Applications are invited for a post-doctoral or associate researcher position in experimental high-energy physics with the University of Kansas beginning as early as May 1, 2018. Post-doctoral researcher candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in physics by date of appointment and research experience in experimental high-energy physics or a related experimental field. Candidates with three or more years of post-doctoral experience may be eligible for initial appointment as associate researcher. The person would work with the University of Kansas group on physics data analysis and detector operation and development for the CMS experiment. Candidates with relevant interests and experience are sought.
The University of Kansas CMS group is pursuing a broad and exciting research program, with elements including detector operation and development in the CMS tracker and ECAL groups, along with work towards the improvement of the CMS detector and the development of a precision timing detector for the LHC Phase-II upgrade. The group participates in a number of data analysis efforts, with particular focus on searches for evidence of new physics, beyond the Standard Model. In addition to searches for incarnations of Supersymmetry and models with new, heavy quarks, an ambitious search program utilizing modern machine learning techniques is being developed. The post-doctoral researcher would be expected to participate in many of these activities, taking a leadership role in advancing and dictating the group’s research program, interacting with and mentoring students, and engaging in creative and independent thought.
The person may be stationed at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland or at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.
