Postdoctoral Scientist in Experimental Particle Physics at the ATLAS Experiment

Postdoctoral Scientist in Experimental Particle Physics at the ATLAS Experiment

Stockholm University

Stockholm, Sweden

Project description

The elementary particle physics division at Stockholm University invites applicants for a two year postdoctoral position to work on the ATLAS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The main focus will be the analysis of ATLAS data to search for exotic heavy long-lived particles. The research will be carried out within SHIFT - Solving the Higgs Fine-Tuning Problem with Top Partners, a research project funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation.

Our main research topics are searches for supersymmetry, dark matter and di-Higgs production as well as measurements in the top-quark sector. We are a part of the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics (OKC), a rich scientific environment that comprises more than a hundred researchers working in both theory and experiment in the fields of astronomy, astrophysics and particle physics at both Stockholm University and the Royal Institute for Technology. The OKC hosts a vibrant research programme on dark matter, dark energy, transient and multimessenger astrophysics, structure formation, and related particle physics questions.

Main responsibilities

The successful candidate will play a leading role in ATLAS searches for signatures of long-lived particles. Service work for ATLAS (eg. calibration or data reconstruction) is also required, though the main focus of the position is on data analysis.

Qualification requirements

Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.

Assessment criteria

The degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances, which may involve sick leave, parental leave, clinical attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar.

In the appointment process, special attention will be given to proven experience in the analysis of data from large particle physics experiments. We are looking for a driven candidate with a deep interest in particle physics and with strong ability to work both individually and in groups. Good command of the English language is essential.
