Graduate Student Position (MSc or PhD) in Experimental Nuclear Physics

University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada


The Experimental Subatomic Physics research group at the University of Manitoba invites applications for a graduate student position (MSc or PhD) in experimental nuclear physics. The successful applicant will conduct detector R&D for the future MOLLER Experiment at Jefferson Laboratory. MOLLER will use Parity-Violating Electron Scattering to search for physics beyond the Standard Model by measuring the electroweak mixing angle at low momentum transfer with unprecedented precision. The University of Manitoba has a leading role in the construction, characterization, and operation of cutting-edge particle detector technologies for MOLLER. The position will be based at the University of Manitoba.


  • BSc in Physics or BEng in Engineering Physics completed by the start date.
  • Applicants applying for a PhD position must have a MSc in particle or nuclear physics or a related field by the start date.
  • Experience programming and performing data analysis with Python (Pandas, Numpy, Scipy) and C++. 
  • Experience with GEANT4 simulations will be considered an asset.
  • Proficiency in English (written and oral).


To Apply:

Students interested should send a single pdf document to Dr. Savino Longo,, containing:

  • CV with list of publications. 
  • 250 word statement of research interests.
  • Contact information for two references.
  • Academic transcripts. 

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Note this is only an expression of interest. Selected candidates will be required to submit a formal application to the University of Manitoba graduate program.

The Subatomic Physics Group at the University of Manitoba is strongly committed to equity and diversity and especially welcomes applications from women, racialized persons, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of all sexual and gender identities, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
