Job Title: POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE Job Code: 3820 Job Family: JF 27

The main tasks will be divided between supporting and performing research at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory's Enge split-pole spectrograph, and computing nuclear astrophysics observables with stellar modelling codes. For the spectrograph program, the postdoc will assist with the general upkeep and upgrade of the spectrograph, designing parts, maintaining the vacuum system, and maintaining the focal-plane detector. They will help lead any experiments performed using this equipment. They will also be responsible for upgrading the digital data acquisition system for the spectrograph. Their computational astrophysics work will focus on computing nucleosynthesis for a range of environments, identifying important reactions to measure and developing experiments to subsequently measure them. As part of this latter effort, the postdoc will also have some role in evaluating the current literature to produce recommended reaction rates.

A PhD or equivalent doctorate (e.g. ScD, MD, DVM) is a requirement for the position.

Applicants should submit a CV, a brief description of research experience, and the names of three potential references to Senior Research Project Manager Shaun Diehl (shaun.diehl@duke.edu).
