Position Description:    

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

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for one or two postdoctoral research positions in Experimental Particle Physics. The successful candidates are expected to play a leading role in the analysis of the full Run-2 dataset from CMS experiment, support of the CMS silicon pixel detector calibration and alignment, and engage in Phase-2 upgrade of the silicon pixel detector, including development based on test beam data. The JHU group on CMS has contributed to the construction, software, calibration, and alignment of the silicon tracking detector and to the preparation of both Phase-1 and Phase-2 upgrades. The group has played a significant role in discovery and measurement of spin-parity and other properties of the Higgs boson, pursued searches for new beyond-the-standard-model phenomena and tests of electroweak theory, and engaged in the development of phenomenological tools for LHC data analysis.

The successful candidate is expected to have experience with modern analysis software and detector operation. A Ph.D. in particle physics is required. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
