Our research interests are concentrated on QCD and strong interactions, including phenomenology of relativistic heavy ion collisions, nuclear structure theory, topological quantum phase transitions and effective field theory. In addition, we have an active nuclear experimental program.

Applications should include a CV, a list of publications and a description of research interests. In addition, applicants should arrange to have three letters of recommendation. All materials must be submitted through The deadline for applications and letters of recommendation is March 15, 2024 or until the position is filled.
