The experimental particle physics group at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for a postdoctoral research position to work on the ATLAS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, starting Spring 2020.
The researcher, based at CERN, will work primarily with Prof. Daniel Whiteson, and will contribute to searches for new phenomena, as well as development and application of machine learning and computational tools for particle physics more broadly.
The ATLAS group at UCI consists of Profs Daniel Whiteson, Anyes Taffard and Andrew Lankford, and enjoys a close and fruitful relationship with the UCI theory and phenomenology group, as well as local experts in machine learning at the UCI Center for Machine Learning.
The applicant should have, or be about to gain, a Ph.D. in particle physics, and is expected to have experience from at least two years of active participation in a leading international particle physics experiment. The applicant should have expertise in data analysis techniques and software systems used in high-energy physics as well as Unix operating systems and the C++ programming language. Experience in modern deep learning and GPU programming is preferable.
Informal inquiries can be directed to Prof. Whiteson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications will be reviewed as they are received, and the position will remain open until filled.
