*** The account for HEP Physics, Brown University has expired, and no new applications will be accepted. ***


The experimental particle physics group at Brown University has immediate availability for a postdoctoral research associate. The group is led by Profs. Cutts, Heintz, Landsberg, and Narain, and plays leading roles in the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. We are pursuing an exciting physics program at the 13 TeV energy regime opened up by the LHC, with the recent Higgs boson discovery and the potential of other major discoveries. Our group is active in searches for new physics, Higgs boson physics, and top quark physics. We are major contributors and hold institutional responsibilities for trigger, computing, hadron calorimeter, silicon tracker, and the HL-LHC upgrade of the outer tracker and endcap calorimeter of CMS. Our group also has a strong presence at the LHC Physics Center at Fermilab. We offer challenging opportunities associated with our responsibilities in CMS and exciting possibilities in the analysis of the discovery-quality data of the 13 TeV LHC Run 2 and Run 3. The successful applicant is expected take a leading role in CMS physics analysis, help maintain our detector responsibilities, and/or spearhead R&D for the CMS upgrade. A Ph.D. in experimental particle physics is required and experience with data analysis and/or hardware are preferred. Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae and arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted online at For full consideration, applications should be submitted by April 20, 2018, but the position will remain open until filled.
