TMD post-doc position in BNL Nuclear Theory Group

The Nuclear Theory Group at Brookhaven National Laboratory plans to hire a postdoctoral Research Associate to work in Theoretical Nuclear Physics, starting on or about October 1, 2019. The hire is supported in part by theTMD Theory Topical Collaboration to perform research into the three-dimensional transverse momentum dependent (TMD) tomography of parton distributions in hadrons at high energies.

The scientific activities of the group include research on perturbative QCD and spin physics, lattice QCD studies of hadron structure and at high temperatures and baryon densities, QCD at high energies (small x), development of many-body QCD methods in extreme environments, heavy ion phenomenology in support of the experimental program at RHIC and the LHC, and research in support of future facilities in Nuclear Physics. A particular focus will be research related to the science case for an Electron-Ion Collider.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in theoretical nuclear or particle physics,awarded within the past five years. Applications received by November 15th, 2018 will receive full consideration.
