2 postdoc positions in the BNL Medium energy group

Position one:
The Medium Energy Group at BNL's Physics department has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The selected candidate is expected to analyze polarized pp and p(d)A data to constrain the nuclear parton distributions and especially study observables in di-hadron production sensitive to gluon saturation accessible at RHIC at forward rapidities. The selected candidate will in collaboration with the members of the BNL Medium Energy group and members of the STAR collaboration analyze STAR data. The work will include to participate in the calibration of the STAR detector systems essential of the analysis. The selected candidate is expected to present the results at STAR meetings, workshops and conferences after they have been made preliminary as well as publish the results.

Position two:
The Medium Energy Group at BNL's Physics department has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The selected candidate is expected to develop in collaboration with the RHIC Polarimeter group a concept how to measure the absolute polarization of high energy (30-166 GeV) polarized 3He++ beams, the lifetime of the polarization, and the bunch polarization profile in transverse and longitudinal direction with both high statistical precision and low systematic uncertainty at high collision frequencies. Furthermore, the requirements for the detectors and the overall polarimeter setup should be defined.

The selected candidate will develop a full simulation of the absolute and relative polarimeters needed to measure polarization of He-3 beams at high collision frequencies. The data of the existing data from the RHIC polarimeters will be used to verify the simulations. The selected candidate is expected to present the results at meetings, reviews and document and publish the results.
