Stanford University, Gratta group in Physics

Position ID:Stanford University-Gratta group in Physics-POSTDOC [#23644]
Position Title: Postdoctoral Positions in the Fundamental Particles and Interactions group
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:STANFORD, California 943054060, United States
Subject Areas: Physics / High Energy Physics, Neutrino physics, Nuclear & Particle Experiment, Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics
Appl Deadline:none (accepting applications posted 2022/11/08)
Position Description:    

Stanford University invites applications for one or more postdoc positions in the Fundamental Particles and Interactions group in the Physics Department (http://grattalab3.stanford.edu/neutrino/index.html).

Activities in the group range from traditional nuclear and particle physics to AMO. For the most part, the new group members should be free to work on one or two of the following projects:

- R&D for the nEXO experiment (charge collection in liquid xenon, light detection with Silicon Photomultipliers, high voltage behavior in noble liquids, exotic calibration sources). nEXO recently received the go-ahead towards CD-1 from DOE, along with appropriate funding for it. More on this at http://grattalab3.stanford.edu/neutrino/zero_nu.html

- Search for new interactions at a distance below 50 um with optically levitated microspheres and other optomechanics topics involving optically levitated microspheres. Some information on these items, and a bibliography, are at http://grattalab3.stanford.edu/neutrino/gravity/index.html

- A new program using Mossbauer spectroscopy for precision measurements, based on https://journals.aps.org/prd/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevD.102.115031. More information on this is at http://grattalab3.stanford.edu/neutrino/Moss_index.html

Applications and supporting credentials must be submitted through Academic Jobs Online. Candidates should upload their curriculum vitae, publication list, a brief research statement, and arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online. For queries, please contact Sha Zhang (shazhang@stanford.edu). Candidates whose applications and supporting materials, including letters, are uploaded on or before Dec 10, 2022 will be guaranteed full consideration, but the search will continue until all positions are filled. Appointments are expected to begin in the Jan-Jun 2023 period.

Eligibility: For consideration, candidates must have completed a PhD degree in physics or equivalent prior to their tentative appointment date. The position(s) is (are) open to US citizens or international candidates. Candidates from groups that are under-represented in their disciplines, including women, ethnic minorities and individuals with disabilities, are encouraged to apply.
