Postdoctoral Researcher in Low-Energy Experimental Nuclear Physics at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
15 September 2020
We have an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to play a major role in conducting nuclear physics experiments utilizing the surrogate reaction method, radioactive beams and charged-particle/gamma-ray spectroscopy to constrain neutron capture cross sections for nuclei far from stability. This research is vital to improving our understanding of the formation of the heavy elements via nucleosynthesis processes. The work will utilize radioactive beams at TRIUMF in the near term and FRIB in the longer term. The responsibilities include setting up and participating in experiments, performing data analysis, working with theorists to obtain neutron reaction rates, and interpreting and publishing the results.
Any questions about this position can be directed to Richard Hughes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The position will remain opened until filled.

Accelerator Engineer at the Edwards Accelerator Laboratory at Ohio University
03 September 2020
The Edwards Accelerator Laboratory (EAL) at Ohio University is seeking an Accelerator Engineer to support our low energy nuclear physics program. Primary responsibilities of this position will include maintaining the EAL's 4.5 million volt tandem pelletron and associated systems, including the data acquisition electronics and computers, as well as instructing students, faculty, and outside researchers in the safe operation of this equipment. The position will require 24 hour on-call availability for emergency problem diagnosis and repairs. Candidates must hold a degree in physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or related field with at least three years of relevant experience.
The local research program at the EAL consists of low energy nuclear physics experiments in the realms of nuclear astrophysics, applications, and structure, along with materials science questions that can be addressed using ion beam analysis. The EAL (https://inpp.ohio.edu/~oual/) is managed by the Ohio University Department of Physics and Astronomy and is a part of the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (https://inpp.ohio.edu/~inpp/).
Applicants are invited to submit a resume/curriculum vitae, cover letter, and a list of contact information for three references. The complete posting and application portal can be found here: https://www.ohiouniversityjobs.com/postings/35365. All questions should be directed to the EAL Director Zach Meisel (email@example.com).
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Applications received by September 30th will receive full consideration.
