The University of Winnipeg Subatomic Physics Group has an immediate 
opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow. Our group is a member of the 
Ultracold Neutron (UCN) collaboration at TRIUMF (Canada's National 
Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Science, Vancouver) seeking to make 
a new measurement of the neutron electric dipole moment (EDM).

The successful candidate for this position is expected to focus on and 
contribute in a significant manner to the development of ultracold 
neutron guides, neutron production and transport, and magnetic fields 
for the experiment.  There may also be the opportunity to support UCN 
detector development work.  The position would be based in Winnipeg; 
some travel to Vancouver will be required.  The candidate will be 
expected to develop proposals and ideas for new experiments, such as 
commissioning experiments for the proton beamline and UCN source at TRIUMF.

The person we seek will ideally have a recent PhD in experimental 
nuclear, particle, accelerator, surface, or atomic physics (or a related 
field), with several years of graduate level hardware experience in one 
or more of the areas of detector, beam line, or data acquisition 
development, or similar instrumentation projects.

The group at the University of Winnipeg has a number of local 
Winnipeg-based laboratories dedicated to R&D for the UCN project at 
TRIUMF.  These include a magnetic fields R&D laboratory, laser 
facilities for alkali (Rb, Cs) and polarized noble gas (Xe) magnetometry 
development, and detector development laboratories with clean-room 

The initial appointment will be for one year, with possible renewal for 
up to two additional years, depending on mutual agreement and 
availability of funds.

All qualified candidates are invited to submit resumes, including three 
letters of reference by e-mail to j.martin at uwinnipeg.ca 
<mailto:j.martin at uwinnipeg.ca> to the attention of Dr. Jeff Martin, 
Physics Department, The University of Winnipeg, 515 Portage Ave., 
Winnipeg, MB, R3B 2E9.  Review of applications will begin immediately 
and the position will remain open until filled.  For more information 
please contact Dr. Jeff Martin at (204)786-9443 <tel:%28204%29786-9443>.
