POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Laboratory for Nuclear Science-Hadronic Physics Group, to help with the development of a high rate, scalable readout system for future nuclear physics experiments. In addition to work developing the readout system, will also participate in the other experimental projects the group is involved with such as the DarkLight experiment at JLab or work towards a future electron-ion collider, EIC.
The project offers a unique opportunity to play a leading role in the development of cutting-edge technology which will be essential for next-generation subatomic physics experiments.
REQUIRED: a recent Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics; and experience with and an aptitude for electronics and FPGA, GPU, or similar programming. Familiarity with VME or ATCA systems would also be an advantage. Job #13921
