Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is seeking applicants for an experimental Research Associate position in the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) group. The CDMS experiment has pioneered the use of cryogenic silicon and germanium detectors that measure both athermal phonons and ionization to perform sensitive searches for dark matter. These detectors provide unique capabilities for background rejection and offer unmatched sensitivity for the very small energy deposits associated with low-mass dark matter interactions. The SLAC CDMS group has major roles in the proposed SuperCDMS SNOLAB experiment, including overall responsibility for the detector payload and offline computing systems. The group is also making significant contributions to the analysis of the SuperCDMS Soudan experiment, which has been taking data for the past 2 years. The successful candidate will contribute to both the development of the SuperCDMS SNOLAB experiment, with a focus on the interface between the detector hardware and offline computing systems, and analysis of data from the SuperCDMS Soudan and SuperCDMS SNOLAB experiments. Selection of candidates will start June 1, 2014 and the processing of applications will continue until the position is filled.
