Open Projects

For PostDocs
We invite applications for postdoctorate fellows to perform research within the projects pursued by our group. The work will be performed in intense collaboration with experienced staff members and doctorate students. The projects are detailed in the following:
  • Play a central role in the analysis of the Higgs -> ττ decay mode, where the τ leptons decay leptonically into either e-ν-ν or μ-ν-ν final states. This analysis is sensitive both to Higgs production as expected in the SM and within the MSSM.
  • Explore the CMS/LHC potential to determine Higgs quantum numbers at 13 TeV centre-of-mass energy in the ττ decay mode, where at least one tau lepton decays hadronically. Start up the analysis when the first new data become available.
  • Play a central role in the MSSM H->bb analysis. This analysis investigates final states with at least three identified b-jets, and is sensitive to the MSSM parameters mA and tan β.
For Ph.D. Students
We invite applications for PhD students to perform research within the projects pursued by our group. The work will be performed in intense collaboration with experienced staff members and PostDocs. The projects are detailed in the following:
  • Participate in the Run II 13 TeV Higgs -> ττ analysis. Determine mass and couplings of the Higgs boson discovered at 125 GeV in the H->tautau decay channel with the focus on final states with one electron and one muon. Contribute to the development and validation of the tau identification algorithms. used for identification of hadronic tau decays.
  • Participate in the Run II 13 TeV Higgs -> ττ analysis, focusing on final states with both taus decaying semi-hadronically. Determine the Higgs CP quantum numbers in this final state. The physics analysis will be accompanied by work on the development and validation of the algorithms used for identification of semi-hadronic tau decays.
  • Participate in the MSSM H->bb analysis with the 13 TeV data. This analysis searches for additional heavy Higgs bosons beyond the Standard Model, as predicted by Supersymmetry. Investigates final states with at least three identified b-jets, and is sensitive to the MSSM parameters mA and tan β.This analysis requires detailed study of b-tagging performance both at trigger and offline level.
