Dear Colleagues,

This year, McGill University will host the 3rd annual JET Collaboration
Summer School on Jets in Heavy Ion Collisions
in Montreal. The dates are June 16 - 18 and confirmed lecturers and
topics include:

TRIUMF 2012 Summer Institute

We are pleased to announce the 2012 TRIUMF Summer Institute on Fundamental Symmetries and Fundamental Neutron Physics for students and early-career postdocs. The TRIUMF Summer Institute will take place August 6-17, 2012, at TRIUMF on the University of British Columbia campus in Vancouver.

The primary topics are Theory: The Standard Model and Beyond, Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics, Fundamental Physics with Muons, and Fundamental Neutron Physics.

FRIB receives DOE CD2 and CD3A

The Department of Energy has released the following statement:

“On August 1, 2013, the Department of Energy’s Office of Science approved Critical Decision-2 (CD-2), Approve Performance Baseline, and Critical Decision-3a (CD-3a), Approve Start of Civil Construction and Long Lead Procurements, for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) construction project, which will be located at Michigan State University.

TRIUMF involvement in next round of CFI proposals - 2013/07/15

Dear colleagues,
As many of you are aware CFI is gearing up for a competition, which will be announced in the Fall of 2013.
Several universities have already announced internal deadlines for letters of intent for this CFI competition.


The Medium Energy Physics Group at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL) and Duke University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position. The group has research interests which include studies of nucleon structure at the High Intensity Gamma Source (HIGS) facility at the Duke University Free Electron Laser Laboratory and at Jefferson Lab, e.g.

Postdoc position: University of Tennessee

Please see the attached announcement regarding a postdoc opportunity at the University of Tennessee. The position is available from October 1 2013. Applications will be reviewed starting August 15 until the position is filled. Please forward to any qualified potential candidates.

Thank you.

Research Scientist Position - University of Virginia

The Department of Physics at the University of Virginia invites applicants for a Research Scientist position to work on projects that are ultimately aimed at electron scattering experiments at JLab. Our group has a leading role in the JLab Super Bigbite program, which include measurements of the elastic nucleon form factors as well as studies single-spin asymmetries in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering. Our group is also involved in parity-violation experiments, including PREX-II, CREX, and the proposed MOLLER experiment.
