The Experimental Nuclear Physics group lead by Prof. David Armstrong in the Department of Physics at William & Mary invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate beginning as early as November 10 2021. The position is for three years, renewable each year based on performance and funding availability.

The successful candidate will be expected to make significant contributions to the development of the MOLLER project at Jefferson Laboratory. MOLLER is a parity-violating electron scattering experiment in preparation for Hall A at Jefferson Laboratory, with a goal to search for new physics beyond the Standard Model at the TeV scale. The work will involve simulation, design, construction, and testing of hardware for the experiment and planning for the execution of the experiment. Duties may also include supervising and coordinating the work of other researchers including graduate and undergraduate students. Inquiries regarding the position can be directed to: Prof. David Armstrong (dsarms@wm.edu).

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or particle physics or a closely related field by the starting date, and have expertise in an area relevant to the group’s research program. These include experimental hardware, data acquisition, analysis and simulations.

Preferred qualification - Familiarity with electron scattering experimental techniques including GEM detectors, C++, GEANT4 and related CERN library software.

Applicants must apply on-line at https://jobs.wm.edu/postings/43505 and submit a cover letter to include research interests, a curriculum vitae and the contact information for three references.

Review of applications will begin October 1, 2021. Applications received after that date will be considered only if needed.

William & Mary values diversity and invites applications from underrepresented groups who will enrich the research, teaching and service missions of the university. William & Mary is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and encourages applications from women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities. The university conducts background checks on applicants for employment.
