High Energy Physics Postdoctoral Position
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in experimental high energy physics. The position entails the research on the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The JHU group on CMS has contributed to construction, software, calibration, and alignment of the silicon tracking detector. The group has played a significant role in discovery and measurement of spin-parity of a Higgs boson, and engaged in searches for new phenomena and tests of electroweak theory.
The successful candidate is expected to have experience with modern analysis software and detector operation. A Ph.D. in particle physics is required.
Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, summary of research interests, and three letters of recommendation, submitted to AcademicJobsOnline, at www.academicjobsonline.org.
Inquires may be sent to Prof. Gritsan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of applications will start on July 29, 2013 and will continue until position is filled. Johns Hopkins is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
Postdoctoral Position(s) in Time-Domain THz Instrumentation Development
Applications are solicited for one or more postdoctoral fellows to conduct research in the area of time-domain THz spectroscopy in the group of N. Peter Armitage at the Johns Hopkins University Department of Physics and Astronomy. Principal scientific interests of the group are novesuperconductivity, quantum magnetism, and topological insulators. Applicants should have a PhD in condensed matter physics, electrical engineering, material science, or related fields. Experience in optical or related spectroscopies and/or correlated electron systems, is preferable but by no means mandatory.
Applicants should submit a CV, publication list, a very brief statement of research interests, and the names of two references as PDF attachments to email@example.com.
Postdoctoral Research in Hard X-ray Astrophysics (NuSTAR)
The Center for Astrophysical Center (CAS) of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher position for the observation and study of hard X-ray emission from obscured AGN, starburst, and normal galaxies using NuSTAR, Chandra, and other facilities. The successful candidate would work collaboratively between JHU/CAS and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and would need to qualify for security access to NASA GSFC.
The candidate would work closely with the NuSTAR science team at GSFC. Team members include Andrew Ptak (GSFC and JHU Visiting Scientist), Ann Hornschemeier (GSFC and JHU Adjunct Assistant Professor), and Will Zhang (GSFC). The team has responsibility for analyzing NuSTAR, Chandra, and other datasets in support of scientific publications.
The applicant is expected to hold a PhD and previous research experience is highly valued.
Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, summary of research interests and three letters of recommendation. Full applications should be submitted electronically at academicjobsonline.org. Applications received by September 15, 2012, will be given full consideration, though submissions after that date are also welcome while the search is still ongoing.

Particle/Cosmology Theory Postdoctoral Position
The Particle/Cosmology Theory Group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in theoretical high energy physics, beginning September 2013. The group consists of Jonathan Bagger, Marc Kamionkowski, David Kaplan, Jared Kaplan, and Kiril Melnikov, as well as postdocs and students. A PhD in theoretical physics is required.
Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, summary of research interests, and three letters of recommendation, submitted to academicjobsonline.org.
Postdoctoral Research Position – Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS)
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position for research on the Cosmology Large Angular Scale Surveyor (CLASS). CLASS is a project to determine the energy scale of inflation by way of cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization measurements on the largest angular scales. The position offers opportunities to develop CMB Instrumentation, deploy CLASS to the Atacama Desert in Chile, and analyze the resulting data. Research will be carried out with Prof. Charles Bennett, Prof. Tobias Marriage, and CLASS collaborators at the Johns Hopkins University Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Complete applications including a CV, list of publications, research statement and three letters of recommendation, received by December 31, 2012, will receive full consideration.
Application materials should be emailed as a PDF attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
