Postdoctoral Research Associate Position at University of Massachusetts Lowell
Postdoctoral Research Associate - Physics and Applied Physics
The Nuclear Physics group at the University of Massachusetts Lowell has an immediate Post-Doctoral opening to help exploit new opportunities in experimental research both at major national user facilities and at our Radiation Laboratory. The current research in the group is in fundamental nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics, and in detector R&D and applied nuclear science using emerging scintillators and segmented Ge detectors. The Radiation Laboratory on campus has a 1-MW research reactor and a 5.5-MV CN Van de Graaff accelerator. The university is situated in the historic city of Lowell, on the Merrimack river, a half-hour northwest of Boston.
We are looking for recent Ph.D. graduates who want to take challenging roles in our existing programs, but who will also be encouraged to pursue their own research interests. The successful candidates will be integral members of the group, the faculty of which include Professors Partha Chowdhury, Andrew Rogers and Peter Bender. They will be expected to help mentor graduate and undergraduate students.
The appointments will be for two years contingent on continued external funding.
Minimum Qualifications (Required): • Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics or a closely related field is required. Additional Considerations: • Experience with state-of-the- art nuclear detectors and techniques, as well as multi-parameter digital data acquisition and analysis of accelerator-based experiments, is desirable.
The application process is fully online (Job No. 507513 at https://careers.pageuppeople.com/822/lowell/en-us/job/507513/postdoctoral-research-associate-physics-and-applied-physics) Please include a cover letter and CV with names and contact information of three references. For more information about the opportunities, contact Professor Andrew Rogers (Andrew_Rogers@uml.edu).
