The position will start Fall 2018 and run for three years, contingent on good research progress and continued funding.
Department Summary The Institute of Theoretical Science (ITS) is a research facility with 20 faculty members, four postdoctoral researchers, graduate students and visitors. The Institute is devoted to theoretical research in the physical sciences, high energy physics and gravity, and to developing students’ analytical and problem solving skills. Research is funded by grants obtained by faculty members from outside organizations, primarily the Federal government. The Institute has an international flavor as the faculty, students and visitors represent many countries and are participants in and organizers of international collaborations, conferences and workshops. The Institute is part of the University of Oregon’s dedication to quality research and instructional programs.
Position Summary The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will conduct research as part of the Theoretical Particle Physics group (Spencer Chang, Tim Cohen, Graham Kribs, Dave Soper and Tien-Tien Yu). Our interests are broad, including the Standard Model (quantum chromodynamics, jet substructure), physics beyond the Standard Model (Higgs physics, electroweak symmetry breaking, supersymmetry), and astrophysics/cosmology (dark matter, baryogenesis). The University of Oregon also has an experimental high energy physics group involved in the ATLAS experiment at the LHC and an observational astrophysics group involved in the LIGO experiment.
Minimum Requirements • A PhD in theoretical particle physics prior to the start of the position. • Demonstrated capability to do independent research in particle theory.
