Postdoctoral Associate Position in Low-Energy Nuclear Experimental Physics

at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey

We have an immediate availability for a postdoctoral associate in low-energy nuclear experimental science at Rutgers University. Professor Jolie Cizewski is leading efforts to use radioactive ion beams at U.S. accelerator facilities to measure nuclear reactions to inform nuclear structure and the synthesis of nuclei in the cosmos. She collaborates closely with scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

The successful candidate will become part of a team of scientists using transfer reactions to study properties of unstable nuclei of interest to both nuclear structure and astrophysics and would be expected to contribute to efforts to develop new hardware and/or software techniques and detector systems. Rutgers led the development of the ORRUBA array of position-sensitive silicon strip detectors that is being coupled to arrays a gamma-ray detectors including Gammasphere, GRETINA and the newly commissioned HAGRID array of LaBr scintillator detectors.

Please apply at :

Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae including bibliography of publications. A signed cover letter that includes a statement of accomplishments and interests is required. The candidate should also arrange for at three reference letters.

Minimum Education and Experience: A Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics is required. Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Professor Cizewski's group is based in the Oak Ridge-Knoxville, TN area and travels extensively to accelerator facilities for experimental campaigns. The candidate would be expected to be in residence in TN.
