Tenure Track Position in Experimental Particle Physics
The Department of Physics at Southern Methodist University in Dallas invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Experimental Particle Physics. The appointment will start in August 2018 or later. Outstanding candidates are invited to apply and are expected to have a Ph.D. in physics and have demonstrated experience and leadership ability within large collaborations. Current research at the Department of Physics at SMU is concentrated in the fields of particle physics and astrophysics. The experimental program includes ATLAS at the LHC, NOvA and DUNE at Fermilab, SuperCDMS and DESI. In ATLAS SMU has major responsibilities in the area of calorimeter electronics and trigger and is involved in the upgrade program for readout electronics.
