Postdoctoral Research Associate Position Experimental Nuclear Physics Group North Carolina A&T State University
he Nuclear Physics Group at the North Carolina A&T State University is accepting
applications for a postdoctoral research associate position to work on the analysis of the
PRad experiment (E12-11-106) and preparation, run and data analysis of a new
experiment to measure the Î·â†’Î³Î³ decay width (E12-10-011). The position is available
from August 1, 2018, The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of
extension for up to two additional years, subject to funding considerations and mutual
agreement. For the past several years, the PRad Collaboration has developed and
constructed a new experimental setup based on a novel windowless hydrogen gas flow
target and multichannel electromagnetic calorimeter (HyCal) to measure the proton
charge reduce with a high accuracy to address the current â€œproton charge radius puzzleâ€
in hadronic and atomic physics. This experiment successfully performed in 2016 in Hall
B at JLab with a collection of high statistics and rich experimental data set. The second
experiment, the Î·â†’Î³Î³ decay width, is in its final stages of construction and preparation
for a short test run in this fall and expected to perform the first part of the experiment in
the spring of 2019 in Hall D at JLab.
The successful candidate will be located at Jefferson Lab and expected to take a leading
roles in both experiments. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or high
energy physics and experience working with hardware and software for accelerator based
experiments, as well as, an extensive knowledge of data analysis techniques. Review of
applications will start August 1, 2018 and will continue to accept applications until the
position is filled.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests
and experience and arrange to have three letters of recommendations sent (and emailed)
