Postdoc position at NC A&T State University
The Nuclear Physics Group at the North Carolina A&T State University is
accepting applications for a postdoctoral research associate position to
work on the third run and data analysis of the experiment to measure the
eta->gamma+gamma decay width (E12-10-011) in Hall D at JLab. The
concluding run of this experiment is currently scheduled for August 2022.
In addition, our group is playing a leading role in the PRad Collaboration
to perform a precision measurement of the proton charge radius to address
the “proton radius puzzle” in hadronic and atomic physics. Currently we
are preparing the second, much upgraded experiment (PRad-II) to improve
the total experimental uncertainty by a factor of four for this important
physical quantity. Our group is also playing a leading role in development
of a new experiment to search for hidden sector low mass particles, in
particular the hypothetical X17 particle, recently observed in two low
energy nuclear physics experiments.
The successful candidate will be located at Jefferson Laboratory and
expected to take leading roles in both data analysis, preparation of new
proposals through active Monte Carlo simulations, and preparation of new
experiments in Hall B at JLab. 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 June 1st, 2022 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:
