Position Description:    

Today is the last day you can apply for this position; no new applications will be accepted after 2023/12/08 11:59PM US Eastern Time.

The T-2 group (Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology) in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory invites applications for postdoctoral positions in Nuclear Theory to begin in Fall 2024. Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in nuclear theory or a closely related field by the beginning of the postdoctoral appointment (but no earlier than December 2018 per LANL policy).

We conduct research on a broad set of topics, including effective theories of strong and weak interactions, heavy-ion physics and physics of the quark-gluon plasma, low-energy phenomenology within and beyond the Standard Model, neutrino physics and astrophysics, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear structure, perturbative QCD, and quantum few- and many-body systems, and quantum computing. Candidates in all these areas are strongly encouraged to apply. Scientists in the group working in these areas include Joe Carlson, Stefano Gandolfi, Kaori Fuyuto, Christopher Lee, Emanuele Mereghetti, Duff Neill, Ingo Tews and Ivan Vitev. We collaborate actively with our colleagues in high-energy theory and applied nuclear theory in T-2 and have close ties with our colleagues in astrophysics, cosmology, condensed matter/quantum information and experimental physics.

Exceptionally well qualified candidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoctoral Fellowship or Distinguished (Feynman/Oppenheimer) Postdoctoral Fellowship. Candidates wishing to be considered for these Fellowships must have all application materials submitted by Monday, October 16, 2023.

Los Alamos is an equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. Interested applicants should submit their applications (CV, research statement, and list of publications) on academicjobsonline.org and arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation uploaded on your behalf.

Applications for group postdoc positions should be submitted by Friday, December 8, 2023, for full consideration.
