Postdoctoral Position at University of Illinois

The Nuclear Physics Group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The successful candidate will work on the electromagnetic calorimeter construction and testing for the sPHENIX Experiment being planned at RHIC. In addition, the candidate will be able to work on other experiments on which the Nuclear Physics Group collaborates for physics analysis. This includes the ATLAS and COMPASS experiments at CERN. The successful candidate will have a recent Ph.D. in experimental high-energy nuclear physics.


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.

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.
