|Job Description|| |
The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a European non-profit science and technology institution based in Cyprus and led by an acclaimed Board of Trustees. The research aims of the CyI are represented by three research centers: the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center (CaSToRC), the Science and Technology in Archaeology and Culture Research Center (STARC), and the Energy Environment Water Research Center (EEWRC). Considerable cross-center interaction is a characteristic of the Institute’s culture.
CaSToRC is seeking to recruit Post-Doctoral Fellows in Lattice QCD, to contribute in the research activities of the recently awarded project with title “New Physics Insights from Exascale Simulations of QCD” (NextQCD). The project foresees large-scale simulations for the generation of state-of-the-art, large volume lattice ensembles and the study of nucleon structure, with focus on the nucleon-pion system and resonance parameters.
The successful candidate(s) will contribute in the research activities of The Cyprus Institute lattice QCD group that include hadron structure, algorithmic and code development for various computer architectures, and large-scale lattice QCD simulations. Exchanges with the partners in the NextQCD project are foreseen, namely with the University of Cyprus, the Jülich Supercomputing Center and the University of Wuppertal. Beyond the consortium members, collaborators include the lattice QCD groups in the Extended Twisted Mass Collaboration (ETMC) at DESY-Zeuthen, Bonn, Frankfurt, Rome and Temple Universities.
The appointment(s) will be of a full time basis, initially for a fixed term period of two (2) years with the potential of contract renewal depending on performance and availability of funds. The annual salary will depend on the applicants’ experience and qualifications.
