Research Associate Position
Experimental Particle Physics
University of Virginia

The Experimental Particle Physics group at the University of Virginia 
has an immediate opening for a research associate in the field of 
elementary particle physics.  The research goals of our group include the
investigation of the fundamental symmetries of nature.  We are playing a 
leading role on two Fermilab experiments:  NOVA, which is currently 
being built and will start taking data in early 2011, and Mu2e, which is 
in the R&D stage.  NOVA will be one of the seminal neutrino experiments 
in the
coming decade; Mu2e, a flagship experiment for the future Fermilab 
high-intensity physics program, will search for lepton flavor violation 
with unprecedented

The Virginia group has major responsibilities for the construction of 
the near and far NOVA neutrino detectors: we are solely responsible for 
the fabrication of the power distribution system.  On Mu2e we are 
leading the Cosmic Ray Veto detector group, which will be fabricated at 

The successful applicant will be resident at Fermilab and is expected to 
take a leadership role in the NOVA physics analysis, and to participate 
in the Mu2e R&D program.  Applicants must have a PhD in experimental 
particle or nuclear physics.  The position is immediately available and 
will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found.  Interested 
candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a description of their 
research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to 
be sent to:
