*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The particle theory group at the University of Oregon anticipates having one postdoctoral scholar position in theoretical particle physics. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and a demonstrated capability to do independent research in particle theory. The position will start Fall 2019 and run for three years, contingent on good research progress and continued funding. The professors in the group consist of Spencer Chang, Tim Cohen, Graham Kribs, Dave Soper, and Tien-Tien Yu. Our interests are broad, including the Standard Model (quantum chromodynamics, jet substructure), physics beyond the Standard Model (Higgs physics, electroweak symmetry breaking, supersymmetry), and astrophysics/cosmology (dark matter, baryogenesis). The University of Oregon also has an experimental high energy physics group involved in the ATLAS experiment at LHC and an observational astrophysics group involved in the LIGO experiment.

We invite applications from qualified candidates who share our commitment to diversity. Interested candidates should submit cover letter, curriculum vitae with publication list and a research statement through Applicants should also arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent directly to the AJO website on their behalf. To ensure full consideration, please submit application materials by November 30, 2018. The position will remain open until filled. Inquiries may be addressed to Graham Kribs (
