Position Description:    

The theoretical particle and nuclear physics group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of South Carolina invites applications from outstanding researchers for a post-doctoral position starting on or about September 1, 2023.

The successful candidate will work with Professor Alexey Petrov on various projects in effective field theories, flavor physics and CP violation, baryon and lepton number violation, and applications of machine learning to physics of strong interactions. For more experienced applicants, the appointment could be made at the non-tenure-track Research Assistant Professor level.

Applications, including a CV, a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation, should be uploaded to AcademicJobsOnline (AJO). The deadline for the applications is December 1, 2022. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled. Informal inquiries are welcome and should be sent to Alexey Petrov at

The particle and nuclear theory group at the University of South Carolina consists of six faculty members, including Brett Altschul, Vladimir Gudkov, Pawel Mazur, Alexander Monin, Alexey Petrov, and Matthias Schindler.

 The University of South Carolina also has strong experimental particle and nuclear physics groups whose members are involved in the research programs at Jefferson Lab, Fermi National Accelerator Lab (DUNE), Gran Sasso, and CERN.

The University of South Carolina does not discriminate in educational or employment opportunities on the basis of race, sex, gender, gender identity, transgender status, age, color, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, genetics, protected veteran status, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions.
