Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Particle/Nuclear Physics at Indiana University

The Physics Department at Indiana University Bloomington invites applications for a postdoctoral position with its Experimental Particle/Nuclear Physics group.

The research activities of the group focus on hadron spectroscopy with an emphasis on the search for and study of nonconventional mesons. The group plays a leading role in the study of nonconventional charmonium mesons at the BESIII experiment at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) in Beijing, China, and is one of the founding members of the GlueX experiment at Jefferson National Laboratory (JLab) in Newport News, USA. Both experiments are currently collecting new data. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to analyze data from both experiments and could also contribute to hardware efforts, such as the GlueX forward calorimeter.

A Ph.D. in experimental high-energy or nuclear physics is required. The starting date is negotiable; however, it is expected that the appointment will start on or before September 1, 2018.

Applications, including a CV, a statement of research interests, and three letters of reference, should be submitted through the application portal located at:
