Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The University of Notre Dame Physics Department is seeking a postdoctoral research associate in experimental neutrino physics. The position will include participation in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and in fixed-target hadron production measurements that quantify the DUNE neutrino flux. 

The successful applicant will take a leading role in the EMPHATIC and/or NA61 fixed-target experiments. EMPHATIC is a new experiment at Fermilab that will take an extensive set of measurements over the next several years, including data using a replica neutrino beam target and horn. NA61, located in the SPS beamline at CERN, has collected large sets of thin and thick target hadron production data and plans a future program aimed at tightly constraining the DUNE neutrino flux. 

For further information about this position, please contact Laura Fields ( 

A PhD in particle physics and a strong track record of recent accomplishments in experimental high energy physics are required. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation through AJO. Review of applications will begin Dec 1st, 2020 and continue until the position is filled. The successful candidate is expected to begin work in early 2021.
