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.

Postdoc position in the in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy group at NSCL

NSCL's Gamma-ray Spectroscopy Group invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the experimental nuclear science program at the Coupled Cyclotron Facility with a focus on work with GRETINA, the novel US next-generation gamma-ray detector system designed to study the structure and properties of atomic nuclei. GRETINA is presently running its second fast-beam campaign at NSCL, coupled to the S800 Spectrograph for in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments with rare-isotope beams at velocities of v/c > 0.3.

Accelerator Physics Course at TRIUMF Jan-Apr 2017

TRIUMF is presenting a graduate course in Accelerator Physics through UBC and U. Vic to be held Jan-Apr 2017.
