Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory seeks highly qualified candidates for up to three (3) positions for a Postdoctoral Research Associate working on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Fermilab has a strong and exciting research program on CMS. Fermilab is the home of the LHC Physics Center (LPC) and plays a leading role in physics analysis on CMS in the areas of searches for physics beyond the standard model, studies of the Higgs Boson, and measurements of standard model processes. Each successful candidate will be highly motivated to conduct physics research and will be expected to lead in analysis of the full dataset of the 13 TeV proton-proton collisions acquired in run 2, and the 14 TeV collisions planned for run 3.

Fermilab has commitments to CMS in several areas within both the operation and upgrade of the experiment. Each successful candidate will be expected to contribute to technical research in one of the following areas: the timing detector, high granularity calorimeter, outer tracker, trigger or scientific computing.

Research Associates may be stationed at Fermilab, in Batavia, Illinois or at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland.

Positions are for an initial period of up to three (3) years, with the potential for extension considered on a yearly basis thereafter.
