This is the 2016-2017 HEP-Experiment faculty (tenure-track or permanent position) rumor mill.  No guarantees of accuracy here.  For more information on our posting policies, see The Fine Print.

A page for 2017-2018 jobs will go up in late July or early August.  Please submit job postings when you see them, and they will be included when the site goes up.  We currently know of 2017-2018 listings for Indiana, DESY, and Geneva.

For HEP-Experiment postdoc jobs, see the hep-ex postdoc rumor mill (recently under new management).

To submit rumors, or to help fill in missing information from past years, email hepexrumor [at] gmail [dot] com or fill in the form below.  The form is anonymous.  If you submit a rumor via the form and it's not posted within a few days, or if your rumor is removed, please email to find out why.  Your feedback on the structure and content of the site is also welcome, either through the form or by email.  

Please help to keep the list of jobs updated by submitting links to specific job postings.

Some random notes that don't fit neatly into the table are at the bottom of the page.

Field Key: 
  • Colliders (energy frontier)
  • Dark matter, direct detection (cosmic frontier)
  • Neutrino, lepton physics (intensity frontier)
  • Other

Combinations of letters indicate an ad that either specifies no subfield, or identifies several.  Combinations that contain underlined letters indicate some perceived preference (or rumor) for a particular subfield.  See more on this in The Fine Print.
