    Post-Doctoral Position

    Post-Doctoral Position in Experimental High-Energy Physics, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

    The High-Energy Physics Group at Colorado State University (CSU) invites applications for a post-doctoral research position. Opportunities are for work on the BaBar experiment at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center and the Pierre Auger Cosmic ray observatory currently under construction in Argentina. The CSU group has worked on the BaBar drift chamber and the DIRC, and is presently involved in tau physics and analysis of charmonium final states. They are also involved in the design and construction of the Auger observatory ground array detectors. The group is building an analysis-computing farm (Sun and Linux platforms) at CSU. The successful candidate may spend time at both CSU and at SLAC or at the Auger site depending on qualifications and interest.

    Applicants with a PhD in experimental particle physics or particle-astrophysics should send their CV and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to: Prof. John Harton, Department of Physics, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523 USA. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but should be received by 15 July 2001 to receive full consideration. CSU is an EEO/AA employer.
