Research Associate position on Heavy Ion Reactions at Beijing Normal
The Symmetry Energy Project group at Beijing Normal University is
looking for an experimental Research Associate. Successful candidate is
expected to join the SPiRIT collaboration. SPiRIT stands for SAMURAI
Pion Reconstruction Ion Tracker which is a Time Projection Chamber (TPC)
built to fit inside the SAMURAI dipole magnet at RIKEN. One major
scientific goal of the collaboration is to determine the Equation of
State of Asymmetric Nuclear Matter by measuring the density dependence
of the symmetry energy. Construction of the SPiRIT TPC at Michigan State
University (MSU) is near completion and will be shipped to RIKEN, Japan
early next year. The Research Associate is expected to spend time in
RIKEN working on the installation and testing of the TPC as well as
development of analysis software. The TPC experimental program is
expected to start in Spring of 2015. In addition to experiments at
RIKEN, there are opportunities for the Research Associate to participate
in experiments at the Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan
State University working with Professor Betty Tsang. The
cross-continents collaboration provides a great opportunity for anyone
interested in research in nuclear reactions at low to medium energy.
Interested applicants should send their CVs or inquiries to
fszhang at bnu.edu.cn or tsang at nscl.msu.edu.
