Nuclear Theory Postdoctoral Positions at Argonne National Laboratory

27 November 2017

The following announcement for two nuclear theory postdoc positions at Argonne is also posted at:

Position Description:

The Theory Group in the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory has a broad-ranging program in modern hadron and nuclear physics. The Group's research places strong emphasis on comparison with data from existing facilities, e.g. ATLAS at Argonne, FermiLab, JLab, NSCL, TRIUMF and RHIC; and on planning for and anticipating the output of future facilities; such as FRIB and an EIC. The Group also has access to extensive National and Laboratory computational resources. The Group is now seeking exceptional candidates for two postdoctoral positions that, contingent upon funding, would begin in Fall 2018. We expect that one position will be in computational nuclear structure and reactions, supported by our SciDAC-4 grant. The other position may be in any area of modern hadronic or nuclear physics.

Information on our group and its research activities can be found at our home page . We urge those interested in these positions to examine and consider seriously the information provided on these pages. The successful applicant will have research interests that complement ours.

Position Requirements:

The positions are for one year, with the probability of extension for an additional year, contingent upon funding and performance.
