State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral 
Research Associate position in Experimental High Energy 
Nuclear Physics. The position will be based at the 
Brookhaven National Laboratory as part of the PHENIX 
Collaboration at RHIC. We are particularly interested 
in physics studies involving the PHENIX Forward Vertex 
Detector (FVTX), which will be installed in PHENIX by 
summer 2011. The FVTX is part of a comprehensive package 
of upgrades to PHENIX which will make possible precision 
studies in heavy-ion and polarized p-p collisions during 
the higher luminosities we anticipate in the second decade 
of RHIC running.  The successful candidate with work with

students. A doctoral degree or equivalent in physics is 
required; experience in experimental medium or high-energy 
nuclear physics or particle physics is preferred.  Salaries 
are competitive and a comprehensive package of benefits is 
offered. Please send a formal letter of interest with a CV 
and a list of publications, and the names, addresses, and 
e-mail addresses of at least three persons who are willing
