Post-doctoral Research Associate Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions, CERN-CMS Experiment Purdue University


The Purdue High Energy Nuclear Physics group studies relativistic heavy-ion collisions as members of the RHIC-STAR and LHC-CMS experiments. Our primary physics interests are in the areas of particle correlations and heavy flavor production to elucidate the properties of high-density QCD. A post-doctoral research associate position is available within the group for CMS. The position can start as early as January 1, 2015, and applications are open until the position is filled. The successful candidate is expected to station at CERN, to lead a significant physics initiative, and to participate in run preparation, data taking, and possibly upgrade projects. This appointment is for one year, renewable up to three years. A Ph.D. in physics or a related field is required at time of appointment. Applicants should send their curriculum vitae and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to Prof. Fuqiang Wang at Purdue University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
