Research Assistant Professor in Experimental Particle Physics
Vanderbilt University Department of Physics and Astronomy
United States


The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Vanderbilt University seeks an outstanding individual for a non-tenure track faculty position in experimental particle physics (EPP).  A Ph.D. in physics is required. The successful candidate is expected to work at and represent the Vanderbilt-based EPP research group’s collaboration in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the LHC, CERN (Switzerland). Responsibilities will include work within the Beam Radiation Instrumentation and Luminosity (BRIL) Detector Performance Group of the CMS collaboration.  The BRIL work involves overseeing the luminosity measurement using the pixel luminosity telescope, proton beam conditioning monitoring, and radiation monitoring/simulation.  The successful applicant will have a leadership role in software analysis of proton-proton collision data to search for the presence of new physics, such as the Dark Matter particle and the measurement of the properties of Higgs boson.


Ph.D. in physics is required.  Successful applicant's prior experience in research and development of algorithms for particle recognition, as well as hardware research and development for high-energy experiments considered a high priority.

Application Instructions

Application should submit: 1) cover letter, 2) full Currlculum Vitae, 3) three letters of recommendation, 4) statement of research interests.
