The Nuclear Theory Group at Ohio University anticipates hiring a post-doctoral research associate to take up a position starting in the Fall of 2019. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics (or anticipate having a Ph.D. in hand by September 2019). The research interests of the group cover a broad range of topics: nuclear and electromagnetic reactions in light systems, reactions involving nuclei near the neutron- and proton-driplines with particular emphasis on halo nuclei and direct reactions, and microphysics of core-collapse supernovae, young and old neutron stars, and binary mergers of compact stars. Â We attack these problems using a variety of forefront techniques including effective field theory, Faddeev techniques, Bayesian uncertainty quantification, and finite-temperature methods. We expect the successful candidate to contribute to these efforts. Thus applicants should have a strong research record and display significant initiative to complement their research skills. The appointment will initially be for one year. Renewal for a second year is highly probable, but is contingent on funding and job performance.

Interested candidates are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, and a statement of research interests which should include a complete list of publications to:

Only submissions via this method will be accepted.  When you submit your application you will be asked to provide the names of three people willing to write  a reference letter on your behalf. Those individuals will then be contacted by email and asked to upload a letter to our system.Â
