The Experimental High-energy Nuclear Physics group of Nevis Laboratories of Columbia University invites applications for an Associate Research Scientist. We are seeking a skilled and motivated research scientist to lead the groups efforts in studying collective phenomena in proton-proton and heavy-ion collisions at the LHC using data collected by the ATLAS experiment and to lead the development of trigger menus for future heavy-ion data-taking by the ATLAS experiment. The successful candidate will have several years experience measuring anisotropic flow using multiple techniques in proton-proton, proton-nucleus, and nucleus-nucleus collisions, will have experience with measurements of muons and jets, and will be prepared to propose a future program for measurements by the group. That candidate will also have extensive experience developing code for and using the ATLAS ATHENA analysis environment and the ATLAS trigger system and will have a thorough understanding of the functioning and configuration of the ATLAS trigger.
