P13-b - Postdoc - Theoretical Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Model

Postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical particle physics beyond the Standard Model
We invite applications for a one-year postdoc position in Montpellier, France, available from January 2018. 
The successful candidate should conduct research on theoretical aspects of particle physics beyond the Standard Model, especially on strongly-coupled theories relevant for electroweak symmetry breaking, in a broad sense. Desirable qualifications include expertise in composite Higgs models, conformal field theories and their dual, as well as non-perturbative techniques in gauge theories.
The selected candidate could commence as early as January 2018, but a later start can be arranged. 
The appointment is for a fixed term of one year, subject to yearly renewal if funding becomes available; it includes a specific budget for travel. 
This opening is in the framework of the project "New physics from a natural electroweak symmetry breaking", a collaboration between the particle physics theory groups in Montpellier (L2C & LUPM) [ http://www.coulomb.univ-montp2.fr/-Equipe-Interactions-fondamentales-ast... ] and Marseille (CPT) [ http://www.cpt.univ-mrs.fr/?lang=fr ], supported by the excellence program "Origins, Constituents and Evolution of the Universe" [ https://www.labex-ocevu.univ-amu.fr/ ]. The principal investigators are M. Knecht (CPT), M. Frigerio and J.-L. Kneur (L2C). Other members of the involved laboratories with related interests include G. Moultaka (L2C), F. Bruemmer, C. Hugonie (LUPM), and L. Lellouch (CPT). The postdoc will be based in Montpellier, and frequent visits to Marseille will be supported to foster the collaboration.
Applicants are expected to have a PhD in physics and a strong research record. Applications, including a CV with list of publications, and a brief statement of qualifications and research interests, should be emailed to Michele Frigerio [ michele.frigerio@umontpellier.fr ]. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent directly to that address as well.
The applications should be sent at the candidate's earliest convenience, as the position could start in early 2018. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
