Post-Doctoral Research Associate - Physics University of Massachusetts Lowell
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 PhD graduates who want to take challenging roles in the existing programs, with a primary focus on characterizing, optimizing and utilizing new scintillators for nuclear science, but who will also be encouraged to pursue their own research interests.
The successful candidates will be integral members of the research group of Professors Partha Chowdhury, C.J. (Kim) Lister and Andrew Rogers. They will be expected to mentor graduate and undergraduate students, with possible teaching opportunities in the department for qualified candidates.
The appointment will be for two years contingent on continued external funding.
The University of Massachusetts Lowell is committed to increasing diversity in its faculty, staff, and student populations, as well as curriculum and support programs, while promoting an inclusive environment. We seek candidates who can contribute to that goal and encourage you to apply and to identify your strengths in this area.
Minimum Qualifications (Required):
A PhD in experimental nuclear physics or a closely related field is required. (Must have PhD by the time of appointment, estimated for August 2017)
The ability to work effectively with diverse groups
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.
Required Application Documents:
Names and contact information of three references
Other Application Documents
Review of applications will begin June 15, 2017, and continue until the position is filled. However, the position may close when an adequate number of qualified applications is received.
