Post-doctoral Researcher in High Energy Nuclear Physics - University of Kansas
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher position in experimental high energy
nuclear physics with the University of Kansas beginning as early as February 1st, 2018. This
successful candidate will split their time working at CERN in Geneva Switzerland and the
University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas. Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in
experimental, nuclear science, high energy physics or related field. The KU nuclear group is
focused on heavy-ion physics with the CMS experiment at the LHC and is also investigating
opportunities at other facilities such as in the U.S.-based Electron Ion Collider. The successful
candidate will work on the analysis of recently collected and upcoming heavy-ion data on
photon-nucleus collisions. The group has ongoing physics analyses related to vector mesons,
dijets and two-particle correlations produced in photo-nuclear collisions. The successful
candidate will contribute to several aspects of the nuclear group's research program including
detector operation, data analysis, event simulation, publication of research results, and
preparation for future measurements. The successful candidate will support the KU group’s work
on measuring luminosity through the CMS BRIL project. For more information and to apply go
