Position Description:    

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

The Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a postdoctoral associate in Experimental Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics.

The Speller group conducts low-temperature experimental searches for physics beyond the standard model, with a concentration on direct searches for dark matter and neutrinoless double-beta decay. This position is for an opening within the group to perform searches for neutrinoless double-beta decay and related processes with the CUORE and CUPID collaborations. Upcoming projects will be focused on sensor testing, detector characterization, data analysis, and local detector R&D.

The applicant will be expected to work closely with graduate and undergraduate students in local hardware and software development efforts, and in the commissioning of a facility on campus to test sensors for a next generation double-beta decay experiment.

Candidates should have a PhD in experimental nuclear or particle physics or a related field. Experience in cryogenics and data analysis is strongly preferred.

Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, brief statement of research, and three letters of recommendation.

Inquires may be sent to Professor Danielle H. Speller at

Review of applications will start on December 1, 2021 and will continue until position is filled. JHU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
