Position Description:    

The ATLAS group at Northern Illinois University (NIU) seeks outstanding candidates for an opening as a post-doctoral Research Associate position to work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.

The successful candidate is expected to make major contributions to track trigger upgrades at ATLAS (FTK, as well as the future HTT upgrade), and to help lead physics analyses in the Higgs→diphoton final state, including, but not limited to, hh→yybb searches and Higgs boson cross section measurements. The candidate will be expected to supervise students. There may also be opportunities to get involved in the future in HL-LHC computing efforts.

The position will be based at CERN. Applications should be submitted with a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, at least three letters of reference, and a statement of research interests.

The initial appointment will be for one year, and is renewable contingent upon mutual satisfaction and continuation of funding. Women and members of other underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
