Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Experimental Particle Physics at University of Oslo in Norway, 2013

Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is co-funded by the Department of Physics, University of Oslo and the Research Council of Norway under the project “CERN-Related High Energy Particle Physics Research”. Fellowship duration is of three years which covers salary. For international students English language proficiency is required. Good programming skills and experience is essential. Online application must be submitted by 30 September 2013.. The selected candidate is expected to work within ATLAS, which is one of the experiments at CERN’s “Large Hadron Collider” (LHC), a proton-proton collider, where data-taking at high luminosity and energy is expected to restart in April 2015. The present ATLAS analysis involvements of the Oslo group include Higgs boson searches and measurements, Supersymmetry searches in final states containing leptons, and searches for exotic particles such as new gauge bosons (W’, Z’) and gravitons. The group is heavily involved in distributed computing and the ATLAS detector upgrade, with activities in 3D-silicon pixel detector development. The research program is carried out within the HEPP project in close collaboration with the University of Bergen.. This fellowship is available for pursuing postdoctoral research at University of Oslo in Norway.
