High-energy gamma-ray astrophysics

Attention, ouverture dans une nouvelle fenêtre. PDFImprimerEnvoyer

logo dmastrolhcIn the framework of the French Excellence Initiative “ENIGMASS”, a newly set-up consortium of the four laboratories LAPP, LAPTh, LPSC and LSM, we are seeking candidates for a post-doctoral position to work in the field of very high-energy gamma-ray astrophysics.  The successful candidate will join a research team with mixed experimental expertise from LAPP and theoretical one from LAPTh. He or she will be integrated in the local H.E.S.S./CTA group at LAPP, in Annecy-le-vieux.

The research activities will consist of a coherent combination of data analysis of the H.E.S.S. experiment,  (currently in its phase 2, exploring the tens of GeV energy domain by means of the fifth 30 m dish large telescope), related phenomenological studies, and exploration of new scientific perspectives offered by the advent of the next generation gamma-ray observatory CTA.

Topics of preferential interest on which the successful candidate is called to play a key role are those relevant for cosmological and fundamental physics studies in a multi-wavelength and multimessenger context, such as: active galactic nuclei as probes of extragalactic background light and cosmological magnetic fields, population studies as tools for source physics diagnostics, constraints on dark matter, signatures of Lorentz invariance violation as well as other beyond the standard model signatures.

Depending on the skills and the personal choices of the successful candidate, (s)he will have also the opportunity either to participate to activities devoted to the data management issues of the future CTA observatory, or to more theoretical works. The supervision of young trainees and graduate students is also envisaged. The fellowship is awarded for an initial period of two years with the possibility of a third year extension. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Physics at the time of appointment (as soon as available in 2013); preferably, they should have experience with high-energy (astro)physics simulation and data analysis.

The monthly salary follows CNRS salary grids and depends on experience. The position includes funds for traveling and an installation grant.

The application (including a CV with a short statement of research interests and two to three recommendation letters) is to be made electronically, following the on-line registration. Contact persons for further information: G. Lamanna (LAPP), P. Serpico (LAPTh).


Applications will be reviewed starting Dec. 17th 2012, recommendation letters must have been received before that date.

Higgs, Symmetry Breaking and New Physics

Attention, ouverture dans une nouvelle fenêtre. PDFImprimerEnvoyer

higgs-enigmassIn the framework of the French Excellence Initiative, ENIGMASS, a newly set-up consortium of the four laboratories (LAPP, LAPTh, LPSC and LSM) is seeking candidates for a post-doctoral position to work on the theory and phenomenology of the Higgs and the implications of New Physics concerning electroweak symmetry breaking. The successful candidate will join a team of theorists at LAPTh-Annecy. Collaboration with experimentalists in ATLAS (Annecy and Grenoble) as well as theorists in Grenoble is foreseen. For more detailed information on the ENIGMASS project see the ENIGMASS webpage.

The fellowship is awarded for an initial period of two years with a possibility for a third year. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the time of appointment (October 2013 or earlier). The monthly salary is in the range 2000-2300Euros/month depending on experience.

The application is to be made on-line and three recommendation letters should be uploaded at the same address.

Attention, ouverture dans une nouvelle fenêtre. PDFImprimerEnvoyer

logo lapth eqts 2Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position in theoretical high energy and mathematical physics at LAPTh (Annecy-le-Vieux), to start in the fall of 2013. The position is proposed within the framework of the French National Research Agency (ANR) research project “StrongInt” (coordinator E. Sokatchev, LAPTh) carried out jointly with IPhT-Saclay (team leader G. Korchemsky) and ENS-Paris (team leader V. Kazakov). The subject is 4D conformal field theory and the AdS/CFT correspondence, more precisely the study of anomalous dimensions, scattering amplitudes and correlation functions in maximally supersymmetric CFT and their relationship with integrable systems.

Applications including CV, list of publications and statement of research should be made at the webpage online. The applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded at the same web server.
