Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, Michigan State University

Position ID:MSU-Physics-HEPTRA [#8588]
Position Title: HEP Theory Postdoc
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:East Lansing, Michigan 48824, United States [map]
Subject Areas: Physics / HEP-Phenomenology (hep-ph), HEP-Theory (hep-th)
Starting Date:2017/08/15
Appl Deadline: (posted 2016/11/17, listed until 2017/05/17)
Position Description:    

The High Energy Theory group and the Institute for Mathematical and Theoretical Physics at Michigan State University welcome applications for a postdoctoral position in theoretical particle physics with emphasis on precision calculations in perturbative Quantum Field Theory. The appointment is for two years starting in the fall of 2017 or earlier.

Applications should be submitted online to Review of applications will begin on December 5, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled.

The group consists of ten faculty members: Sekhar Chivukula, Steve Hsu, Huey-Wen Lin, Andreas v. Manteuffel, Jon Pumplin, Wayne Repko (Emeritus), Carl Schmidt, Elizabeth Simmons, Dan Stump, and C.-P. Yuan, as well as six postdoctoral fellows and several graduate students. Ongoing research encompasses perturbative precision calculations, lattice QCD, beyond-the-standard-model scenarios, collider phenomenology, formal aspects of Quantum Field Theory, cosmology, and beam physics. The group has close interactions with an active Michigan State HEP experimental group and has a strong participation in CTEQ - a national collaboration of theorists and experimentalists. The Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Department of Mathematics at MSU provide excellent opportunities for interactions between Mathematics and Physics through the joint Institute for Theoretical and Mathematical Physics.

MSU is an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity employer and is committed to achieving excellence through diversity. The University actively encourages applications of women and minorities.
