Postdoctoral research position in the Nuclear and Particle Physics Group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
The Nuclear and Chemical Sciences Division within the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate at LLNL has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher in the Nuclear and Particle Physics (NPP) Group. The successful candidate will play a major role in developing a comprehensive experimental program of fission studies using inverse and direct kinematics reactions. This project will establish a research effort to deliver and validate high-precision isotopic identifications of primary fission fragments from unstable isotopes for which there are limited experimental or evaluation data. In addition, the project aims to verify the usefulness of the inverse kinematic measurements with those measured in direct kinematics using real photon or neutron beams. This unique fission data will provide important benchmarks for a variety of basic science topics spanning the fission process and nucleosynthesis. This is a two-year Postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of extension to three years.

PhD student in Experimental Nuclear Physics at Stockholm University (Sweden)
Postdoctoral Researcher position at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL)
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 and in the near future FRIB. The focus of the group is the experimental investigation of nuclear shell and shape evolution far from stability and study of electromagnetic responses of weakly-bound nuclei. Experiments will be performed utilizing large gamma-ray arrays such as GRETINA and SeGA in combination with TRIPLEX plunger, ancillary detectors and 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 in and experience/expertise related to this position, 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.
