Position Description:    

The Quantum Monte Carlo group in the Physics Department at Washington University in St. Louis is anticipating an opening for a postdoctoral position on nuclear many-body theory starting in Fall 2023 (dates are flexible). 

The successful candidate will be working with Profs. Piarulli and Pastore, and collaborators. The group research interests cover a broad range of topics, including nuclear structure, electroweak structure and reactions, neutrinoless double beta decay, electron and neutrino scattering off light- to medium-mass nuclei, and infinite nucleonic matter. Further information on our group and its research activities can be found at: https://physics.wustl.edu/quantum-monte-carlo-group ;

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in nuclear theory or a closely related field by the beginning of the postdoctoral appointment. Experience in high-performance computing and/or Bayesian methods and/or reaction theory and/or machine-learning methods is preferred. 

The appointment will be for two years (renewal for a third year is probable, but is contingent on funding availability). Interested candidates should submit an application that includes:
  • a cover letter, 
  • a curriculum vitae,
  • a complete list of publications, 
  • a statement of research interests, 
  • three letters of recommendation. 
 Please apply at AJO. Questions regarding the position should be addressed to Prof. Piarulli (mpiarulli@physics.wustl.edu). 

Our selection process will start immediately and proceed till the position is filled.
