We invite applications for postdoc positions at the University of Zurich (UZH) in experimental particle physics research on the CMS experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. The CMS groups at UZH are engaged in data analysis, software, and operations of the CMS detector. In particular we are interested in performing in-depth investigations of the Standard Model of the top quark and Higgs boson and direct searches for physics beyond the SM. We have been involved in the construction of the original and phase-1 barrel pixel detector, and we have an important role in the pixel detector upgrade for the CMS phase-2. Moreover, we have also recently engaged in the L1 Trigger upgrade for the CMS phase-2. The successful candidates are expected to take a leading role in both fields, data analysis and detector upgrade. The positions are initially limited to three years with the possibility of extension. Applicants must hold a PhD degree obtained within the past 8 years and have a solid experience in experimental particle physics.

Applicants should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, publication list, and arrange at least three letters of recommendation to be submitted by the reference writers at:

Materials should be received by March 1st, 2020. Complete applications will be considered immediately. Applications received after that date will be considered until the position is filled. Enquiries concerning the positions can be made to Prof. Florencia Canelli (
