Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory seeks highly qualified candidates for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position on the Mu2e experiment.

Fermilab has a strong and exciting research program with major commitments to a diverse range of Intensity Frontier initiatives. We are in the process of commissioning and developing future experiments such as Mu2e, Muon g-2, SBN, and DUNE as well as continuing to analyze data taken by MicroBooNE, NOvA, and MINERvA.

The Research Associate will play a leading role in the construction and testing of the Mu2e tracker, a state-of-the-art low-mass straw drift tube chamber. The candidate will also play a leading role in the data analysis of Muon g-2 or another ongoing experiment in the Fermilab program.

Additional information is available at for Mu2e and at for Muon g-2.

This position is contingent on the availability of funding, and is for a period of up to three (3) years, with the potential for extension considered on a yearly basis thereafter.

The successful candidate will be expected to respect, understand, and value individual differences that embody the principles of diversity and to abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations.
