Graduate Fellowship Description
The experimental high-energy physics group at Simon Fraser University (hep.phys.sfu.ca) currently consists of 3 faculty members: Dugan O'Neil, Bernd Stelzer and Mike Vetterli, 3 postdocs and 7 graduate students involved in the ATLAS experiment at CERN (atlas.cern.ch). The group also has strong ties to TRIUMF (Canada's national subatomic physics laboratory) and other local HEP groups in Vancouver. We invite applications for a post-doctoral fellow / research associate position with a focus on analyzing data from the ATLAS experiment. This position can be based either at CERN or SFU (Vancouver).
We currently have several physics interests within our ATLAS group, including: Higgs physics (e.g. Higgs to tau and Higgs to WW), searches for new resonances, top physics and quark compositeness. The successful candidate would be expected to play a strong role in data analysis at ATLAS. Another important aspect is service to the experiment. The SFU group has taken leading roles in ATLAS global data quality monitoring, in-situ jet calibration and hadronic tau identification. We are also involved in the Phase-1 muon upgrade project to replace the ATLAS small wheel. Our group has also taken a leading role in the development of Canada's contribution to ATLAS computing. The SFU group has access to significant computing resources at SFU and through WestGrid (www.westgrid.ca) and has been instrumental in the planning of the Canadian Tier-1 center at TRIUMF. Finally, the successful candidate will be expected to participate in supervision of graduate students. Some of our postdocs choose to be resident at CERN. Vancouver based postdocs are expected to travel extensively to CERN.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in high-energy physics. The initial appointment will be for 1 year but will be renewable upon mutual agreement for 2 additional years. Salary will be competitive and will depend on experience.
Interested parties should contact Drs O'Neil, Stelzer and Vetterli by email: [email protected] The position is available immediately. Applications received after April 15, 2013, may not receive full consideration. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. [The position is subject to funding].
