Postdoctoral Associate (Hadronics)
Posted: 09/14/12
Job number: MIT-00009052

The Laboratory for Nuclear Science at MIT invites applications for a 
postdoctoral research associate position
to work on the GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab. The main goal of GlueX 
is to understand the nature of
confinement in QCD by mapping the spectrum of mesons in which the 
gluonic field binding the quarks is in
an excited state. The successful candidate will play a major role in 
designing and building a Cherenkov-based
particle ID system for GlueX. The inclusion of such a system will 
greatly expand the physics potential of the experiment. The candidate 
will also have the opportunity to analyze data once the experiment 
begins to take data.
A Ph.D. in experimental physics with experience in hardware is required. 
Please send a Curriculum Vitae,
publication list, and three letters of recommendation to:
Mr. Kenneth Hewitt
Laboratory for Nuclear Science
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
77 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge, MA 02139-4307
