Post-Doctoral research position on the CMS Experiment at IHEP, CAS


The CMS-IHEP group at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, has a postdoctoral research position available for work on the CMS Experiment at CERN. Candidate is expected to work on data analysis of Higgs Physics, new physics beyond  the standard model, or studies of the top quark etc. Currently, CMS-IHEP group is also dedicated to the Muon CSC detector phase 0 upgrade for 2015 date taken.

Position is for an initial period of two years with possible extension for an additional year. Research associate is expected to be located at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland and at IHEP, in Beijing, China.

PhD. in experimental particle physics by the time of the appointment is required. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, a statement of research interests and a list of publications. Also, three letters of reference should be arranged. All material should be submitted via email to by April 30th, 2013.

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) is a general-purpose detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It is designed to investigate a wide range of physics, including the search for the Higgs boson, SUSY, extra dimensions, and particles that could make up dark matter etc.. The CMS experiment is one of the largest international scientific collaborations in history, involving 4300 particle physicists, engineers, technicians, students and support staff from 179 universities and institutes in 41 countries.
