics group is seeking an outstanding PhD particle physicist to lead the simulations and analysis effort in a newly funded project which aims to exploit quantum technologies for determination of the absolute neutrino mass (QTNM).

The post-holder will develop a simulation of a novel atom decelerator and trap being constructed at UCL and will work with others to develop detailed models of cyclotron radiation emission and detection. Finally, the post-holder will implement techniques for extracting neutrino mass information from tritium decay spectra and will make projections of the sensitivity of future experiments.

The UCL High Energy Physics Group is one of the larger groups in the country and consists of around 80 staff comprising academics, long-term fellows, research staff, technical/computing staff and PhD students. The Group provides an exciting and supportive research environment with involvement in particle phenomenology, the ATLAS experiment at the LHC and energy frontier research, neutrino experiments, direct Dark Matter searches, Particle Astrophysics, lepton sector experiments, accelerator R&D and Data Intensive Science via our Centre for Doctoral Training.

The position is funded for three years in the first instance.
