Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Jefferson Lab

Position ID:Jlab-Theory-THPD21 [#17208, 12205]
Position Title: Postdoctoral Position in Nuclear Theory
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Newport News, Virginia 23606, United States [map]
Subject Area: Nuclear Theory
Appl Deadline: (posted 2020/10/16, listed until 2021/02/01)
Position Description:    

The Jefferson Lab Theory Center expects to have two postdoctoral positions beginning in the fall of 2021 to join a program of research in theoretical hadronic and nuclear physics that motivates and supports Jefferson Lab experiments at 12 GeV and beyond.

This includes: * Calculation of the properties of light nuclei and their electroweak interactions; * Studies of strong coupling QCD on the lattice and in the continuum to compute the spectrum, decays, transition form factors and multidimensional structure of hadrons; * The application of Effective Field Theories to nuclear and hadronic properties; * The application of QCD factorization to observables sensitive to single and multi-dimensional hadron structures (encoded in both TMDs and GPDs), and their extraction from data using QCD global analyses; * The application of scattering theory methods to the phenomenology of multi-hadron final states relevant for the spectroscopy program at JLab and elsewhere; * and the implication and extension of all such studies for a future Electron-Ion Collider.

These positions are normally for two years, but outstanding performance may allow an extension to a third year. There are established networking opportunities to interact and collaborate with researchers worldwide to bring global experience and expertise to bear on extracting definitive physics results from the JLab 12 GeV experimental program. You can find more about the Theory Center by clicking on: https://www.jlab.org/theory. A strong publication record in any of the areas of interest is essential, together with a PhD in hadron or nuclear physics.

Applicants must upload (1) a cover letter, (2) your cv, (3) three letters of recommendations, (4) research interest, and (5) a publication list through though this Academic Jobs Online site. The applicant must also apply to Jefferson Lab’s online application tracking system for Postdoctoral Research Positions at https://www.jlab.org/job-openings under job id#12205. The deadline for applications is November 29, 2020.

Position Requirements  * A PhD in an appropriate area of theoretical physics is a prerequisite, together with a record of publications in leading journals and talks at workshops and conferences. * Recognized research program in theoretical nuclear and/or hadron physics that overlaps with the JLab scientific program. Mental Requirements  * Ability to comprehend, formulate and communicate highly abstract concepts * Ability to express or exchange complex ideas by means of spoken and written communication Physical Requirements  * Ability to get across various locations on the laboratory site and access work areas * Visual capabilities sufficient to use computer workstations, read documents and see safety alarms * Auditory capabilities to hear safety alarms
