Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical High Energy Physics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Notre Dame announces a postdoctoral position in Theoretical High Energy Physics to begin in Fall 2023. The position is for two years but can be renewed for a third contingent on funding and performance.

The faculty of the Notre Dame High Energy Theory group includes Antonio Delgado, Chris Kolda, Adan Martin and Yushin Tsai. We are joined by a large experimental group with active participation in CMS, DUNE, and IceCube, and with whom we interact regularly. Our group also shares many interests in common with ND's astrophysics and cosmology group, and maintains close ties to Fermilab and to neighboring institutions in Chicago and the greater Michigan-Illinois-Indiana region.

Applicants should submit (electronically) a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications and a statement of research interests, and arrange to have letters of recommendation sent by three senior physicists. These correspondences should be submitted by December 15, 2022 in order to receive full attention.

Postdoctoral research associates to work on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider

The University of Notre Dame High Energy Physics Group has an immediate opening for two Post-doctoral research associates to work on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.

The CMS group at Notre Dame (Hildreth, Jessop, Lannon, Osherson, Wayne) has played a leading role in the construction, commissioning and operation of the CMS hadron calorimeter, and the electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL) and has extensive roles in software development, high level trigger (HLT) operations, and computing. The group is also actively engaged in developing and coordinating detector upgrade projects for the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC), including the ECAL/HCAL, MIP timing detector (MTD), tracker data processing systems, Level 1 track trigger, and computing. Group members have leadership roles in CMS physics analyses with interests in Higgs coupling measurements (ttH and anomalous Higgs decays), top physics (including searches for new physics using effective field theory techniques), searches for exotic particles decaying through boosted topologies, and electroweak physics. The successful candidate is expected to play an important role in the analysis of CMS data and make significant contributions to either the tracker and track trigger upgrades or computing activities. Candidates with an interest in online or realtime software, digital electronics, machine learning, data science, or high performance analysis software are especially encouraged to apply.

The group is looking for energetic applicants who are enthusiastic about learning new skills. Applicants should have, or be about to obtain, a Ph.D. in Experimental Particle Physics. For full consideration, applications should be received by September 18, 2022. For inquiries, please contact Profs. Marc Osherson (mosherso@nd.edu) or Kevin Lannon (klannon@nd.edu).

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications to which they have made significant contributions, a description of research interests and skills, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent via the Academic Jobs Online website at the given link.

The Department is committed to diversifying its faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and students and encourages applications from women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups. Moreover, Notre Dame prohibits discrimination against veterans or disabled qualified individuals, and requires affirmative action by covered contractors to employ and advance veterans and qualified individuals with disabilities in compliance with 41 CFR 60-741.5(a) and 41 CFR 60-300.5(a).

Tenure-track Faculty in Materials Discovery / Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

The Stavropoulos Center for Complex Quantum Matter at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in materials discovery. The successful candidate should demonstrate the capacity to lead research projects in materials synthesis and characterization of novel quantum materials (quasi-two dimensional, topological, kagome crystals, magnetic materials, etc), and have experience with multiple crystal growth techniques. The appointment is open at all levels from assistant to full professor.

The condensed matter group at Notre Dame consists of 6 experimental and 4 theoretical faculty, doing research in hard condensed matter, quantum materials, complex networks, and biophysics. The newly established Stavropoulos Center for Complex Quantum Matter is headed by László Forró, the Aurora and Thomas Marquez Chair Professor of Physics. The Center's mission is to synthesize materials of interest for novel technologies and to study them with cutting-edge experimental and theoretical methods. We seek faculty members committed to developing and sustaining an environment of inclusive excellence in research, teaching, and service. The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to develop a highly successful research program, attract independent research funding, teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and engage with students from diverse backgrounds. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree. Salary and rank will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s experience and research accomplishments. The expected start date is January 2023.

The Department of Physics at Notre Dame has 41 tenured and tenure-track faculty; another 22 research, teaching and concurrent faculty; 100+ graduate students; and ~120 undergraduate physics majors. Additional information about the department and the College of Science can be found at http://physics.nd.edu and http://science.nd.edu respectively.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, detailed research plans, and a statement of teaching and mentoring. Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation. Review of completed applications will begin on July 1, with a final deadline of October 31, 2022.

The Department is committed to diversifying its faculty, and encourages applications from women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups.

Qualifications: Ph.D. in physics, physical chemistry, or materials science
