The ATLAS group at the University of Freiburg (Prof. Karl Jakobs/

Dr. Christian Weiser) has an opening for a


                     Postdoctoral Position.


Our group has long-standing experience in Higgs boson physics, studies of

supersymmetry, Standard Model measurements and is also engaged in the

operation of the ATLAS semiconductor tracker (SCT) as well as in upgrade

projects on silicon strip detectors (ATLAS ITk).


The focus of the postdoc activities will be on studies of the physics of the Higgs

boson and electroweak symmetry breaking with LHC Run 2 data, in particular on

the investigation of H ! bb decays. Participation in an ATLAS combined

performance group (e.g. b-tagging) or detector operation (SCT) is also expected.


The position is limited to a duration of three years with the possibility of an

extension by one more year. Payment is according to the E13 salary level of the

German TV-L system. The University of Freiburg is an equal opportunity

employer. Suitable qualified women as well as persons with disabilities are

encouraged to apply.


Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in physics and should have

demonstrated excellent skills in particle physics data analysis. They are expected

to participate to some extent in teaching at the faculty.


The position is available from 1 September 2017.


Applications should be sent to christina.skorek@physik.uni-freiburg.de

until 15 July 2017, and should include a curriculum vitae, a short description of

the research experience and interests, copies of certificates of degrees, and the

names and contact addresses of three persons to be contacted for letters of
