Post Doctoral Fellow
Experimental High Energy Physics
UNIVERSITY of CINCINNATI
The Experimental High Energy Physics (HEP) group in the Department of Physics at the University of Cincinnati seeks candidates for a post-doctoral fellow position associated with IRIS-HEP, the Institute for Research and Innovation in High Energy Physics (see http://iris-hep.org/). The individual hired will work in either the Innovative Algorithms group or the Data Analysis Systems group. The primary focus of our work in Innovative Algorithms is developing Machine Learning algorithms with applications in the LHCb reconstruction and trigger project. The primary focus of our Data Analysis Systems work is developing GPU-friendly, thread-parallel algorithms that can be used to do amplitude analyses in experimental high energy physics and closely allied fields, with high-statistics LHCb charm and B-physics analyses as specific use cases. This position will be based either at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland or in Cincinnati, OH.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in experimental HEP or a closely related field.
- Extensive experience building production-quality, sustainable, software written in C++ and/or CUDA
- Significant experience analyzing high energy physics data
- The ability to communicate effectively
