Postdoc position in Experimental Nuclear and Detector Physics

The Physics Department of the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position in the experimental nuclear physics group. This position presents opportunity to work in national Labs on two projects, the currently running GlueX Experiment in Hall D at Jefferson Lab and the future Electron Ion Collider Detector.

The successful applicant is expected to play an important role in the R&D program of the PID system for the future Electron Ion Collider detector. It focuses on innovative instrumentation technology to push DIRC detector technology beyond the state of the arc by developing the High-performance DIRC detector. The position will provide the opportunity to work both on simulations and a wide range of instrumentation activities.

The second part of the position will allow to make significant contributions to data analysis with the GlueX hadronic physics program, which is currently ongoing.

Both projects will provide the opportunity to be co-author of several publications.

The position is to be based on Jefferson Lab.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Experience with detector instrumentation and physics analysis is desirable. Candidates must submit a resume, a list of publications with significant contributions, a statement of research interests. In addition, you should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Inquiries can be sent to Dr. Greg Kalicy at
