BROWN UNIVERSITY Experimental High Energy Physics

The experimental particle physics group at Brown University has immediate openings for a least two postdoctoral research associate positions to work on the CMS Experiment.

The group is led by Profs. Cutts, Heintz, Landsberg, and Narain, and plays leading roles in the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. We are pursuing an exciting physics program at the LHC. Our group is actively engaged in searches for new physics, including flavor anomalies, Higgs boson physics, and top quark physics. We are engaged in various applications of machine-learning techniques in HEP. We are major contributors and hold institutional responsibilities for the operations of the silicon strip tracker, the hadron calorimeter, and the R&D of Phase 2 HL-LHC upgrades of the outer tracker and the endcap calorimeter of CMS.

We offer challenging opportunities associated with our responsibilities in CMS and exciting possibilities in the analysis of the discovery-quality data of LHC Run 2 and forthcoming Run 3. The successful applicant is expected to take a leading role in CMS physics analysis and actively participate in our detector operations responsibilities. Participation in the R&D for the CMS upgrade is also a possibility. A Ph.D. in experimental particle physics is required and experience with data analysis and/or hardware is preferred.

Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae and arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted online at For full consideration, applications should be submitted by August 15, 2022. The position will remain open until filled. For inquiries, please contact Prof. Meenakshi Narain at
