Post-doc opportunities in South Africa


The South African ALICE groups at iThemba LABS, the University of Cape Town and the University of the Witwatersrand are a small and active community that is contributing to the Muon Arm and the Transition Radiation Detector of ALICE and that is working on measurements of muons and photons. The involvement in ALICE is part of the South Africa-CERN Programme (SA-CERN), which also includes a participation in the ATLAS Experiment, the ISOLDE Programme and a strong group of theorists working on topics related to the experimental programme.
Post-doctoral research fellowships are available from various funding sources, and currently the Claude Leon Foundation has an open call applications for their fellowships:
The application is open to all research areas, including heavy-ion physics. If you are interested in a post-doc in South Africa (either Cape Town or Johannesburg), please contact Tom Dietel <>.
