Postdoctoral Research Associate

About Northeastern:
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and a world leader in experiential learning. The same commitment to connecting with the world drives our use-inspired research enterprise. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Our campuses in Charlotte, N.C., San Francisco, Seattle, and Toronto are regional platforms for undergraduate and graduate learning and collaborative research. Northeastern pursues advanced research in security and materials at the Innovation Campus in Burlington, Massachusetts, and in coastal sustainability at the Marine Science Center in Nahant, Massachusetts.

About the Opportunity:
The Experimental High-Energy Physics group at Northeastern University in Boston has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate to work on the CMS experiment at CERN.

The Northeastern CMS group has leading involvements in the operation and upgrade of the endcap muon system as well as the operation and upgrades of the electromagnetic calorimeter and the Level-1 trigger. Physics efforts include searches for phenomena beyond the standard model, di-Higgs boson studies, and precision electroweak and QCD measurements. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the upgrade of the CMS endcap muon system and Level-1 muon trigger track finder, as well as to take a leading role in physics data analysis. The candidate will also have the opportunity to work with Ph.D. and undergraduate students.

A Ph.D. or equivalent degree in experimental particle physics by the time of the appointment is required.

Preferred Qualifications:

Candidates should have a strong record of recent accomplishments in data analysis and in detector hardware or software. For further details about the position, please contact Prof. Barberis.

Additional Information:
Applications, including a CV with publication list, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation, should be sent directly to Prof. Emanuela Barberis ( ).
