The Medium Energy Physics Group at the Triangle Universities Nuclear
Laboratory (TUNL) and Duke University invites applications for a
Postdoctoral Research Associate position.
The group has research interests which include studies of nucleon
structure at the High Intensity Gamma Source (HIGS) facility at the Duke
Free Electron Laboratory and Jefferson Lab, e.g. the neutron transversity
study employing a polarized 3He target in Hall A at Jefferson Lab,
the double polarization Compton scattering experiment from a polarized
3He target at HIGS to extract the neutron spin polarizabilities and
polarized photodisintegration of 3He to test the Gerasimov-Drell-Hearn 
(GDH) sum rule on 3He. The group also has an active program in
studies of fundamental symmetries and the search for QCD exotic state(s),
e.g. a new neutron EDM experiment aiming at two orders of magnitude
improvement over the current limit at the Fundamental Neutron Physics
Beam-line (FNPB) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and the search for a 
phi-nucleon bound state at Jefferson Laboratory.

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, to commence on April 1, 2010 or as soon as possible 
thereafter. Based on mutual satisfaction and continued funding, the 
possibility for extension exists for a maximum of three years. 
Applicants should submit a vita and brief statement of research 
interests, and should have three letters of recommendation sent to:
Professor Haiyan Gao (gao at phy.duke.edu), TUNL Box 90308, Duke University,
Durham, NC 27708-0308. Duke University prohibits discrimination and
