Job Postings

TRIUMF has an opening for a nuclear physics Research Scientist.  See the attached PDF for details.  Application deadline is March 31, 2020, but interested individuals are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Kentucky seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Scholar in the field of fundamental symmetries with neutrons. The group, consisting of three faculty members (Profs. C. Crawford, W. Korsch, and B. Plaster), 20 graduate students, and several undergraduate students, has physics interests in the search for the neutron electric dipole moment, neutron beta decay, and hadronic parity/time violation, with technical expertise in magnetics, optical methods, data acquisition, data analysis, and simulations.

Siemens Healthineers is a leading global medical technology company with over 170 years of experience and 18,000 patents. More than 48,000 dedicated colleagues in over 70 countries are driven to shape the future of healthcare.

The lattice QCD group at the George Washington University anticipates an opening for a Post-Doctoral Scientist position starting in Fall 2020, but an earlier or later starting date can be arranged. The appointment is for a one-year term and may be extended to a second year, based on mutual agreement. A renewal for a third year is possible, contingent upon the availability of funding. 

Attached is an ad for a new tenure track position in theoretical physics at UNBC.  The competition is really wide open and I would love to see applications from theoretical subatomic physics.Dr Elie Korkmaz

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.
