Postdoctoral Position in the Medium Energy Group (Vossen) at Duke University to work on CLAS12 and the EIC

The medium energy group of Prof. Vossen at Duke University invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate to work on our research program at the CLAS12 experiment at Jefferson Lab as well as the future Electron Ion Collider.

Our group plays a leading role in the exploration of the quark-gluon structure of the proton using semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering and related probes at CLAS12 and we are looking for candidates who can make creative and important contributions to our program

A significant part of the position will be concentrated on EIC R&D efforts. Here, the group is involved in simulation, software and hardware efforts for Cherenkov based PID detectors for the EIC project detector as well as the muon id system for a possible second detector.

We are looking for candidates who can make creative and important contributions to our program. A PhD in experimental nuclear physics or related fields is required. The initial appointment is for one year, which can commence immediately. Based on mutual satisfaction and continued funding, the possibility for extension exists for a maximum of two additional years.

Applicants should submit a vita and brief statement of research interests and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to AJO. Applications received before November 1st will be guaranteed consideration. The position will remain open until filled.

Questions about the position can be addressed to Anselm Vossen (anselm.vossen@duke.edu).
