The LHCb experiment at CERN has finished collecting data from the proton-proton collisions delivered by the Large Hadron Collider, and is currently performing the analysis of these data and the preparation for the upcoming major upgrade of the detector. The postdoctoral project is focused on testing lepton universality in B meson decays and on the reconstruction activities for the upgrade of the LHCb detector.


The successful candidate is expected to both play a leading role in testing lepton universality, and to make a significant contribution to LHCb's Run 3 real-time analysis system. In particular the LPNHE group has led the development of a GPU based first level trigger which has recently been adopted as the Run 3 baseline by LHCb, and you will be expected to make a major contribution to delivering and commissioning this system with the first data of Run 3.


The candidate should have a PhD in Particle Physics.
Previous experience within the LHCb experiment is not mandatory but welcome.

Work Context

LPNHE (Laboratoire de Physique Nucléaire et des Hautes Energies, is a laboratory of the IN2P3 (Institut National de Physique Nucléaire et de Physique de Particules), a CNRS institute, and of the universities « Sorbonne Université » and « Université Paris Diderot Sorbonne Paris Cité ». The laboratory is located in Paris (France). It is involved in major particle physics, astroparticle physics and cosmology international collaborations.

The LPNHE LHCb group consists of seven permanent staff, three PhD students, and two postdocs, and is currently involved in two main domains of data analysis, the study of charmless three body B decays and rare decays. We also participate enthusiastically in detector development, and are heavily involved in the upgrade of LHCb's real-time analysis (trigger) system and the construction and commissioning of the new Scintillating Fibre tracker for the LHCb upgrade.
