Position Description:    

The High Energy Theory effort at Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking applications for a staff scientist position.

Applicants must have a strong research program in areas of interest to both the LANL HEP effort and the national and international programs in HEP. Of particular interest are the areas of neutrino physics, computational physics, and quantum information science as relevant to HEP and aligned with P5 priorities.

LANL has an active HEP program in both theory and experiment. The HEP theory group consists of staff scientists Daniele S. M. Alves, Tanmoy Bhattacharya, Michael L. Graesser, Rajan Gupta, and Emil Mottola. Their interests span particle phenomenology, physics beyond the Standard Model, field theory, lattice gauge theory, black hole physics, gravitational waves, and cosmology. LANL HEP experimentalists are leaders in short and long baseline neutrino experiments (MicroBoone, SBN, DUNE), as well as in the High Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) experiment. LANL HEP theorists actively collaborate with LANL HEP experimentalists and with LANL Nuclear Physics theorists and experimentalists (MAJORANA, Neutron EDM). The new staff scientist would also have the opportunity to strengthen connections between HEP and LANL's efforts in other disciplines, especially in Quantum Computation and Quantum Information Science.

Applicants whose research program overlaps with one or more of the aforementioned areas are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a description of research interests and goals. Applicants should also arrange for at least three letters of reference to be uploaded to this site.

To receive full consideration, applications must be received by Nov. 1st, 2018. However, applications may continue to be accepted past the deadline until the position is filled.
