Position Summary

The High Energy Theory group at Michigan State University welcomes applications for a research associate (postdoctoral) position in theoretical particle physics with emphasis on precision calculations in perturbative Quantum Field Theory. The appointment is for two years starting in the fall of 2018 or later.

The group consists of ten faculty members: Sekhar Chivukula, Steve Hsu, Huey-Wen Lin, Andreas v. Manteuffel, Jon Pumplin, Wayne Repko (Emeritus), Carl Schmidt, Dan Stump, and C.-P. Yuan, as well as eight postdoctoral fellows and several graduate students. Ongoing research encompasses perturbative precision calculations, lattice QCD, beyond-the-Standard-Model scenarios, collider phenomenology, formal aspects of Quantum Field Theory, cosmology, and beam physics. The group has close interactions with an active Michigan State HEP experimental group and has a strong participation in CTEQ - a national collaboration of theorists and experimentalists. The Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Department of Mathematics at MSU provide excellent opportunities for interactions between Mathematics and Physics through the joint Institute for Theoretical and Mathematical Physics.
