The Department of Physics at the University of Washington invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position. The successful candidate will work on the IRIS-HEP project and the ATLAS experiment at the LHC with Prof. Gordon Watts.
The University of Washington Experimental Particle Physics group (EPE) consists of four professors, five post-docs, and five graduate students working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. We are a founding member of the recently funded IRIS-HEP project (Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for the HL-LHC, http://iris-hep.org). Our group's IRIS-HEP work is primary interested in developing analysis systems: enabling the expansion of HEP into the python-based analysis ecosystem and low latency analysis of large datasets. Our physics interests are focused on electroweak symmetry breaking and the search for exotic decays of the Higgs, especially in searches for Long Lived Particles. The University of Washington also has a strong phenomenology and theory group.
The successful applicant should have a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent at time of hire and be interested in contributing to both the software and physics program.
Applications should include a short letter of introduction, curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference. Application reviews will commence on January 1, 2019, and continue until the position is filled.
