Postdoctoral Position at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

16 October 2019

We have a postdoctoral position open in the Nuclear and Particle Physics Group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The successful candidate will play a major role in carrying out experiments that use trapped-ion samples to precisely study the beta decay of 8Li, 8B, and other light nuclei to test fundamental symmetries in nuclear beta decay and to better understand the structure of exotic nuclei. These experiments will be performed at radioactive beam facilities such as ANL and TRIUMF and the data analysis will involve the development of detailed simulations and an in-depth characterization of the apparatus.

This is a 2 year Postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of extension to a maximum of 3 years. Eligible candidates are recent PhDs within five years of the month of the degree award at time of hire date.

To apply for this position, or for additional information, please follow the link Any questions regarding the position can be directed to Aaron Gallant ( and Nicholas Scielzo (

Review of applications will begin November 8th, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.

Postdoctoral Research Position at the University of Tennessee

27 September 2019

The Experimental Nuclear Structure Group at the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the experimental low-energy nuclear physics program. The successful candidate will be involved in the research on beta-delayed neutron emission using VANDLE neutron detector array. The candidate will also be included in the construction and operation of new generation neutron detector with tracking capabilities. The experimental program will be carried out in US national laboratories and laboratories abroad.

The UTK group has a demonstrated excellent track record in experimental nuclear structure studies of nuclei far from stability and an active program in digital data acquisition systems. The candidate should have demonstrable experience with experiments at accelerator facilities, as well as excellent skills in programming and data analysis. The position is available immediately.
