Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Nuclear Physics

Hiring Agency: 
University of Massachusetts Lowell
Application Deadline: 
Tuesday, May 1st 2018

The Nuclear Physics group at the University of Massachusetts Lowell has an immediate PostDoctoral
opening to help exploit new opportunities in experimental research both at major
national user facilities and at our Radiation Laboratory. The current research in the group is in
fundamental nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics, and in detector R&D and applied nuclear
science using emerging scintillators and segmented Ge detectors. The Radiation Laboratory on
campus has a 1-MW research reactor and a 5.5-MV CN Van de Graaff accelerator. The
university is situated in the historic city of Lowell, on the Merrimack river, a half-hour northwest
of Boston.

We are looking for recent PhD graduates who want to take challenging roles in our existing
programs, but who will also be encouraged to pursue their own research interests. A Ph.D in
experimental nuclear physics or a closely related field is required. Experience with state-of-theart
nuclear detectors and techniques, as well as multi-parameter digital data acquisition and
analysis of accelerator-based experiments, is desirable.

The successful candidates will be integral members of the group, the faculty of which include
Professors Partha Chowdhury, Andrew Rogers and Peter Bender. They will be expected to help
mentor graduate and undergraduate students.

The appointments will be for two years contingent on continued external funding.

The University of Massachusetts Lowell is committed to increasing diversity in its faculty, staff,
and student populations, as well as curriculum and support programs, while promoting an
inclusive environment. We seek candidates who can contribute to that goal and encourage you to
apply and to identify your strengths in this area.
