Closing Date

The School of Basic Sciences of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) seeks to appoint a

Tenure-track assistant professor of experimental high-energy physics

in the Institute of Physics.

Your Mission

The Laboratory for High-Energy Physics is strongly involved in the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider from the time of its conception, and is currently making a major contribution to the detector upgrade, with a view to enhance data-taking capability to extend the science reach from 2021 onwards. The position offers the opportunity to capitalize on this investment while also developing ideas for the longer-term future, in an environment providing strong technical support in detector development.


A PhD degree in particle physics as well as a strong and growing track record in research and scientific leadership are required. The appointed professor is expected to initiate a creative experimental program, and engage in physics teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels.
