This position will support prototyping, construction, testing, and operation of silicon sensor detectors for particle physics experiments. The group will build a portion of the tracker forward pixel sub-detector for the CMS experiment. The group is also leading the construction of a precision timing detector for the same experiment. The primary responsibilities are a) lead technical aspects of the construction of detectors for particle physics, including the development of the assembly and testing procedures and b) provide technical oversight and support for a team of about a dozen students and technicians. The position will work closely with a team of physicists and engineers. The position requires excellent communication skills, including frequent written and oral reports, and may require frequent travel. The work may also include firmware and software development, electronics design, and roles in leadership positions within the experimental collaboration.
