Postdoctoral Associate, Laboratory for Nuclear Science
Working at MIT offers opportunities, an environment, a culture – and benefits – that just aren’t found together anywhere else. If you’re curious, motivated, want to be part of a unique community, and help shape the future – then take a look at this opportunity.
POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Laboratory for Nuclear Science, to work on the GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab. The main goal of GlueX is to understand the nature of confinement in QCD by mapping the spectrum of mesons in which the gluonic field binding the quarks is in an excited state. Will play a major role in R&D and construction of a focusing DIRC particle ID system for GlueX. The inclusion of such a system will greatly expand the physics potential of the experiment. Will also lead analysis of the data collected in the next few years.
REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in experimental physics. In addition to applying online here, please send a CV, publication list and three letters of recommendation to: Mr. Kenneth Hewitt, Laboratory for Nuclear Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Room 26-516, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139-4307.
