The Laboratory for Nucleon Structure (LSN) of the Nuclear Physics Department* at the University Paris-Saclay is looking for a postdoctoral research fellow to contribute to our ongoing activities. The new collaborator will take the responsibility of the analysis and interpretation of the Drell-Yan and charmonium production data collected by the COMPASS experiment at CERN, and will also take part in the ongoing activities in the laboratory. The postdoctoral term is for a minimum of one year, with an option for renewal.
The LSN laboratory has strong commitments in experimental and phenomenological investigations of the nucleon structure. Physicists from LSN play major roles in experiments at JLAB and at CERN, and collaborate in future projects like EIC in the USA and Compass++/Amber at CERN.
The successful applicant will become a full member of the COMPASS collaboration at CERN. Regular trips to CERN for presentations and discussions are expected.
Applicants should have a recent PhD degree in experimental nuclear or high-energy physics, expertise in data analysis and good programming skills. Prior experience with C++, Python and CERN software tools like ROOT and GEANT will be highly appreciated.
Applicants should send a resume and a brief description of research interests to the e-mail below. Reference letters will be asked at a later stage of the selection process.
