The SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) is seeking up to two experimental Research Associates to work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The LHC presents ideal opportunities for physics at the energy frontier and experimental experience in a challenging environment of rapidly increasing luminosity. These openings allow participation in a selection of experimental areas that SLAC is involved in and a variety of physics topics at the LHC. The successful candidate may take the initial post at CERN. Information on the SLAC ATLAS group can be found on our web page http://www.slac.stanford.edu/exp/atlas/. The potential start time for this position is December 2016 / January 2017.
SLAC’s revolutionary X-ray laser is revealing intimate details of atoms and chemical reactions and making stop-motion movies of this tiny realm, with the goal of doing the same for living cells.
Our scientists are also exploring the cosmos, from the origin of the universe to the nature of dark energy, and developing the smaller, more efficient particle accelerators of the future.
Six scienti...sts have been awarded Nobel prizes for work done at SLAC, and more than 1,000 scientific papers are published each year based on research at the lab. As our second half-century unfolds, we’re just getting started.
