Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in Experimental Nuclear Astrophysics at University of Edinburgh

13 June 2022

A 2 year Postdoctoral Research Associate in Experimental Nuclear Astrophysics (with possibilities of extensions) is available at the University of Edinburgh:

The position will support and develop the experimental program on nuclear astrophysical reactions of the ELDAR ERC-StG mainly by (i) using new CARME chamber and silicon strip detector system for the CRYRING at GSI laboratory, Germany, and (ii) constructing and exploiting a new charged particle detection system at the LUNA facility, Gran Sasso laboratory, Italy. You will be will encouraged to become involved in all elements of the ELDAR research project. The deadline to apply is 11 July.

Two Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions at TRIUMF

31 May 2022

Weak Interaction Tests with atom traps: Postdoctoral research associates

Neutral atom traps for radioactives at TRIUMF have two openings for postdoctoral research associates.

The trap for beta decay tests time-reversal symmetry and maximal lepton chirality-- approved proposals and plans are at For more info, please contact John Behr, .

The francium trapping project pursues spectroscopy of the highly forbidden 7s-8s transition, and with the recent observation fo the M1 amplitude is now moving towards an atomic parity violation measurement, looking to test particle physics knowledge of the weak neutral current. More info is available from Gerald Gwinner, .

Postdoctoral Position in the Experimental Low-Energy Nuclear Physics Research (LER) Group at Argonne National Laboratory

31 May 2022

The Low-Energy Nuclear Physics Research Group (LER) of the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory seeks outstanding individuals to fill an open postdoctoral position within the experimental Group. LER performs world-leading research in nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental symmetries, and nuclear data. The Group also manages and operates world-class detector systems as part of the ATLAS accelerator facility, a DOE supported national user facility for low-energy nuclear physics research. ATLAS provides world-unique rare isotope beams from either the CARIBU (Californium Rare Ion Breeder Upgrade) source or the ATLAS In-Flight Facility. In addition, members of the group are leading experimental programs at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB).

Candidates considered for the position must have:
• Recently received or near completion of their Ph.D. in nuclear physics or related discipline within the last 3 years.
• Experience at conceiving and executing experimental research projects, data analysis, physics interpretations, and reporting of the results.
• A strong background in the field of Experimental Nuclear Physics.

In addition, a preference will be given to candidates with experience in studies of exotic nuclei using recoil separators coupled to gamma-ray detector arrays.

Information on the activities of the Group and the Division can be found at The Argonne Physics Division has programs in low energy and medium energy nuclear physics, nuclear theory, nuclear data, accelerator R&D and operates the DOE Office of Nuclear Physics National User Facility, the Argonne Tandem-Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS).

The appointment will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension for up to 3 years depending on funding and performance. The expected starting date is Q4 of 2022. Interested applicants should apply at and specify requisition #413473. In addition, please forward your CV and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to Dr. Michael P. Carpenter ( Review of applicants will begin July 15, 2022, and the position will remain open until filled.
