Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical Nuclear Physics at University of Campania "Vanvitelli" in Caserta, Italy
A post-doctoral position in theoretical nuclear physics is available at the Department of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Campania “Vanvitelli” in Caserta. The appointed candidate is expected to work with the Naples-Caserta Nuclear Theory Group, whose research activities are focused on nuclear structure. In particular, the main topic is the study of the spectroscopic properties of exotic nuclei near shell closure and chains of nuclei toward the drip lines, within the framework of the nuclear shell model. This work is done mostly in close collaboration with experimentalists. Calculations are performed employing microscopic effective Hamiltonians, which are derived from realistic nuclear potentials by way of the many-body perturbation theory. In this connection, a relevant part of the research activity is aimed to improve and extend the range of application of realistic effective shell-model Hamiltonians. Significant efforts are at present devoted to take into account three-nucleon forces in the derivation of the effective Hamiltonian and to calculate the nuclear matrix elements governing the neutrinoless double-beta decay. The research group is also involved in the study of infinite nuclear matter.
The position is for two-years period, and its starting date will be in December 2018. The annual gross salary is 20,355 euros, and travel tickets to and from Caserta will be reimbursed at the beginning and at the end of the fellowship.
Participants residing outside the Campania Region may also apply for the disbursement of a one-off contribution.
Applications must be sent not later than October 29, 2018 The announcement can be found at the following address: https://www.unicampania.it/index.php/ricerca/assegni-di-ricerca/bandi/6203-bando-per-il-conferimento-di-n-25-assegni-di-ricerca
