Postdoctoral Associate Experimental Particle Physics @ Cornell University

The Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE) at Cornell University has openings for one or possibly two Postdoctoral Associate to work on the CMS experiment at the LHC. The Cornell CMS group has a broad involvement in many aspects of the experiment, from data analysis to detector operations and HL-LHC detector upgrades.

We are particularly interested in strengthening the group on design and integration of the HL-LHC forward pixel detector and in the track trigger as well as analysis of LHC collision data. The successful candidate would be based largely in Ithaca for FPIX work, while being based at CERN is a possibility for other activities.

A PhD in experimental high energy physics is required. Appointments are nominally for one year with the possibility of renewal up to five years total, subject to mutual satisfaction and the availability of funds under our NSF grant. Applications should be submitted at and should include a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation. Complete applications will be considered immediately. For information about the position, contact Prof. Jim Alexander at

Exceptional candidates will be considered for the Karl Berkelman Research Fellowship in experimental particle physics. A Karl Berkelman Fellow is appointed for three years, with the possibility of extension upon review. In addition to his/her salary, the Karl Berkelman Fellow will receive a $5,000 annual research supplement. This Fellowship honors the distinguished Cornell faculty member Karl Berkelman, former Director of the Laboratory of Nuclear Studies and Goldwyn Smith Professor of Physics. Berkelman was a founding member of the CLEO Collaboration whose leadership in the Laboratory, strong support for young physicists, and broad expertise in both particle physics and accelerator design serve as inspiration for all who now follow him.
