Job Description:

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 
physics preferred.

Application Instructions:
To apply online, please go to 
http://umass.interviewexchange.com/jobofferdetails.jsp?JOBID=46823 and 
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 
Opportunity Employer.
