The Medium Energy Physics Group at the Triangle Universities Nuclear 
Laboratory, and at Duke University invites applications for a 
Postdoctoral Research Associate position. The group has research 
interests which include studies of nucleon structure at the High 
Intensity Gamma Source (HIGS) facility at the Duke University Free 
Electron Laser Laboratory and at Jefferson Lab, e.g. a precise 
measurement of the proton charge radius in Hall B at Jefferson Lab; the 
transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions (TMD) 
studies employing polarized 3He, and polarized NH3 targets, and the 
newly proposed SoLID device in Hall A with a 12-GeV CEBAF at Jefferson 
Lab; the double-polarization Compton scattering experiment from a 
polarized 3He target at HIGS to extract the neutron spin 
polarizabilities; and searches of exotic QCD states. The group is also 
actively involved in the development of TMD physics at a future 
electron-ion collider.

We are looking for candidates who can make creative and important 
contributions to our program. A PhD in experimental nuclear or particle 
physics or related fields is required. The initial appointment is for 
one year, which can commence immediately. Based on mutual satisfaction 
and continued funding, the possibility for extension exists for a 
maximum of two additional years. Applicants should submit a vita and 
brief statement of research interests, and should have three letters of 
recommendation sent to Academic Jobs Online at: 
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6985 .
