National Nuclear Physics Summer School 2017

The 2017 National Nuclear Physics Summer School (NNPSS) will be held from July  9-22, 2017, at the University of Colorado in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. The summer school is open to graduate students and postdocs within a few years of their PhD (on either side). Lecturers will provide pedagogical reviews and discuss future prospects covering the full range of topics in experimental and theoretical nuclear physics. Additional seminars on special topics and applications will also be given.

JLAB HALL A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

The Hall A postdoctoral fellow is expected to take a leadership role in the upcoming Hall A experiments which include: measurements of deeply virtual Compton scattering, nucleon form factors, a series of high impact measurements on 3H and 3He, and parity violation measurements. The postdoctoral fellow will also work alongside the staff scientists on the Hall A High Resolution Spectrometers as well as helping with preparing the Super BigBite spectrometer.

EIC position at Saclay

The CEA Paris-Saclay Nucleon Structure Laboratory (LSN) is opening a staff scientist position for an outstanding physicist in the field of experimental hadron physics, with a focus on both the development of the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) project and the experiments using the recent 12GeV upgrade of the Jefferson Lab (US) electron accelerator.

Please see the attachment for more information.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow-UCN

The Canadian Ultracold Neutron (UCN) group is currently accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The UCN collaboration has constructed and is commissioning a new primary proton beam line at TRIUMF. The spallation target and neutron moderators were installed and first cold neutrons were produced in 2016. This year, the UCN source will be installed and first UCN shall be produced. The group is also engaged in the design and development of the first UCN experiment using this sourcea measurement of the neutron's electric dipole moment (EDM).

Postdoctoral research associate position at William & Mary

The Physics Department at the College of William and Mary invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate in the experimental hadronic physics group to work on the GlueX experiment in Hall D at nearby Jefferson Lab. The successful applicant is expected to take a leadership role in the construction and commissioning of a new DIRC particle identification detector, which will provide kaon identification to search for exotic mesons containing strange quarks.

Postdoctoral research position at Rochester

The Neutrino group at the University of Rochester invites applications for a position as Postdoctoral Research Associate. Our group currently collaborates on the MINERvA, T2K and DUNE experiments. The successful applicant will lead a data analysis from the MINERvA or T2K experiments, and will make a strong and identifiable contribution to the design, prototyping and commissioning of detectors for the DUNE experiment.

University of Edinburgh PDF

The University of Edinburgh nuclear physics group is looking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher in medical physics. The project relates to positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and will involve close collabration with an industrial partner. The post will support the development of a prototype commercial product for PET imaging based on cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) detector technologies.

Experimental Nuclear Physics Tenured or Tenure-Track Faculty Position

The University of Washington Department of Physics, in conjunction with its Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics (CENPA), seeks an outstanding individual for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position in experimental nuclear physics. Of particular interest are creative candidates specializing in Fundamental Symmetries or Neutrino Physics, who wish to initiate their own research programs at CENPA, or who already have a leadership role in one of the existing Nuclear Physics Long Range Plan priority programs.

Postdoc position in Bonn

Please find attached an advertisement for a Postdoc position for COMPASS in my group at Bonn. I invite all interested and qualified persons to apply, or to contact me in case of questions.
