Physics, McGill University

Position ID:McGill-Physics-PDF [#9315]
Position Title: Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Montreal, Quebec H3A 2T8, Canada [map]
Subject Area: Physics / Particle Physics
Appl Deadline: (posted 2017/07/03, listed until 2017/12/14)
Position Description:    

The experimental Particle Physics Group at McGill University is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join the team and contribute to the local research program that focuses on the search for neutrinoless double beta decays in xenon-136. The group at McGill is involved in data analysis and operation of the EXO-200 detector, and developments for the next-generation experiment nEXO. These developments focus on integration of small-area photon detectors, so-called silicon photomultipliers (SiPM), into arrays of larger surface area. In parallel, the group also develops techniques to extract ions from xenon gas for Ba-tagging applications. Candidates should have a background in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Experience in detector operation and development (especially noble liquid and photon detectors), data analysis (ROOT), and Monte Carlo simulations (Geant4) would be advantageous. Candidates need to have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field at the time of appointment. Ph.D. candidates should indicate when they are expecting to fulfill their Ph.D. requirements. The appointment is initially for one year with the possibility of renewal for up to three years.

Interested candidates should submit their application online. The application should include a cover letter (addressing how you meet the job requirements), a statement of purpose (explaining your scientific goals), and a current C.V. with the following categories preferred: educational background, degree dates, GPA with scale, experience, invited presentations, publications. Please arrange for at least two letters of reference to support your application. The cover letter needs to indicate EXO in the subject line. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. For inquiries about the position please contact Dr. Thomas Brunner (
