*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The experimental high-energy physics group at Duke University is inviting applications for a postdoctoral research associate on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.

The faculty at Duke University are active in ATLAS, Mu2e, Belle II, various neutrino experiments, and LSST. Within ATLAS, the HEP group has particular interest in searches for new physics with the heavy vector bosons and top quarks, and has a history of leadership in precision electroweak measurements, Higgs physics, and jet reconstruction and tagging techniques. The group has a major involvement with the ATLAS tracking detectors and triggers, including TRT operations, silicon tracking software, track and jet triggering, and the new ITk silicon strip detector upgrade.

The successful candidate is expected to play a significant role in the development of silicon tracking software and track-triggering for the current and the upgraded ATLAS detector, and the physics analysis of ATLAS data. This position is based primarily at CERN.

Qualified candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interest and experience, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted at AcademicJobsOnline (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/24300).

Questions regarding this search can be directed to Professor Ayana Arce (atarce@phy.duke.edu), Professor Al Goshaw (goshaw@phy.duke.edu), Professor Ashutosh Kotwal (ashutosh.kotwal@duke.edu), or Professor Mark Kruse (mkruse@phy.duke.edu).

Applications received by March 17th will receive full consideration. The position will remain open until filled. Members of the Department of Physics at Duke University carry out research in many areas, including astrophysics, atomic, molecular, and optical physics, biophysics, condensed matter, particle and nuclear physics and accelerator physics. The department strives to foster a vibrant and inclusive intellectual community at the graduate, postdoctoral, and faculty level.
