Postdoctoral Scholar in low-energy nuclear structure group at the University of Kentucky Accelerator Laboratory

15 February 2024

The Chemistry Department in the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to work with the low-energy nuclear structure group at the UK Accelerator Laboratory (UKAL). Most of the research will be performed at the university's 7 MV Van de Graaff accelerator facility, however, project travel to larger facilities such as TRIUMF and HIyS to perform complementary experiments is also anticipated.

Related topics in nuclear spectroscopy, neutron-induced reactions, and neutron scattering are the focus of the research program. This includes selected studies in forefront areas such as: nuclear structure relevant to double-beta decay, shape transition of nuclei, collective excitations and shape coexistence, as well as precise & accurate neutron scattering cross sections for the development of advanced nuclear reactors, homeland security, and other applications.
