CLASSE and CBB 2024 REU Summer Student
The REU program is open, by NSF regulation, only to US citizens and permanent residents. If accepted, you will be required to show proof of citizenship or permanent residency. This program is intended primarily for sophomore and junior students in science and engineering. In exceptional cases first year students could have enough familiarity with physics, engineering, or computer science to profit from their research experience. Students who have not yet enrolled as undergraduates and students who will have a Bachelors degree by the summer of 2024 are not eligible according to NSF regulations. If accepted, you will have to show proof of health insurance coverage for the period of the REU Program.
Functional Materials and Mechanics Postdoctoral Associate
The Materials Solutions Network at CHESS (MSN-C) seeks a postdoctoral researcher in the field of polymer composites, materials science or mechanical engineering to join our scientific team. The position is associated with the Functional Materials Beamline (FMB) at MSN-C, one of several beamlines built in 2019. FMB is one of two beamlines comprising MSN-C, an Air Force Research Laboratory-sponsored facility to support critical research and manufacturing needs within DoD and industry.
Functional Materials Beamline Staff Scientist at CHESS
The Materials Solutions Network at CHESS (MSN-C) seeks a Ph.D. scientist in the field of polymer composites, materials science or mechanical engineering to join our mission-driven team. The position is associated with the Functional Materials Beamline (FMB) at MSN-C, one of several beamlines built in 2019. FMB is one of two beamlines comprising MSN-C, an Air Force Research Laboratory-sponsored facility to support critical research and manufacturing needs within DoD and industry. A central goal of FMB is to support advances in the processing and performance of next-generation materials, ranging from structural polymer composites to functional thin films. In collaboration with MSN-C and AFRL scientific and technical staff, the successful candidate will support this goal by leveraging the x-ray characterization capabilities of FMB, including microbeam SAXS/WAXS mapping, GISAXS/WAXS, real-space imaging, and advanced computational and analysis methods.

Klarman Fellowship in High-Energy Theory 2024 - CLASSE
The Cornell High Energy Theory Group invites exceptional applicants who seek to be nominated for The Klarman Fellowship, which is a distinguished postdoctoral program in the College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell. Selection of Fellows is a two-stage process. In the first stage, applications will be considered by the members of the theory group (Csaba Csaki, Yuval Grossman, Tom Hartman, Liam McAllister, and Maxim Perelstein). Leading candidates will then be nominated for consideration by a college-wide selection committee.
MacCHESS Staff Scientist - CHESS
CHESS is seeking a Ph.D. level scientist to work with a dynamic, interdisciplinary team in structural biology at the (Biological Small Angle X-ray Solution Scattering (BioSAXS) station at CHESS. This includes both support of users performing routine BioSAXS experiments and the development of novel techniques in X-ray scattering as applied to structural biology. User support includes continuing developments to maintain a state-of-the-art facility. Novel techniques are developed in collaboration with scientists who need capabilities beyond the current standard methods.
Postdoctoral Associate Experimental Particle Physics and Physics Education Research at Cornell University
The Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE) at Cornell University has an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate to work on the CMS experiment at the LHC and the Cornell PER Laboratory. The successful candidate will conduct both experimental particle physics work with the CMS group and physics education research (PER) with the Cornell PER lab. The Cornell CMS group has a broad involvement in many aspects of the CMS experiment, from data analysis to detector operations and HL-LHC detector upgrades. The successful candidate is expected to engage actively in analysis of CMS data and will have considerable freedom in developing this program.
Research Support Specialist I - RSSI – CHESS Operator - CHESS
The Research Support Specialist I (RSSI) position contributes to the research mission of the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) by assisting with the development and maintenance of experimental facilities and equipment, and determining how to best achieve the necessary research objectives. This position shares responsibility for designing, developing, assembling, and commissioning specialized equipment; tracking and analyzing research data and instrument performance; writing and/or modifying computer programs and scripts; troubleshooting, repairing, and maintaining specialized laboratory equipment; and providing technical support to researchers in the facility.
Research Support Specialist III - RSSIII – Electrical Engineer - CLASSE
Design complex, specialized electronic equipment for the operation of a large-scale accelerator complex comprised of: Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR), Synchrotron, Linac, and CBETA. Included in new designs are analog and digital control circuits as well as sophisticated programmable logic devices (fpga’s) requiring specialized software tool experience.
