The Medium Energy Group in the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory invites talented individuals to apply for a staff position in experimental medium-energy nuclear physics. We will consider all applicants with a background in experimental medium or high energy nuclear/particle physics. However, some preference will be given to those with a research program that overlaps with the existing and future facilities funded by the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Physics, such as the experimental programs at Jefferson Lab and Brookhaven National Laboratory.
We are seeking candidates with an excellent research record and great promise for future growth. We plan to appoint at the rank of Assistant Physicist (Argonne’s equivalent of a tenure-track Assistant Professor). We may also consider candidates at the level of Physicist (Argonne’s equivalent of a tenured Associate Professor). The appointment can start as early as January 2021.
The Medium Energy Group currently has seven staff members, two engineers, and several postdocs and students. Our team has a broad-ranging program in hadron and nuclear physics, leading electron scattering experiments in Jefferson Lab in Hall A, B, and C, including CLAS12 and SoLID. We have led SeaQuest and are also involved in SpinQuest at Fermilab, the MUSE experiment at PSI, the NEXT 0νββ experiment, and an in-house program to measure the Radium EDM. The Group also has a comprehensive program in detector technology, including pixelized MCP-PMTs, ultrafast silicon sensors, and superconducting nanowire detectors.
Furthermore, we are investing in the Electron-Ion Collider, leveraging resources from an Argonne Strategic LDRD and Program Development funds. Our current focus lies in physics simulations, including machine learning and artificial intelligence methods, leveraging the world-class high-performance computing facilities at Argonne. The Argonne EIC group is a close collaboration between members of the Medium-Energy, Theory, and Accelerator R&D groups, together with the High Energy Physics and Material Science Divisions.
