The Polarized Target group at the University of Virginia invites
applications for a postdoctoral research associate position. Our group
currently has two research faculty, one research scientist and one
post-doctoral research associate, and 3 graduate students.
The successful candidate will join our group's program of studies with
both polarized and unpolarized targets. At Fermilab we have a major role
in the upcoming polarized Drell-Yan experiment. At Jefferson Lab we have
spokesperson responsibilities for experiments in Hall A, Hall B and Hall
C with a focus on spin degrees of freedom with both electrons and
photons. Our other major focus is on extracting the momentum and energy
distribution of nucleons in the ground state of the nucleus, especially
the short distance behavior of interacting nucleons.
Our group has a strong program of target physics studies in our
polarized target laboratory where we have a 4He evaporation refrigerator
working with an 8 T superconducting solenoid. A dilution refrigerator is
under development. Polarized materials are tested under irradiation and
chemical doping for use in Jefferson Lab experiments.
Opportunities to participate in other related experiments in all four
halls at Jefferson Lab are available. The successful candidate is
expected to play a leading role in the preparation, data collection and
analysis phases of one or more of these experiments, and is encouraged
to propose new experiments.
The completion of a Ph.D. degree in Physics by appointment start date is
required. Candidates with a background in experimental nuclear or
particle physics are preferred. Experience in the analysis of spin
structure experiments and with solid polarized targets are important.
This is a one year appointment however appointments may be renewed for
an additional two, one-year increments and is contingent upon available
funding and satisfactory performance.
To apply, please submit a candidate profile on-line and attach a cover
letter, curriculum vitae and the contact information for three
professional references through Jobs at UVA (https://jobs.virginia.edu);
search on posting 0617436.
Review of applications will begin on November 02, 2015; however, the
position will remain open until filled.
