2018-2019

This is the 2018-2019 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.

For HEP-Experiment postdoc jobs, see the hep-ex postdoc rumor mill.

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.
