The Nuclear Theory Group at the University of Washington anticipates filling one fulltime postdoctoral scholar (research associate) position to start in September 2020.  Outstanding candidates in nuclear theory, broadly defined, are invited to apply. This position is a full-time, 12-month (one-year) appointment which may be extended (upon successful performance) up to a maximum term of three years.

The Theoretical Nuclear Physics Group consists of four faculty members [S. R. Beane, A. Bulgac, G. A. Miller, and R. Stroberg], postdoctoral scholars, and students. Current group research interests include many-body theory and nuclear structure, lattice gauge theory and effective field theories, heavy-ion collisions, nuclear reactions at high and low energies, JLab and EIC physics, weak interactions and fundamental symmetries, and nuclear astrophysics. Members of the group are also interested in aspects of quantum information science with applications in the physics of QCD.

Postdoctoral scholars are represented by UAW 4121 and are subject to the collective bargaining agreement, unless agreed exclusion criteria apply. For more information, please visit the University of Washington Labor Relations website.

Interested candidates should submit application materials via Interfolio at  http://apply.interfolio.com/67081

Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent degree (or scheduled to be completed prior to the start date) in theoretical nuclear physics or a closely related field.  Any questions may be directed to Professor Gerald Miller:  miller@uw.edu. Note that the Nuclear Theory Group is distinct from the Institute for Nuclear Theory and therefore submitting to one does not guarantee consideration by both.
