The experimental particle physics group at UC Irvine invites applications for a Postdoctoral research position to work on the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
The UCI group consists of Profs. Andrew Lankford, Anyes Taffard and Daniel Whiteson. The group has a strong background in searches for physics beyond the Standard Model (SUSY, Higgs sector, Exotic). The group is actively involved in the operation and maintenance of Muon systems, Trigger and Data Acquisition and is engaged in the Phase-I muon upgrade (New Small Wheel) and in the High-Luminosity (HL-LHC) upgrade of the Level-0 a muon trigger using the Monitoring Drift Chambers (MDT).
The researcher is expected to make significant personal contributions to ATLAS physics analyses as well as the group’s upgrade program. The applicant should have, or be about to gain, a Ph.D. in particle physics, and is expected to have experience from at least two years of active participation in a leading international particle physics experiment. The applicant should have expertise in data analysis techniques and software systems used in high-energy physics as well as Unix operating systems, C++ programming language and Python.
Location will be at UCI and/or CERN based on needs and mutual agreement.
Interested candidates should apply online at the UC Irvine’s online application system, RECRUIT, located at https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF04404.
Candidates must submit in pdf format:
- Cover letter
- Curriculum Vitae
