An inclusive search for supersymmetric processes that produce
final states with jets and missing transverse momentum is
performed in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13
TeV. A dimensionless kinematic variable, aT, is used to
discriminate between events with genuine and
misreconstructed missing transverse momentum. A data
sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.3 fb-1,
recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC, is analysed. The
observed signal candidate event counts are found to be in
agreement with the expected contributions from standard
model processes and the result is interpreted in the mass
parameter space of supersymmetric simplified models.
