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

The Heavy-Ion Group at the MIT Laboratory of Nuclear Science invites applications for a postdoctoral research position. Our group has leading roles in QCD studies in nucleus-nucleus and proton-nucleus collisions with the CMS experiment at LHC and sPHENIX at RHIC.

The successful candidate will play a major role in data taking and in the analysis of data from the experiments. The candidate will also provide an essential contribution to the development of the tracking silicon detector of the ePIC experiment at the Electron-Ion Collider, which will exploit CMOS Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors. The R&D activities for the ePIC silicon tracker, will be carried out at CERN and at MIT. Consequently, a strong background in silicon detector technologies, sensor characterization and data-acquisition techniques is desirable.

Review of applications will begin immediately, and the position will remain open until filled. To ensure full consideration, candidates should apply by August 1, 2023. Interested candidates should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, a brief statement of research interests and experience, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted online.

The appointment will initially be for one year, and may be further renewed upon satisfactory performance and available funding.

All material should be sent electronically via Academic Jobs Online (AJO)

Job Requirements: Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in Physics or Electronics.

Any questions should also be directed to Prof. Gunther Roland.
