The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the Pole « Theory « in Laboratoire de Physique des 2 Infinis Irène Joliot-Curie (IJCLab), within a team who investigates fundamental interaction in particle physics. He/she will work under the supervision of Benoit Blossier within the framework of the « LatHiggs » ANR project whose aim is establishing constraints from the heavy quark sector on New Physics scenarios beyond the Standard Model.


The post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of (…). He/she shall contribute to activities such as
• monitoring of a strategy applied to study b-quark physics with lattice QCD simulations obtained at the physical point
• extracting distribution amplitudes of charmonia computed with lattice QCD numerical simulations
• publication of one or more individual articles on the analyses of the data collected during the project.


Candidates must hold a doctorate in lattice QCD. Fluency in spoken and written English (C1) is a requirement.

Work Context

The Irène Joliot-Curie Physics Laboratory of 2 Infinities (IJCLab) is a UMR under the supervision of the CNRS (IN2P3), the University of Paris-Saclay and the University of Paris is located on the campus of the University of Paris -Saclay in Orsay. The laboratory is located on the campus of the Université Paris-Sud, Université Paris-Saclay in Orsay. The campus is located 20 km south of Paris and easily accessible by RER in 35 minutes.
IJCLab was born in 2020 from the merger of five units (CSNSM, IMNC, IPN, LAL, LPT). The staff is made up of nearly 560 permanent (340 engineers, technicians and administrators and 220 researchers and teacher-researchers) and approximately 200 non-permanent including 120 doctoral students. The research themes of the laboratory are nuclear physics, high energy physics, theoretical physics, astroparticles, astrophysics and cosmology, particle accelerators, energy and the environment and health. IJCLab has very significant technical capacities (around 280 IT) in all the major fields required to design, develop / implement the experimental devices necessary for its scientific activity, as well as the design, development and use of instruments. .

The researcher will work in the Pole « Theory » of the Laboratory which is involved in particle physics, nuclear physics, cosmology and gravitation, mathematical physics and statistical physics.
The group includes around 35 physicists (permanent researchers, post-docs and doctoral students).

Constraints and risks

Short periods of travel within France and abroad should be expected.

Additional Information

Submit a covering letter and CV without any break in date showing diplomas, titles and work and professional experience.
As the post is located in a ZRR (Restricted Regime Zone), recruitment is conditional on obtaining a favorable opinion from the HFSD. Consequently, the starting date is given for information only and may be postponed.
