Work Context

The Laboratoire Leprince-Ringuet (LLR) at École Polytechnique is seeking a post-doctoral researcher to work on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The group is a founding member of the CMS Collaboration. It has designed, built, and is responsible for the operation of the Level-1 trigger for the electromagnetic calorimeter. It has major involvement in particle reconstruction and identification with the e/gamma and tau Physics Object Groups, and contributed to the development of the Particle Flow event reconstruction. The group is one of the key actors for the discovery of a Higgs boson and the measurement of its properties within the CMS Collaboration and is among the leading groups in diboson and VBS physics. The group is also strongly involved in the developments for the LHC Phase-2 CMS upgrades with major responsibilities in the mechanics, trigger, and software algorithms of the future endcap calorimeters.
Regular trips to CERN are foreseen.
