Postdoc for Experimental Astroparticle Physics (redna zaposlitev, rok za prijavo 7. januar 2024)

The Institute of Experimental Particle Physics (ETP) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology has an opening for a postdoctoral position in the field of High-Energy Astrophysics with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory.

The postdoc will focus on cosmic-ray physics with IceCube including multi-messenger aspects and is expected to work in close collaboration with members of the Pierre Auger group at KIT. Interest in studying the relation of IceCube observations to forward physics at colliders or in contributing to the CORSIKA 8 development will be appreciated.

Applicants must have a PhD (or be near completion) in Physics, Astronomy, or a related field. Previous experience on the analysis of cosmic-ray or astrophysical neutrino data will be considered as an asset. The initial position will be for 2 years, but may be extended based on fund availability.

Applications should be submitted by Email and The application should include a cover letter with a statement of purpose (explaining the scientific goals of the candidate), and a current CV including a list of publications. At least two addresses for recommendation letters should also be included in the application.

Applications received by January 7, 2024 will be given full consideration. Applications submitted after this date are considered only until the position is filled.

ETP is part of the KIT Centre Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics (KCETA, see: for further information). The rich research environment in KCETA includes further large-scale projects such as the KATRIN experiment at KIT, the CMS detector at LHC and the Belle-II experiment in Japan. Close collaborations exist with strong theoretical physics groups working on astroparticle and particle phenomenology. The Karlsruhe School of Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics: Science and Technology (KSETA) provides an excellent training of Ph.D. students. The candidate is required to teach (eventually in German) and to co-supervise bachelor, master and Ph.D. students. KIT is pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing gender balance and diversity of its faculty. As an equal opportunity employer, KIT explicitly encourages applications from women as well as from all others who will bring additional diversity to the university’s research and teach ing. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered if suitably qualified.
