Job Description

Job description:

The experimental high-energy particle physics group at Rice University invites applications for an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate to join our efforts on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.


The Rice high-energy experimental group consists of three faculty members (Acosta, Ecklund, Padley), two postdoctoral research associates, and six graduate students, working on CMS. Additionally, a closely allied heavy ion experimental group includes two faculty members (Geurts, Li), research staff, and graduate students, also contributing to CMS. Further information on our group is available at


Rice contributes to operations and upgrades for the CMS silicon pixel detector, the endcap muon system, the trigger-DAQ system, and the endcap timing layer. The Rice group plays an active role in the high-luminosity LHC Upgrade of the Inner Tracker, where we contribute to the forward pixel system (TFPX) readout electronics: module HDI flex circuits, on-detector opto-electronics, and ATCA back-end readout and control electronics.


The CMS group has a strong background in physics analysis. We are presently active in searches for physics beyond the standard model and measurements of Higgs boson production and properties. We continue to look forward to the opportunities for the ongoing Run 3 and at the high-luminosity LHC after upgrades, with broad interests spanning electroweak, Higgs, top, and beyond the standard model physics.


The successful applicant will take on leadership roles in both the analysis of CMS data and the Inner Tracker TFPX upgrade. Experience with electronics, silicon detectors, and/or data acquisition is advantageous; relevant analysis experience is especially valuable. The position is based at Rice University, with some travel to CERN required. An extended posting at CERN is also possible.


Applicants with a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics or closely related fields will be considered. Qualified candidates should apply electronically by sending a curriculum vita, brief description of research experience and interests, and contact information of three references to


Electronic submissions in pdf format are preferred. Application materials received by July 8, 2024 will be assured full consideration. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until an appointment is made.
