Postdoctoral Research Associate
About the Opportunity
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 Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS)
experiment at CERN.
The Northeastern Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) group has leading
involvements in the operation and upgrade of the electromagnetic
calorimeter, the endcap muon system, the Level-1 trigger, and the
new MIP timing detector. Physics efforts include searches for
phenomena beyond the standard model, di-Higgs boson studies, and
precision electroweak and QCD measurements. The successful
candidate will contribute to the operation and upgrade of the CMS
electromagnetic calorimeter and will be expected to play a leading
role in physics analysis using electromagnetic objects in the final
state. The candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute
to the new CMS MIP timing detector upgrade. In addition, the
candidate will have the opportunity to work with graduate students,
as well as undergraduate coop students. Candidates should have a
strong record of recent accomplishments in data analysis and in
detector hardware or software.
