The Laboratory for Elementary-Particle Physics at Cornell University has an opening for two (2) Research Associates to work on the CMS experiment at the LHC. The Cornell group is involved in a broad array of activities in both data analysis and experimental infrastructure. Current analysis focusses primarily on searches for New Physics (e.g. SUSY), but also includes studies of Standard Model phenomena (e.g. top and W). Infrastructure responsibilities include pixel detector online software, trigger, electromagnetic calorimetry, core offline software, and both hardware and MC studies for future CMS tracking upgrades. A PhD in experimental high energy physics is required. Appointments are nominally for three years with the possibility for renewal, subject to mutual satisfaction and the availability of funds. Applications should be submitted at and should include a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation. All materials, including all letters of recommendation, must be received by February 15th, 2012. Complete applications will be considered immediately. Exceptional candidates may also be considered for the Karl Berkelman Fellowship (see For information about the position, contact Prof. Anders Ryd at Cornell is an equal-opportunity/affirmative action employer.
