Research Associate in Experimental Nuclear Physics at NSCL/MSU – Charge-exchange reactions

23 May 2018

The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) invites applications from outstanding candidates for a fixed-term research associate (Postdoctoral Researcher) position in the area of experimental nuclear science, who will work in the NSCL Charge-Exchange group. The group focuses on the study of isovector excitations in nuclei, with applications in astrophysics and neutrino physics. Amongst others, the Charge-Exchange group develops techniques to study isovector excitations in unstable nuclei and the successful candidate is expected to take a leading role in the development and testing of the capability to perform (d,2He) charge-exchange experiments in inverse kinematics with the NSCL Active-Target Time-Projection Chamber (AT-TPC) placed at the S800 Spectrograph. This development is, for example, important for studying weak reaction rates on neutron-rich nuclei that are important in various astrophysical phenomena.

Open positions in Theoretical Physics - Pisa, Italy

21 May 2018

The University of Pisa (Italy) has issued a call for one researcher position and one associate professor position in Theoretical Physics within the Department of Physics "E. Fermi".

Both positions are open to any researcher in the field of theoretical nuclear physics, high-energy physics, including lattice QCD and string theory, mathematical physics, and statistical physics. The deadline for application is June 4, 2018. We ask you to spread this information among your colleagues and potential strong candidates, especially those working in theoretical nuclear physics.

The researcher (type "ricercatore universitario di tipo a - junior" - RTDa) will have a full time contract for the duration of three years with mainly research duties and some teaching duties (essentially one course per year, about 60 hours of teaching). Essentially, this RTDa position is equivalent to senior Post-Doc position, by international standards.

The Associate Professor position is reserved for applicants that in the past three years have had no contracts with the University of Pisa, who have an equivalent position in other Italian or foreign universities, or have the so-called "Abilitazione Nazionale".

All the information can be found at the following links:

Research Associate (Postdoctoral Researcher) position in experimental nuclear science at NSCL

21 May 2018

The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) invites applications from outstanding candidates for a fixed-term research associate (Postdoctoral Researcher) position in the area of experimental nuclear science, who will work in the research group of Prof. Hiro Iwasaki . The successful candidate will work primarily on the lifetime measurement and spectroscopy program with fast and reaccelerated rare-isotope beams at NSCL. The physics focus of the group is the experimental investigation of nuclear shell and shape evolution far from stability and electromagnetic responses of weakly-bound nuclei. Experiments will be performed utilizing large gamma-ray arrays such as GRETINA and SeGA in combination with ancillary detectors, the TRIPLEX plunger device and S800 spectrograph. Experience in experimental nuclear research including analysis of nuclear structure or reaction data and related simulation works is desirable.

Interested candidates should provide a cover letter stating their research interests, a Curriculum Vita including a complete list of publications and presentations and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
