PDF position at Temple U.

The Physics Department at Temple University invites applications for a postdoctoral associate position in the field of experimental nuclear physics. The Temple University nuclear physics group is seeking outstanding candidates to be involved in its Jefferson Lab 12 GeV upgrade science program. Our group is leading a strong experimental program in Hall C that involves the currently ongoing A1n experiment, the upcoming d2n experiment, and the threshold J/psi production and VCS experiments which are currently in their data analysis phase. The group has a strong commitment to the SoLID program in Hall A, while other activities involve an R&D effort towards novel detector systems that will be used in a high luminosity and high acceptance environment, as well as research activities within the CLAS12 collaboration at JLab. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to assume a leading role within the A1n and d2n experiments, and to contribute to the groups efforts towards future opportunities with SoLID in Hall A at JLab and at an electron ion collider (EIC). A combination of strong skills in hardware and software is required for this position. A PhD in nuclear or particle physics is required. The candidates should send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Prof. Nikos Sparveris ( sparveri@temple.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The appointment is expected to start on March 1, 2020 and the candidate is expected to be located at Jefferson Lab. Temple University is an equal opportunity, equal access, affirmative action employer committed to achieving a diverse community (AA, EOE, m/f/d/v)
