The High Energy Physics group at Boston University (Profs. Demiragli, Golf, Rohlf, Sperka, Suarez, Sulak) is seeking a postdoctoral associate to work on the CMS experiment. The BU CMS group plays a leading role in several projects, including the Level 1 and High-Level Trigger, CMS computing, readout electronics development, and/or operations, of multiple sub-detectors including Inner Tracker, HCAL, CSC/GEMs, and MTD. The group has a wide-ranging physics program that includes precision measurements and searches for exotic decays of the Higgs boson, top physics, dark matter, dark sectors, and Supersymmetry.

The successful candidate will join a diverse physics program and will be encouraged to develop their own ideas and interests. Examples of recent and ongoing efforts include top quark physics, searches for HH production, and searches for long-lived particles. The candidate will also have the opportunity to participate in the MIP Timing Layer upgrade, the CMS Muon system, and/or development of AI-based algorithms. Other potential activities include detector optimization and study of the physics potential of future colliders.

Candidates for the position should have a PhD in Physics and demonstrated excellence in high-energy physics research. Applicants should send a statement of interest and CV, and arrange for at least three letters of reference to be sent to Prof. Indara Suarez at

Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged.
