Nuclear/High-Energy Physicist (Scientist 2/3)
What You Will Do
The Physics Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory invites applicants for a staff scientist position in the High Energy Nuclear Physics team of the Subatomic Physics Group (P-25). The team currently works primarily on heavy ion, cold nuclear matter and spin physics at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), and on nucleon structure, quark energy loss and Dark Photon/Dark Higgs search physics at Fermilab. The team has led the construction of the two PHENIX muon trackers, the recent forward silicon vertex tracker (FVTX) upgrade and associated physics program, and is leading the development of a Monolithic-Active-Pixel-Sensors (MAPS) based vertex detector for the next generation heavy ion experiment (sPHENIX) at RHIC at BNL. The team is also leading the construction of polarized NH3/ND3 targets and a new Dark Photon/Higgs Trigger and DAQ upgrade at Fermilab.
This position will be filled at either the Scientist 2 or 3 level, depending on the skills of the selected candidate.
Scientist 2 ($86,000-$141,800)
The successful candidate will be a primary participant in the design and construction of the MAPS detector for sPHENIX, work on related physics analyses and program development at RHIC, Large Hadron Collider at CERN (LHC) and the future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). In addition to performing outstanding research, the candidate is expected to submit research proposals to LANL's Directed Research and Development (LDRD) program and to the DOE Office of Science. Candidates with research interests compatible with experimental high-energy nuclear physics programs are particularly encouraged to apply.
Scientist 3 ($94,500-$157,800)
In addition to the job responsibilities outlined above, the Scientist 3 will:
Provide physics and technical leadership to the sPHENIX MAPS project and be a key member of the team that works on development and implementation of institutional initiatives. The applicant will help direct the physics program, build teams, and be a primary participant in reaching major science milestones.
Where You Will Work
Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. LANL enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.
