The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in Experimental Particle Physics. The position entails the research on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The JHU group on CMS has contributed to construction, software, calibration, and alignment of the silicon tracking detector and to preparation of both Phase-1 and Phase-2 upgrades. The group has played a significant role in discovery and measurement of spin-parity and other properties of the Higgs boson, pursued searches for new beyond-the-standard-model phenomena and tests of electroweak theory, and engaged in development of phenomenological tools for LHC data analysis.

The successful candidate is expected to play a leading role in the analysis of the full Run-2 dataset from CMS, support of the CMS silicon pixel detector calibration and alignment, and engage in Phase-2 upgrade of the silicon pixel detector, including development based on test beam data. The successful candidate is expected to have experience with modern analysis software and detector operation. A Ph.D. in particle physics is required. Review of applications begins in December 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
