Postdoc Position in Theoretical Nuclear Physics at ODU

The Department of Physics at Old Dominion University invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position in theoretical nuclear physics beginning in Fall 2018. The successful applicant will work with one of the members of ODU Nuclear Theory Group (Profs. I. Balitsky, A. V. Radyushkin, R. Schiavilla, J. W. Van Orden), and their colleagues at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility on a program of studies in one of the following areas of theoretical nuclear physics: (i) study of perturbative and nonperturbative aspects of interactions described by quantum chromodynamics (QCD) at high energy; (ii) application of QCD to hard electroproduction processes, hadronic form factors and lattice calculations of parton distributions; (iii) microscopic studies of structure and dynamics of light nuclei with Quantum Monte Carlo and hyper spherical harmonics methods; (iv) application of relativistic models and wave equations to electron and neutrino scattering from the deuteron and oxygen.

The applicant must have a PhD or equivalent in theoretical nuclear or high-energy physics by the time of appointment and should have PhD experience in one of the areas of theoretical nuclear physics listed above.

Applicants should send a CV, list of publications, brief statement of research interests and arrange to have at least two letters of recommendation sent to

Applications will be reviewed starting June 25, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
