General information

Reference : UMR7638-THUBIZ-030
Workplace : PALAISEAU
Date of publication : Monday, January 07, 2019
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 24 months
Expected date of employment : 1 June 2019
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : Monthly gross salary from 3007 to 3615 € depending on experience
Desired level of education : PhD

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the performance and system tests for the CMS High Granularity Calorimetry project as well as to one or the other legacy analysis exploiting the available collision data from the
LHC (Higgs or di-Higgs, VV scattering, Heavy Ion physics…). The balance is to be adjusted as a function of the highest benefit for the post-doc.


HGCAL test beam data analysis and implication on a complete analysis chain for physics using LHC data. Event selection strategy, reconstruction, background control and extraction of the final results.


This position requires good expertise in data analysis and high energy physics. A good understanding of the operation and operation of detectors and their components will be an undeniable asset. Experience with event generators, simulation, or data reconstruction at the LHC will allow you to be up and running quickly.

Work Context

The group is a founding member of the CMS Collaboration. It has designed and built the ECAL L1 trigger and it is responsible for its daily operation and monitoring. It has major involvement in particle reconstruction and
identification with the e/γ and τ Physics Object Groups, contributed to the development of the Particle Flow event reconstruction. It strongly contributed to the discovery of the H boson and some of the most cited papers in Higgs physics as well as in Heavy Ion physics. The group is currently involved in vector boson scattering physics, H boson and the scalar potential in general (H → 4l, ttH, HH
→ bbττ), as well as in Heavy Ions physics (quarkonia, jets, electroweak probes).
The group is also heavily involved in the high-granularity calorimetry project for HL-LHC high brightness prediction.

Constraints and risks

Regular travels at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland) and possibly longer stays on the site if needed.
