Postdoc position in NC A&T Nuclear Physics group

The Experimental Nuclear Physics Group at the North Carolina A&T State
University is accepting applications for a postdoctoral research associate
position to work on our group’s experiments at Jefferson Laboratory
(JLab). Currently, our group is playing a leading role in the PRad
Collaboration at JLab to perform the second, much upgraded experiment
(PRad-II, E12-20-004) to improve the total experimental uncertainty by a
factor of four for the proton radius to address the “proton radius puzzle”
in hadronic and atomic physics. Our group also playing a leading role in
the development of a new experiment to search for hidden sector low mass
particles, in particular the hypothetical X17 particle, recently observed
in several low energy nuclear physics experiments. This experiment was
recently approved by PAC50 in July 2022, also with a high scientific
rating (E12-21-003). Our group is playing a leading role in all stages of
the preparation, installation and execution of these experiments. In
addition, the successful candidate will actively participate in the data
analysis process of the experiment to measure the
eta decay width recently performed in Hall D at JLab
The successful candidate will be located at Jefferson Laboratory and
expected to take leading roles in: (a) data analysis; (b) preparation and
execution of new experiments (PRad-II and X17-Search) in Hall B at JLab;
(c) preparation of new experimental proposals. Applicants must have a
recent Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or high energy particle physics and
experience working with hardware and software for accelerator based
experiments, as well as an extensive knowledge of data analysis
techniques. Review of applications will start from now and will continue
to accept applications until the position is filled.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of
research interests and experience, and arrange to have three letters of
recommendations emailed to:
