Open Positions

Post-Doctoral Position in Experimental High Energy Physics

The São Paulo Research and Analysis Center (SPRACE) is opening two postdoctoral positions for outstanding research fellows to work in association with the UNESP group on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Grant funds are provided by FAPESP, the São Paulo Research Foundation.

The SPRACE research team is engaged in two CMS physics analysis groups: Exotic physics (Beyond the Standard Model) and Heavy Ion physics. SPRACE also operates a WLCG Tier-2 facility and is responsible for the implementation of a state-wide grid infrastructure, GridUNESP, which serves more than 50 research groups from different scientific communities. SPRACE is now starting R&D activities on the conceptual design, simulation and proof-of-concept of a Level 1 trigger for the pixel tracking detector of the CMS experiment.

The position

The successful applicant is expected to:
  • take a leading role in the data analysis activities of SPRACE
  • help to comply with our responsibilities in the collaboration
  • participate in the R&D for the CMS upgrade
  • interact with different HEP groups worldwide
