Come to work at CERN

At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

Faculty Position in Experimental Particle Physics at Texas Tech University

About this job

Company & location
Texas Tech University, United States
Last updated
Sep 27, 2017

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas Tech University, as part of its strategic growth plan, invites applications for a tenure-track position in experimental particle physics at the assistant professor level; exceptional candidates at a more senior level may be considered. The starting date is September 2018. The members of the experimental particle physics group at Texas Tech (Akchurin, Kunori, Lee, Volobouev, and Wigmans) actively participate in the CMS experiment at CERN and maintain a rigorous R&D program in advanced detector physics. In addition to the ongoing beyond Standard Model searches, we share significant responsibilities for the upgrade of the CMS calorimeters for the high luminosity LHC. The group enjoys strong infrastructure support: the Advanced Particle Detector Laboratory is well-suited for R&D and production of detectors based on scintillator and silicon systems, and the High Performance Computing Center allocates substantial resources in support of the group’s analysis work. The university has recently been ranked in the Highest Research Activity category by the Carnegie Foundation.

We expect the new experimental faculty member to strengthen and complement the ongoing research in CMS, particularly in detector upgrade effort, or to initiate a new and significant research program in any area of experimental particle physics. Candidate must have a Ph.D. in physics and at least two years of post-doctoral experience, possess an outstanding research record, and show promise of excellent teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidate is expected to garner extramural funding to support his/her research. Service to the department, college, and university is also expected.

Applicants should submit a vita, list of publications, statement of research interests and plans, teaching philosophy, and contact information for at least three references. Applications should be submitted online using requisition ID 11830. Inquiries should be sent to Professor Nural Akchurin ( Applications will be reviewed starting December 1st 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.

As an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, Texas Tech University is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. We actively encourage applications from all those who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community at Texas Tech University. The university does not discriminate on the basis of an applicant’s race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, genetic information or status as a protected veteran. Texas Tech welcomes consideration of dual career and professional couple accommodations.
