Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on the ATLAS experiment

Particle Physics

The Sub-department of Particle Physics, University of Oxford is seeking a highly qualified postdoctoral research assistant to work on the ATLAS experiment.

ATLAS is one of two general purpose detectors and will start its second major phase of data taking towards the end of 2014. The experiment is designed to maximise the chances of elucidating current understanding of particle physics and of discovery of new physics including electroweak symmetry breaking, exotic new physics and supersymmetry. The Oxford Group has wide experience in a large variety of physics analyses and is investing in core JetETmiss software. The postholder will be expected to take a leading role in a physics analysis and will be based at CERN. Up to 50% of the postholders time will be used to play a major role in the organisation, development and deployment of the JET/ETmiss software.

The post is supported by STFC and is full-time. The contract will be fixed-term and available from 30 April 2014. It will initially be for 2 or 3 years depending on qualifications. The successful candidate will hold a Doctorate in Particle Physics. The post will be based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.

Only applications received promptly by 12:00 noon UK time on 22 April 2014 can be considered. Please read the "Person Specification & Job Description" before preparing your application. You will be required to upload a CV, a description of research experience and interests and the names and addresses of three referees as part of your online application. In addition you should arrange for the three letters of reference to be sent to Sue Geddes (see below) by the closing date. Applications are acknowledged but not reference letters.Informal enquiries about this post may be made to T.Weidberg t [dot] weidberg [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk or C. Issever C [dot] Issever [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk

Two Post-doctoral Research Assistants to work on the ATLAS experiment

Particle Physics

The Sub-department of Particle Physics at the University of Oxford is seeking two highly qualified post-doctoral research assistants to work on the ATLAS experiment. 

ATLAS will start its second major phase of data taking towards the end of 2014. The experiment is designed to maximise the chances of discovery of new physics including electroweak symmetry breaking, exotic new physics and supersymmetry. The Oxford Group has wide experience in a large variety of analyses, and has responsibility for the SCT (silicon strip tracker) detector control system (DCS), and the hardware alignment system (FSI). Both post-holders will be expected to take a leading role in a physics analysis and will be based at CERN, where up to 50% of their time will be used to play a major role in the operation, development and maintenance of the SCT DCS and FSI systems.

The posts are supported by STFC and are full time. The contracts will be fixed term and available from 30 April 2014. They will initially be for 2 or 3 years depending on qualifications. The successful candidates will hold a Doctorate in Particle Physics. The post will be based in Geneva, Switzerland.
