Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania to conduct research in experimental particle physics with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The successful candidate should have a PhD in experimental particle physics, have a strong interest in leading searches for physics beyond the standard model, and be highly motivated to work on the ATLAS trigger system for the HL-LHC. Experience with FPGAs and/or machine learning is desired but not required for these projects. There are also additional opportunities to get involved with the exceptional Penn electronics and instrumentation group.

Required application materials include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a statement describing your research interests and experience relevant to this postdoctoral fellowship. Applicants should include the names and contact information of three or more individuals who will provide letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on the 15th of August 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.

The Department of Physics & Astronomy is strongly committed to Penn's Action Plan for Faculty Diversity and Excellence, see for more information. The University of Pennsylvania is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Minorities, women, individuals with disabilities and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
