Postdoctoral Associate, Hadronics Physics Group
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 (LNS)-Hadronics Physics Group, to join an ongoing research program studying short-range correlations in nuclei using hard reactions. The research program is carried out mainly at the Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory (JLAB), with future activities planned for the MIcroBooNE experiment at Fermilab and new proton accelerators in Europe, Japan, and/or China.
The group has an active and diverse research program involving detector R&D; analysis of existing data from recent experiments; execution of approved experiments in the upgrade Halls A, B, and C of Jefferson Lab; and development of new experiments. Will be encouraged to lead different parts of the existing program, develop future experiments, and enjoy the opportunity to supervise and work with graduate students.
REQUIRED: a recent Ph.D. in nuclear or particle physics. Exceptional candidates with Ph.D.s in other areas and an interest in medium-energy nuclear physics are encouraged to apply.
The position may be located in the MIT area or in Newport News VA where Jefferson Lab is located. In either case, frequent travel will be required.
In addition to applying online via the MIT website, please submit a CV, cover letter, and three letters of recommendation to henMITPostdocSearch@gmail.com (or to Or Hen, MIT Bldg. 26-445, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02139.)
