The Physics Department at The Catholic University of America seeks to
fill a tenure-track assistant professor position in experimental nuclear
physics, to begin in August 2018.
Our research program focuses on the study of hadron structure and
spectroscopy with electromagnetic probes focused in Experimental Halls C
and D at the Jefferson Laboratory (JLab) - a flagship US nuclear physics
facility in the US. The CUA research at JLab pushes the energy scale for
hard exclusive and semi-inclusive processes requiring precision and high
luminosity, to validate the foundation of 3D transverse spatial and
momentum imaging. CUA’s research concentrates on the understanding of
the structure of the lightest mesons – pions and kaons, and the
intriguing possibility of discovery of exotic mesons with gluons. The
CUA group has a strong history of involvement at JLab, and a strong
interest in Particle Identification Detectors, in particular with DIRC
detectors, aerogel detectors, and electromagnetic calorimeters. CUA
built and is responsible for the aerogel Cherenkov detector in Hall C,
leads the construction of the Neutral Particle Spectrometer (NPS) in
Hall C, and is involved in the DIRC detector in Hall D. We are further
active in the development of the Electron Ion Collider (EIC), a next
generation experimental facility, which would allow for studies of the
fundamental gluon structure of matter, and their relation to the
emergence of mass.
We seek candidates who understand, are enthusiastic about, and will make
a significant contribution to the mission of the University, which can
be found here: https://www.cua.edu/about-cua/mission-statement.cfm
We are searching mainly for candidates with a primary interest in the
program of hadronic and nuclear physics carried out at JLab. The
successful candidate will have a strong commitment to excellence in
teaching and will be expected to build a strong research program that
will enhance the current programs at the Catholic University of America.
We plan to hire at the assistant professor level, but will also consider
particularly qualified more senior applicants.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics or a related field, have
demonstrated the ability to initiate and lead research, have an
established record of publications in scientific journals, and good
teaching skills. Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, publication
record including citation information, research plan, teaching plan, and
a one- to two-page personal statement indicating how the candidate,
through her or his research, teaching, and service, would make a
distinctive contribution to advancing the University’s mission.
The University will perform background checks on all new faculty hires
prior to making the final offer of employment.
