Hall D/GlueX is a new facility for high-intensity photon beam 
experiments at Jefferson Lab. The initial physics program
includes the search for gluon excitations in the light meson spectra and 
precise measurements in Primakoff reactions.
The commissioning of the facility is under way and the next beam 
delivery is scheduled for November 2015.

The Hall D postdoctoral fellow is expected to take part in commissioning 
and calibration of detector systems,
as well as inconstruction of a new particle identification detector for 
Hall D, based on the DIRC technology.

It is also expected that the postdoctoral fellow will take part in the 
initial physics program and in developing
new experimental ideas, along with the staff scientists and the user
