SLAC Research Associate Positions on ATLAS
The SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) is regularly seeking for applicants for experimental Postdoctoral Research Associate positions to work on the ATLAS experiment at CERN.The LHC presents ideal opportunities for physics at the energy frontier and experimental experience in a challenging environment of rapidly increasing luminosity. These openings allow participation in a selection of experimental areas that SLAC is involved in and a variety of physics topics at the LHC. The successful candidates are encouraged to take the initial post at CERN.
Some information on the SLAC ATLAS group can be found on our web
page. The potential next avialable position has a start time of ~Oct/2012. Interested candidates should submit an
application and arrange for their recommendation letters to be sent.
Current experimental areas the SLAC team is involved in:
The SLAC ATLAS group has over 30 people, of which 8 are currently based at CERN. There are typically 6-7 Research Associates in the group at any given time and there are 1-2 replacement hiring each year as senior Research Associates move on to new positions. We expect to strengthen our involvement in these areas although we may potentially expand to other areas. The physics interest of the group has a main long range theme toward searches for new physics, while the initial analysis effort also includes early Standard Model measurements. Our physics effort also has a strong emphasis on the buildup of physics signature tools through active engagement in several physics performance areas such as jet and missing Et reconstruction, tracking and b-tagging, as well as trigger algorithms and strategies.
For further information, please contact
Prof. Su Dong or
Dr. Charles Young.
- Pixel detector
- High Level Trigger and DAQ
- Tier 2 computing facility at SLAC
- ATLAS upgrade
These are highly competitive positions as part of the general research associate program at SLAC, requiring a background of demonstrated excellence in research and a recent PhD in experimental particle physics. The term of these positions is two years in the first instance and may be renewed.
How to Apply
Applications will be collected through Academic Jobs Online (link will be provided when an approved position is available). The application process will also requrie candidates to name at least three senior physicists who know their work to provide letters of recommendation.
The applications are continually accepted throughout the year and
periodically processed. In case your application must be processed on a short
time scale due to other constraints, please notify us at application time.
Please note: Hires at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory are
subject to Department of Energy approval, and are required to complete
Environmental Safety & Health training.
