Postdoctoral Scholar working on ATLAS


Seattle, WA


Job description:

The Department of Physics at the University of Washington invites applications for a post-doctoral scholar position beginning in Spring/Summer 2023. The successful candidate will work on the ATLAS experiment the LHC and the IRIS-HEP project with Professor Gordon Watts and a group searching for Long-Lived Particles using Machine Learning and building and integrating new tools into the field’s python analysis eco-system. The position is full-time.

The University of Washington Experimental Particle Physics group (EPE) consists of four professors, four post-docs, and four graduate students working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. Our physics interests are focused on electroweak symmetry breaking and the search for exotic decays of the Higgs, especially with searches for Long-Lived Particles. We are also a founding member of the IRIS-HEP project (Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for the HL-LHC, Our group’s IRIS-HEP work is in developing analysis systems: enabling the expansion of HEP into the python-based analysis ecosystem, low latency analysis of large datasets, and as a longer-term goal differentiable analysis and full integration of Machine Learning into analysis workflows.
