POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN SPIN PHYSICS with STAR and EIC. 

 The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Riverside invites applications for a term appointment to conduct research in experimental nucleon spin physics. The appointed individual will work on analysis of polarized proton data taken by the STAR experiment at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. In particular, the selected candidate will focus on measurements of jets in transversely polarized collisions using the STAR forward calorimeter system. The candidate will also work on R&D for EIC calorimeters and closely related projects. 

The UCR spin group is also working on analysis involving the FMS system, and calorimeter development for the EIC. The group works closely with UCR's heavy-ion group, which is led by Prof. Richard Seto, and with members of the California EIC consortium (https://uceic.physics.ucla.edu/index.html). The candidate may be in residence at Brookhaven National Laboratory or in Riverside depending on the exact work plan.
