*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Fermilab Theoretical Physics Department and the Scientific Computing Division expect to make a Research Associate postdoctoral appointment for a 3-year term beginning July 2018.

We aim to develop a new open-source matrix element integration and event distribution framework that leverages the full power of high-performance computing. This will allow much more complex background calculations, and enable the scalability of event generators such as Sherpa, Pythia and Herwig. The project is partially funded the US Department of Energy's "Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing" program and will be a close collaboration of Pythia (Stefan Prestel, Stephen Mrenna) and Sherpa developers (Stefan Hoeche), and with project members at Fermilab, SLAC and ANL (Taylor Childers).

The successful applicant is expected to work with the project members on the construction of this framework, and should bring expertise in Monte-Carlo event generators and parallel computing.

We have strong ties to experimental groups interested in high-energy collider physics and neutrino physics. Further information about our groups can be found at http://theory.fnal.gov/ and http://computing.fnal.gov/.

Applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, a publication list and the names of three senior scientists who should directly provide letters of recommendation. Applications received before June 10, 2018 will given full consideration.

Fermilab is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.
