Position Description:    

The newly funded FAPESP topical collaboration on Hadronic Physics in High Energy Nuclear Collisions, (Projeto temático FAPESP 2017/05685-2) composed of members from the high energy nuclear physics groups at the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and the University of São Paulo (USP), and State University of São Paulo (UNESP) invites applications for three postdoctoral FAPESP fellowships on phenomenological aspects of heavy ion collisions, broadly defined.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: relativistic hydrodynamics, high-multiplicity proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions, and hadronic cascade models.
One of the post-doc position is also open for experimental work with the ALICE group in Campinas.

One of the three positions will be located at USP under the supervision of Profs. Jorge Noronha and Matthew Luzum. The other two will be located at UNICAMP under the supervision of Profs. Jun Takahashi and David Chinellato.

FAPESP postdoctoral fellowships are for two years, with a possibility for extension up to four years, and pay an annual tax- free salary of 86,000 Brazilian reais and 12,900 Brazilian reais/year for travel and research expenses. In addition, moving costs equal to 1 month's salary is included for those relocating more than 400 km. Applications should include a CV (including a list of publications), research statement, and three letters of recommendation to be submitted by e-mail to Jun Takahashi ( ), Jorge Noronha ( and Matt Luzum ( Review of applications will begin on December 1st and will continue until both positions have been filled. An interview through remote connection will be requested for some applicants.
The starting date for successful candidates is flexible, but is anticipated to be in August 2018 or earlier.
