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.
