*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Nuclear Theory Program at LBNL anticipates having postdoctoral fellow positions available starting in the summer or fall of 2015. In particular, we hope to make appointments in lattice QCD and in numerical astrophysics focused on explosive environments and nucleosynthesis. Other major areas of interest include a) QCD matter at high temperatures and densities, QCD hard processes in nuclear collisions and jet propagation, transport descriptions at both the partonic and hadronic levels, and b) Weak interactions, low-energy tests of symmetries, and many-body theory. Candidates with research interests in any of these areas are encouraged to apply.

Successful candidates must have a recent Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics and the ability to work productively within LBNL’s diverse research environment, including the production and publication of original research and the effective presentation of research results in seminars and at scientific meetings.

Senior members of the LBNL/Berkeley group include Wick Haxton, Dan Kasen, Volker Koch, Jorgen Randrup, Xin-Nian Wang, and Feng Yuan. The LBNL/Berkeley research environment is a vibrant one with strong and diverse postdoctoral and visitor programs.

The postdoctoral appointment will be for one-year with the possibility of renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance, continued funding, and ongoing needs. A background check is required for all LBNL hires. Multiple positions may be hired.

Requested application materials: Please submit your CV, a publication list, a statement of research interest, and arrange for three letters of reference.

To ensure full consideration, interested candidates are requested to submit their applications before the deadline of December 5, 2014.

For further inquiries please contact Volker Koch (vkoch [at] lbl [dot] gov).
