Opening of a scientist staff position in particle physics

The Department of Particle Physics (DPhP) of the Institute of Research into the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (IRFU) at CEA Paris-Saclay opens a call for applications for a scientist staff position in particle physics in 2021.

DPhP comprises about 110 physicists. DPhP scientific themes include elementary components of matter at the highest energies at the CERN LHC collider, R&D for future accelerators, neutrino physics, gamma ray astronomy, observational cosmology, study of antimatter, study of gravitational waves, and instrumentation for societal applications.

We welcome applications from motivated experimental particle physicists with excellent scientific record and marked hardware profile, wishing to join the ATLAS experiment. The activities of the ATLAS group cover detector development (from R&D to commissioning for the central detector, the electromagnetic calorimeter and the muon spectrometer) and data analysis for Higgs boson physics, top quark physics and electroweak precision physics. Future activities are focused on phase-2 upgrades to prepare the detector for the LHC high luminosity phase, and the analysis of data from the third LHC data period expected to start in early 2022.

A professional experience of no more than about six years since the PhD is recommended.

Details to apply to this job offer are provided in the following document:
