The University of Minnesota Physics Department has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral research associate to work on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
The CMS group at the University of Minnesota (Strobbe, Mans, Rusack) has leading roles in a variety of physics analyses, ranging from searches for new particles to precision measurements of the Higgs boson, as well as heavy involvement in the CMS endcap calorimeter upgrade project for the High-Luminosity LHC.
The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Prof. Roger Rusack
80%: Preparation of CMS data sets for public release. This includes organizing the data, producing the metadata and documentation so that the data can be released to the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. Also included is the application of standard machine learning techniques to establish benchmark performance standards against which any new AI tool can be compared. 10%: Supervision of graduate students and/or undergraduates participating in relevant research 10%: Communicating research to the broader community by writing papers, submitting them for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Giving presentations at universities, presenting results at domestic and international conferences, and participating in workshops.
Other duties of a similar scope as assigned.
