This is the 2019-2020 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.

To submit rumors or corrections, 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. 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.

New posts (as of June 25, 2020) will be going to the 2020-2021 page. Happy academic new year? The home page will remain here until ~August, when we'll shift to the 2020-2021 page by default.
