The São Paulo Research and Analysis Center (SPRACE) is opening postdoctoral positions for outstanding research fellows to work in association with the UNESP group on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Grant funds are provided by FAPESP, the São Paulo Research Foundation.
The SPRACE research team is engaged in two CMS physics analysis groups: Exotic physics (Beyond the Standard Model) and Heavy Ion physics. SPRACE also operates a WLCG Tier-2 cluster and is responsible for the implementation of a state-wide grid infrastructure, GridUNESP, which serves more than 100 research groups from different scientific communities. SPRACE is also involved in R&D activities on the conceptual design, simulation and proof-of-concept of the data acquisition (DAQ) electronics of the outer tracker detector of the CMS experiment.
