UNH Post Doc Position Opening

The Polarized Target Group (Profs. Long and Slifer) at the University of New Hampshire invites applications for an experimental postdoctoral Research Associate. Our group's activities focus on the Spin Physics program at Jefferson Lab and other accelerators. We operate a Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Lab with full capabilities to produce and polarize the solid targets needed for this program. In the near term our group will focus on the Jefferson Lab Azz and b1 experiments, which will probe tensor polarized deuterons to better understand short range correlations and probe exotic six-quark quantum chromodynamic states in spin-1 systems, and the Fermilab polarized Drell Yan Experiment. The successful candidate will take a leading role in this effort, but will also be encouraged to propose and initiate new experiments.

The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled. This is a one year appointment, which will be renewed for additional years contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance. Candidates are required to have a PhD in experimental nuclear or particle physics by the appointment start date. Experience in spin physics and/or polarized targets would be an asset, as would experience with solid ammonia and cryogenic, vacuum, millimeter wave, and 3D printing equipment.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vita and research plan at https://jobs.usnh.edu/postings/32627 and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to Prof. Elena Long (elena.long@unh.edu). Inquiries may be sent to the same address. The UNH NPG's efforts are supported by the US Department of Energy under grant DE-FG02-88ER4041.
