The CMS department in the Particle Physics Division of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) seeks an outstanding candidate for an Associate Scientist position. The position provides unique opportunities for research in experimental physics through contributions to the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The successful candidate is expected to play a leading role in the construction of the CMS Outer Tracker sub-detector for the High Luminosity LHC and to contribute to data analysis.

The appointment is for an initial term of three (3) years and there exists the possibility for renewal for an additional two (2) years upon completion of a successful review after the first two (2) years; thereafter, the potential exists for eventual appointment without term limit.

We Are Looking For

• Ph.D. in Physics or relevant subject. • 2+ years of postdoctoral experience. • Demonstrated ability to carry out independent research in experimental particle physics or a similar field. • Demonstrated ability to either design, or build, or commission, or operate a sub-detector for HEP. • Experience with hardware and software for semiconductor detectors, including detector control, data acquisition and data analysis. • Experience in coordinating multi-disciplinary teams of physicists, engineers and technicians. • Excellent oral and written communication skills as demonstrated by presentations at conferences and a strong record of publications in professional journals.

Application Instructions
