There will be a postdoctoral position available in the Symmetry Energy
Group (http://groups.nscl.msu.edu/hira/sep.htm) headed by Professors
Betty Tsang and Bill Lynch at the National Superconducting Cyclotron
Laboratory, Michigan State University. The new postdoc is expected to be
involved with building the *SAMURAI Time-Projection-Chamber *to be used
in experiments to explore the Nuclear Equation of State of Asymmetric
matter with heavy ion collisions at RIKEN. The results of these
experiments will have important implications on studies of the symmetry
energy in the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), a $550 M project
to be built at Michigan State University.
The successful candidates will be an integral member of the HiRA
research group, (http://groups.nscl.msu.edu/hira/) at NSCL and will also
be involved in the other research activities with the group. These
activities include exploring the symmetry energy using heavy ion
reactions at NSCL, GSI and RIKEN, as well as an active program to study
nuclear structure and reaction mechanisms using transfer reactions with
rare isotope beams. The successful candidate must have the potential to
acquire new working knowledge quickly, good problem solving skills and
is motivated to learn about properties of nuclear matter. The following
skills are desired but not required: knowledge and experience in using
GEANT4 simulations, ROOT analysis, gas detectors, FPGA programming, TPC
design and electronics. If desired, the successful candidate will have
opportunities to teach and to mentor graduate and undergraduate students.
Interested person should contact Prof. Betty Tsang at tsang at nscl.msu.edu.
