The experimental neutrino physics group of the Leprince Ringuet laboratory (LLR) at École Polytechnique (France) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position of two years, starting in Nov 2018. The successful candidate will work on the data analysis of the Super-Kamiokande (SK) experiment, the world largest water Cherenkov detector located in Japan. These last two decades, SK has produced world leading results in neutrino physics, and in 2018, Gadolinium will be dissolved in the water tank opening a new area of researches such as a possible first observation of the diffuse supernova neutrino background. The LLR group at École polytechnique plays a leading role in neutrino physics in France and the position we offer provides a unique opportunity to participate to some outstanding project in the field of high energy at the frontier between cosmology and elementary particle physics. The position will be based at École Polytechnique (near Paris) but will require regular travels and stays in Japan. Candidates must have a PhD in High Energy Physics and knowledges in neutrino physics as well as astrophysics/cosmology would be welcomed. Applications containing curriculum vitae, description of research interests and letters of recommendations should be sent to email@example.com. Review of applications begins in March and will continue until the position is filled.
