Postdoctoral position in Experimental Nuclear Physics, Chalmers

16 May 2019

We are opening a Postdoctoral position in Experimental Nuclear Physics at the Department of Physics, Chalmers University of Technology.

The position calls for a dual focus on both the final stages of analysis of experiments with light nuclear systems, as well as developing and completing instrumentation and methods for the R3B experiment (Reactions with Relativistic Radioactive Beams) at FAIR.

The investigations on light nuclear systems will draw conclusions about weakly bound, correlated systems governed by the strong force. The successful candidate will also, within an international team of collaborators, make a significant contribution towards making instrumentation ready for future experiments.

Application deadline: 17 June, 2019
