Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to work on
precisions tests of the Standard Model with the Experimental Nuclear
Physics Group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The successful
candidate will work primarily on the new muon g-2 experiment E989 at
Fermilab. This exciting experiment aims at a four-fold improved
measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon to an accuracy
of 0.14 ppm. Comparison with theoretical predictions allows a precision
test of the Standard Model, with outstanding sensitivity to new physics
at the TeV-scale. UMass has responsibilities for precision NMR-based
magnetic field measurements and analysis, and other aspects of the
experiment. More details can be found at http://muon-g-2.fnal.gov
The position is for one year initially, with the possibility of renewal
for up to three years upon mutual agreement and availability of funds.
The position is based initially at UMass, then Fermilab.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in experimental physics with experience in
precision measurements in atomic, molecular, nuclear, or particle
To apply online, please go to
submit a current CV and a description of research interests. Also,
please arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent separately
by email to: kawall at physics.umass.edu <mailto:kawall at physics.umass.edu>.
Review of applications will begin March 12th. The nominal start date
is April 15, 2014. The position will remain open until filled.
The Physics Department is committed in its efforts to hire candidates
who will enhance the diversity and gender balance its faculty, staff and
students. We encourage women and members of minority groups to apply.
The University of Massachusetts is an Affirmative Action/Equal
