Postdoctoral Research Associate position on the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

A postdoc position is available supported by California State University East Bay, and US-ATLAS.

The successful applicant would spend half their time on physics analysis with the Cal State East Bay ATLAS group and half time as a leader of the ATLAS software tutorial efforts. Cal State East Bay is a member of the California State University ATLAS cluster group and is currently active in Di-Higgs searches in the bb-tautau final state. Within the group the postdoc would be expected to take a lead role in analysis and also to help in mentorship of undergraduate researchers, particularly in the summer months.

The candidate is expected to organize and coordinate ATLAS software tutorials that take place at CERN on a regular basis, including the development of tutorials and relevant materials, and will ensure that all documentation for these events is up-to-date and easy-to-follow for new students. These tutorials are likely to be expanded in the future, and the candidate is expected to play a leading role in these efforts. Development of specific workshops to take place within the US and/or using US shared computing facilities may also be encouraged. Applicants with particular interest in software, reconstruction or physics analysis tools are encouraged to apply.

The position will be based at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland.

Inquiries related to this opening should be sent to,, and Applications should include a CV, a publication list and a short statement of research interest. The candidate should also provide the names of three referees who could be contacted for letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on 8 Feb 2019. Later applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

California State University, East Bay (CSUEB) serves the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. It has a diverse student body of approximately 15,000, as well as 900 faculty members. The Department of Physics awards the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees.
