The University of California Davis Department of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to invite applications for the Brinson Prize Fellowship in Experimental Physics (with the University Rank of Postdoctoral Scholar) to begin in the Fall of 2021. The Brinson Prize Fellow is a two-year position with the possibility of an additional year.
The Brinson Fellow will join a search for a very low mass dark matter candidate: the dark photon. The experiment is called “Dark E-field Radio”, and the Brinson Fellow will participate in the design of novel RF instrumentation, search strategy for time-spectrum data from multiple detectors, and spearhead the next phase of the search beyond 1 GHz.
Creativity and expertise in RF systems, weak signal detection, and RF simulation tools are desired. Involvement in inventing and planning the next generation of laboratory searches for dark matter will be welcome. For background see http://arxiv.org/abs/2101.02805
This job will remain open until filled, with rolling reviews of applicants. The position is expected to begin in the Fall of 2021.
Details of the application process are at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/17006
Requested information includes 3 references who can independently write a letter of support for the applicant. Supplemental materials (Cover Letter; Curriculum Vitae; Research Statement; List of Publications) should be submitted as PDF files through Academic Jobs Online. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

About University of California, Davis - Physics & Astronomy
The University of California, Davis (UC Davis) Department of Physics & Astronomy provides a dynamic and diverse environment for the training of both graduate and undergraduates students.
Our three core research areas of condensed matter, high energy physics and cosmology, together with smaller programs in nuclear physics, high energy astrophysics, complexity sciences, and physics education, provide exciting opportunities for motivated students who are interested in cutting-edge research. Our undergraduates go on to top graduate schools and desirable positions in industry. Our graduate students go on to prestigious postdoctoral and faculty positions, become laboratory scientists, or move to excellent industry placements.
The vitality of our research programs stems in part from out rapid recent growth; 24 of our 46 faculty have been hired since year 2000. Indeed, our cosmology group, now one of the leading centers in the world for cosmology, has grown in the past seven years from just one member to ten.
