Research position in the Physics and Astronomy department focused on High Energy Physics research. The successful candidate will contribute to advancing our knowledge of fundamental particles.
Expectations are for the successful candidate to make meaningful contributions to an analysis focused on reinterpreting the results of an ATLAS Experiment search for fundamental particles. They will be expected to learn to use MadGraph to generate new models, validate their output, and use the existing framework for analysis reinterpretation. They will also be attended to attend and report at weekly meetings.
Duties are 5-10 hours a week of running simulation software and analyzing output results. If the project is not completed in the Fall semester, it could extend to the Spring (with the same student). While some work can be done asynchronously, the student will be expected to join for meetings that will be scheduled during work hours according to their schedule.
