The Medium Energy Physics Group at Duke University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position.

The research activities of the group focus on the SIDIS program at the CLAS12 experiment at Jefferson Lab which just started data taking at JLab’s new 12 GeV beamline. The successful candidate is expected to contribute significantly to the physics program as well as the commissioning of the CLAS12 detector.

Our group is also actively participating in the Belle II experiment at KEK in Japan where we are mainly interested in the study of fragmentation functions and hadronization in general. This gives the candidate an opportunity to broaden their experience to e+e- annihilation measurements which are relevant for the JLab12 as well as a future EIC.

The associate will expected to travel for various, and possibly extended, periods to Jefferson Lab. We are looking for candidates who can make creative and important contributions to our program. A PhD in experimental nuclear or particle physics or related fields is required. The initial appointment is for one year, which can commence immediately. Based on mutual satisfaction and continued funding, the possibility for extension exists for a maximum of two additional years. Applicants should submit a vita and brief statement of research interests, and should have three letters of recommendation sent to Academic Jobs Online.
