Positions available

PhD and Postdoctoral positions available to join my ERC project OPEN3GEN on expanding the search for Long Lived Particles at ATLAS.

Current research interests

I work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider.  My interests are in Higgs physics; Exotic physics; the ITk construction and the ATLAS trigger. My main focus for the next five years is on my ERC grant to extend ATLAS searches for Long Lived Particles.  I have several PhD and postdoc positions available to join this team, please contact me for further information.
