POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

EXPERIMENTAL HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS

AT THE CMS EXPERIMENT

WITH THE CINVESTAV PHYSICS DEPARTMENT

The high-energy physics group at the Cinvestav Physics Dept. invites applications for a posdoc opening within the group research programme 'Fronteras de la Ciencia' ('Frontiers of Science'). The candidate will be working for the CMS experiment in data analysis, detector operation and/or instrumentation, with periodic stays at CERN.

The Mexican node at CMS includes 5 senior researchers, a posdoc and several Ph. D. and Ms. Sc. students, and is involved in the operation of the CMS muon detector and the CMS upgrade for phase II (HL-LHC). Our group has a long trajectory of searches and precise measurements of the properties of bottom hadrons, and currently leads several studies regarding exotic hadrons (possible tetraquark/pentaquark states) and bottom baryons. The group seeks to extend this participation to the Higgs and BSM sectors.

Expected starting date for the posdoc is September, 2016. Contract will be signed for one year and can be extended for another year upon mutual agreement. Interested candidates must send application materials as soon as possible, including:

1. CV.
2. Brief research statement summarizing her/his expertise in high-energy physics.
3. Two letters of recommendation, written by researchers working in closely related physics; to be sent to the e-mails given below.

* Due to the terms of reference of the 'Fronteras de la Ciencia' call, only those candidates who obtained a Ph. D. between 22 May 2010 and 21 May 2015 are eligible. Candidates who have already received funding from Conacyt posdocs for two years are not eligible, either.

Please contact Heriberto Castilla (castilla@fis.cinvestav.mx) and/or Iván Heredia (iheredia@fis.cinvestav.mx) in case of any doubt about the application procedure. Application documents must be sent to these e-mail addresses.

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

EXPERIMENTAL HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS

AT THE BELLE II EXPERIMENT

WITH THE CINVESTAV PHYSICS DEPARTMENT

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position at the Physics Department of CINVESTAV (Mexico City) within the context of the Frontier Science projects supported by the Mexican National Council of Science and Technology (CONACyT).
The successful applicant* will work in the research group that participates in the Belle II experiment, and eventually play a key role in the detector operations and/or software development, and data analysis. The position will be based at CINVESTAV (negotiable), with requisite sojourns in Japan (at KEK).
The Mexican Belle II group is currently involved in the construction of the Belle II luminosity monitor and in the operations of the experiment distributed computing. The group is pursuing an exciting physics program that searches for new sources of lepton number/flavor and CP violation in tau and B decays. The candidate is expected to contribute in these efforts or to get involved in other important physics topics in the experiment (SM, BSM, QCD, exotics, etc.)
The appointment is expected to begin in April 2016, for an initial period of up to one year, with the potential for a second year extension subject to mutual satisfaction. Information of the CINVESTAV High Energy Physics group can be found at:
http://gae.fis.cinvestav.mx
Interested candidates should submit by March 13, 2016 application materials (curriculum vitae and research statement) and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Profs. Eduard De La Cruz Burelo ( eduard@fis.cinvestav.mx ) and Iván Heredia ( iheredia@fis.cinvestav.mx ).
* The applicant must have obtained her/his PhD in physics not earlier than June 2010 (limitation imposed by CONACyT).
