Research Positions on CMS experiment at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Beijing, and CERN


The Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), (IHEP)invites applications for two research positions, to work on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

The IHEP CMS group presently consists of 10 research staff, 8 postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. The group has contributed significantly to the Endcap Muon System, and is now involved in the Endcap Calorimeter upgrade and L1 trigger upgrade projects. The group also has strong participation in a variety of physics analyses.

Successful applicants for the research positions will be expected to play a leading role in physics analyses at the CMS experiment. Applicants are required to hold a Ph.D. in physics, which should have been conferred within the last five years. They should demonstrate a strong research record that includes at least two years of postdoctoral research in experimental high-energy physics, and they should have potential for independence and leadership in a high-energy physics experiment research group.

The initial appointment is for a three-year term, renewable depending upon the performance of the candidate and funding availability.

We are flexible as to whether the successful applicants will be based at CERN or in Beijing.

Questions about the position may be addressed to Dr. Mingshui Chen (

Interested candidates should submit their application, including curriculum vitae with publication list, and a statement of research interests, and arrange to have three letters of reference sent by email to The review of applications will begin on February 10, 2017, but the search will remain open until the positions are filled.
