Postdoctoral Scholar in Experimental High Energy Physics with ATLAS

The Institute for Fundamental Science at the University of Oregon invites applications for up to two postdoctoral scholar positions in experimental high energy physics with the ATLAS experiment. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field by the date of appointment and a demonstrated ability to perform high caliber, independent particle physics research as well as the capability to mentor students. The Oregon high energy physics group has a strong and exciting research program with major commitments to ATLAS and FASER at the LHC, the LlGO gravitational wave observatory, and detector development for a next-generation of e+e- collider experiments such as the ILC. The successful candidates will support the Oregon group's work on the ATLAS collaboration, and will play a leading role in ATLAS data analysis in searches for physics beyond the standard model during Run 3 of the LHC. Depending upon the specific position, responsibilities could also include work on ATLAS upgrades for the High-Luminosity LHC, including the pixel subsystem of the Inner Tracker (ITk), Global Trigger, Event Filter Tracking, or other topics of interest to our group. There are also opportunities to take leading roles in commissioning and operating the Run 3 trigger system. The position could be based at CERN or at Oregon.

We invite applications from qualified candidates who share our commitment to diversity. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, a CV which includes a list of selected publications, and a brief statement of research interests. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent directly to the AJO website on their behalf. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than Feb 15, 2023 for full consideration. Applications will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled. Inquiries may be addressed to Laura Jeanty ( or Stephanie Majewski (
