The High Energy Physics group at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow position on the ATLAS experiment.

The UBC ATLAS group data analysis focus is on searches for a wide range of physics beyond the standard model (Long-Lived Particles, Vector-Like Quarks, Leptoquarks), precision measurements in the top sector (including EFT interpretation). It also has a strong involvement in the use of machine learning techniques in particle physics. The group is involved in the Canadian effort on the new inner tracker strip detector (ITk), in particular its readout system. It is also playing a leading role in track reconstruction and overall operation of the experiment’s present tracking system.

The successful candidate will initially be expected to play a leading role in the development and implementation of the Run-3 data analysis model as well as lead some of the group’s current and future physics analysis efforts. The position is expected to be based at UBC, with travel to CERN as needed and feasible.

Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. in particle physics by the time of appointment. All qualified persons are encouraged to apply. Interested individuals are invited to submit their applications via Academic Jobs Online. The application consists of a cover letter including a research statement, a CV, and 3 reference letters.

Applications received by October 31st, 2020 will receive full consideration. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

Please contact Profs Alison Lister (alister(at) or Colin Gay (cgay(at) for further information.
