Postdoctoral positions: UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley Lab

To apply see Academic Jobs Online: #15048

The Nuclear Theory Group at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory anticipates having postdoctoral fellow positions available starting in the fall of 2020. Group interests include tests of fundamental symmetries using atoms and nuclei; neutrino physics and astrophysics; the modeling of supernovae and neutron star mergers as well as associated nucleosynthesis and observables; lattice QCD applied to nucleon and nuclear properties; the

The Group of Applied Nuclear Physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology is inviting applications for a researcher position at the level of a postdoctoral fellow or a research scientist. We are a multidisciplinary group performing technical research in support of international security. Problems under investigation include the detection of nuclear materials in the flow of commerce, nuclear detection in public spaces, and nuclear techniques for treaty monitoring and arms control verification. More information about the team and the research program can be found here.

DESY has an opening for a postdoc position in QCD within the recently established research unit "Next Generation Perturbative QCD for Hadron Structure".  We aim at filling the position between early 2020 and next fall.

Postdoc position in perturbative QCD and small-x physics

The Theoretical Physics Division of Particles and 
Fields at the Department of Physics of the University of Zagreb, Croatia, is offering one postdoc position, starting in fall 2020 for the duration of two years.

For this position we are searching for a candidate that will work in the area of small-x physics, perturbative QCD, TMDs, transverse spin, for high energy collisions. The position is funded by the Croatian Science Foundation startup grant SAT-PHENO.

The Medium Energy Physics group at the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in experimental nuclear physics. The successful candidate will join the group’s effort at Jefferson Lab (Newport News, VA) to perform experiments on short-range correlations, as well as, the EMC effect.

The appointment will be initially for one year, with possible renewal for an additional year upon mutual agreement and availability of funds.


The Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory has available one or more postdoctoral positions related to Electron-Ion Collider science. Further details can be found here:

The focus is on physics simulation, however other possibilities may be available. We welcome applications from outstanding candidates, with a deadline of 15 November, however the position(s) will remain open until filled.
