A postdoctoral research associate position

Submitted by gpachoud on Wed, 04/06/2016 - 14:34

The experimental heavy-ion physics group at Rice University invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position to join our efforts on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The Rice heavy-ion physics group plays major roles in both the STAR experiment at RHIC and the CMS experiment at the LHC. On CMS, the Rice group has major responsibilities in online Level-1 (L1) and High-Level Trigger (HLT) development, and physics analyses of pp, pPb and PbPb data. Our physics interests focus on studying novel collective phenomena from pp, pPb to PbPb systems, as well as on a wide range of topics related to particle correlations. The successful candidate is expected to lead important analyses of the LHC Run-2 data and contribute to experimental activities and operations. The initial appointment is for one year, renewable based on satisfactory performance and funding availability.

Applicants must have, or be about to obtain, a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Qualified candidates should apply electronically by sending a curriculum vita and arranging for three letters of reference to be sent by e-mail to:

Professor Wei Li

The position will remain open until it is filled. Inquires may be addressed to wl33@rice.edu.
