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

The University of Zurich Physics Institute invites students with a masters degree in physics to apply for PhD student positions in experimental high-energy collider physics. The University of Zurich has experimental particle physics groups on CMS, LHCb, XENON, DARWIN, GERDA, CTA, SHIP, DAMIC, CONNIE as well as theoretical groups studying standard model processes and potential BSM extensions.

The successful candidate will be a member of the CMS collaboration at the LHC at CERN. Our CMS group is actively engaged in Higgs boson measurements and searches for physics beyond the standard model, machine-learning software, as well as designing, building, commissioning, and operating pixel detectors. The PhD candidate can expect a broad particle physics education, and will produce a PhD dissertation based on a combination of CMS data analysis, and contributions to the existing pixel detector as well as the phase 2 CMS pixel detector for the HL-LHC. Experience with particle detectors, computer programming, and physics analysis will be beneficial to the applicant during the selection process.

A masters degree in physics and a knowledge of particle physics are required. Applicants can have citizenship from any country. A proficiency in english is required. PhD positions are fully funded according to Swiss salary requirements, and typically last 3-4 years.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, research statement, CV with publication list, and the names/info of at least two references.

The application deadline is April 1, 2018.
