Postdoctoral Research Associate Position on ATLAS or CMS with Tsinghua University

The Experimental High Energy Physics Group at Tsinghua University is seeking candidates for two Postdoctoral Research Associate positions to work on either the ATLAS experiment or the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The Tsinghua LHC group, led by Profs. Xin Chen and Zhen Hu, plays major roles in Higgs property measurements, vector-vector final states studies, beyond Standard Model physics searches, maintaining the overall operation and quality of the LHC data processing, and software development. The group is also actively involved in the upgrade of ATLAS silicon strip detector and CMS Gem detector for the high luminosity LHC.

The successful candidate is expected to play a leading role in ATLAS or CMS physics analyses and make contributions to both the hardware and software activities of the group. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in experimental high energy physics, excellent data analysis skills and the ability to carry out an independent research program. Primary locations for these positions may include Tsinghua University, CERN, or Fermilab LHC Physics Center, and are negotiable.

We will help the candidates to apply for “Shuimu Tsinghua Scholar”, a prestigious postdoctoral position targeting junior scholars at an early stage of their careers. The university will provide first-rate academic environment and a superior welfare package. The Shuimu Tsinghua Scholars will enjoy continuous support from two to six years. More details can be found here: http://news.tsinghua.edu.cn/publish/thunewsen/9671/2019/20190123141424017471067/20190123141424017471067_.html

We also support the candidate to apply for the Peng Huanwu Fellowship (Tsinghua) and Chung-Yao Chao Fellowship (IHEP China) once they are selected.

Interested candidates should provide a cover letter, a curriculum vita, a research statement, and at least three letters of recommendation. The selection of candidates for interviews will begin immediately and will continue until all positions are filled. For full consideration, applications should be submitted by April 30, 2019

For questions about the positions, please contact Prof. Xin Chen (xchen22@tsinghua.edu.cn) or Prof. Zhen Hu (zhenhu@tsinghua.edu.cn).
