|The Department of Physics at Syracuse University has an exciting postdoctoral opportunity available to work on the program at Jefferson Laboratory, Newport News VA to measure parity-violating electroweak asymmetries. The primary responsibility will be to participate in the design of two new major spectrometers, SOLID and MOLLER. The candidate will also have the opportunity to participate in ongoing experiments at Jlab, including the commissioning and data taking of the approved PREx and CREx parity-violating electron scattering experiments in Hall A.
The successful candidate will join members of the Experimental Nuclear Physics group conducting experiments to test the Standard Model, as well as low energy QCD, and the neutron distribution inside nuclei.
The candidate will have the flexibility to reside either in Syracuse, NY or Newport News, VA.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Prior experience with both software and hardware in accelerator-based experiments is desirable.
Interested candidates must complete an online application at www.sujobopps.com, (job #072577) and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae and contact information for three professional references, to provide letters of recommendation on request.
