The experimental high-energy physics group at Kansas State University invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (Post Doc) position on the CMS experiment at European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN). The KSU group (Andrew Ivanov, Ketino Kaadze, and Yurii Maravin) has a strong background in searches for new physics, Higgs boson, and top quark physics, and is active in the pixel and hadron calorimeter phase 1 and phase 2 upgrades.
The successful candidate is expected to play a leading role in physics analysis of the group’s interest for the CMS experiment, as well as working on the CMS detector upgrades. It is expected that the successful candidate will be based at Fermi National Accelerator Lab (FNAL) or at CERN. Occasional travel for meetings and conferences is expected.
Candidates for this position are required to have a Ph.D. and research experience in experimental particle physics. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: hadron collider data analysis, experience in commissioning and testing of the electronics, and detector operations. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a strong commitment to mentoring of graduate students and to serving a diverse population.
The appointment will be a term appointment. Applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States at the time of employment.
Screening of applications will begin on January 20, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.
