A comprehensive land-, sea-, and space-grant university, UNH is the state's flagship public university and is ideally located in the rural town of Durham, with ready access to the Maine and New Hampshire seacoasts, Boston, and the White Mountains. The University actively creates and nurtures a dynamic learning environment in which qualified individuals of differing perspectives, life experiences and cultural backgrounds pursue goals with mutual respect and shared spirit of inquiry. UNH has just under 13,000 undergraduate students and 2,200 graduate students.
The Nuclear and Particle Physics Group at the University of New Hampshire (UNH NPG) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The successful candidate will take a leading role in our Jefferson Lab Tensor Spin program. They will also have the opportunity to contribute to the Spin Structure program including production of polarized ammonia for target material for both the Spin Structure and Tensor Spin programs, the Heavy Photon Search, and to propose and initiate new experiments.
The position is available starting September 1, 2017, and will remain open until filled. This is a one year appointment, which will be renewed for additional years contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance. Candidates are required to have a PhD in experimental nuclear or particle physics by the appointment start date. Experience in spin-dependent analysis and/or polarized targets would be an asset, as would experience working with solid ammonia and cryogenic, vacuum, and millimeter wave equipment.
Applicants should send a curriculum vita, summary of relevant research experience, and cover letter to Prof. Elena Long (email@example.com). Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to Prof. Elena Long (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications will be considered immediately upon arrival and should be sent no later than August 21st for full consideration. Inquiries may be sent to the same address. The UNH NPG's efforts are supported by the US Department of Energy.
Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics by starting date of position.
