TRIUMF is Canada's particle accelerator centre, and one of the world's leading laboratories for particle and nuclear physics and accelerator-based science. We are an international centre for discovery and innovation, advancing fundamental, applied, and interdisciplinary research for science, medicine, and business.
The ATLAS group at TRIUMF is strongly involved in the Higgs, Supersymmetry, and Exotics physics programs. TRIUMF built significant parts of the ATLAS hadronic endcap calorimeter and hosts an ATLAS Tier-1 data centre. For the LHC phase-1 upgrades, TRIUMF is constructing thin gap muon chambers for the New Small Wheel in collaboration with Canadian universities. For the phase-2 upgrades, TRIUMF is making significant contribution to the Silicon Inner Tracker (ITk) detector and LAr electronics in close collaboration with a number of Canadian universities.
We are currently seeking a Research Scientist to join the group and provide scientific leadership in the field of experimental collider physics, and make leading contributions to the ATLAS physics program. The successful applicant will establish a visible ATLAS data analysis program, train students and postdocs, and will be expected to support their research activities through research grants obtained from funding agencies in Canada and abroad.
Applicants for this position must possess:
A strong background, training, and PhD in particle physics, with demonstrated research experience
Demonstrated leadership and supervisory skills
Effective presentation and planning skills
Critical scientific thought; effective problem solving and experimental strategy skills
Strong communication skills, both oral and written
Excellent relationship building skills, and the ability to function effectively in a team environment
This is a full-time TRIUMF Board Appointed tenure-track appointment, and is considered equivalent to a faculty position at a Canadian university. This appointment will be at the equivalent rank of an Assistant Professor, but in exceptional cases other levels can be considered.
Applications should include a statement of research accomplishments and interests, and arrange for at least 3 referees to submit reference letters directly to the email contact below.
