Researcher Positions

CMS Experiment Group

The CMS Experiment Group, Professors Mans, Rusack, & Strobbe, are looking for a researcher with a Ph.D in physics, statistics, computer science, machine learning, data science, or related field. The applicant will work on the CMS experiment to develop and apply findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) principles to artificial intelligence (AI) models and data in high energy physics. Transformational progress in AI has been driven by the ubiquity of large datasets such as ImageNet. Within HEP, creating and publishing open, realistic, and FAIR datasets can shed light on the unique challenges in this domain and usher in new groundbreaking and physics-inspired ideas in AI. To apply, visit the University of Minnesota Human Resources website, Job ID: 338242.

The CMS Experiment Group, Professors Mans, Rusack, & Strobbe, are looking for a researcher with a Ph.D in Experimental Particle Physics and is familiar with the CERN LHC experiment CMS's data structure and offline code and experience with machine learning applications.
