Application Deadline : 31 October 2011
The Max-Planck-Institute for Physics is engaged in fundamental research in particle and astroparticle physics from both experimental and theoretical perspectives.
One main research activity is the participation in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.
The institute has contributed to the design, construction and commissioning of the Semiconductor Tracker, the Hadronic Endcap Calorimeter and the Muon Spectrometer of the ATLAS detector.
The data analysis and detector development for upgrades of the ATLAS de-tector are major current activities.
We invite applications for a postdoctoral position in experimental particle physics within our ATLAS Group.
Candidates are expected to contribute to the maintenance and operation of the ATLAS muon spectrometer, to the development and construction
of new muon detectors for ATLAS upgrades at high luminosities and to the data analysis, in particular to searches for supersymmetric particles or other extensions
of the Standard Model in which the group is engaged.
Salary and benefits are according to the German public service pay scale (TVöD Bund).
The contract is initially limited to three years with the possibility of extension.
The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer committed to increasing the participation of women wherever they are underrepresented.
The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply.
For questions concerning the position please contact Dr. Hubert Kroha (email@example.com).
Applicants should send a cover letter along with their curriculum vitae, list of publications and a statement of research interests
and arrange for three letters of recommendation to arrive no later than 31 October 2011 at the following address:
