The Solid Polarized Target group at the University of Virginia invites 
applications for a post-doctoral research associate position, to start 
in early 2018. Our group currently has three senior members, two 
post-doctoral research associates, and 3 graduate students.

We are the leading domestic University-based solid polarized target 
research group and actively pursue R&D in evaporation and dilution 
refrigerators, superconducting magnets, NMR systems and the dynamic 
nuclear polarization of target materials.

The successful candidate will join our efforts on the polarized Seaquest 
experiment (E1039) at Fermilab and at Jefferson Lab where we are have 
commitments in multiple halls. The ultimate aim of our program is to 
understand the structure of nucleons and nuclei. The associate will 
expected to travel for various, and possibly extended, periods to 
Jefferson Lab and Fermilab.

The successful applicant will acquire the skills needed to contribute to 
research with polarized targets and nuclear/particle spin-physics 
analysis as well as play a leading role in the preparation and data 
collection of one or more of our experiments. They will be expected to 
propose new experiments.

A Ph.D. in experimental or theoretical nuclear, particle, or high-energy 
physics (or closely related field) is required before the start date. 
Applicants must have good written and verbal communication skills as 
indicated by scientific publications in preeminent refereed journals, 
conference presentations, etc. and must possess a general knowledge of 
nuclear and particle physics.

Experience/expertise in one or more of the following areas is strongly 
desired: Physics of medium- or high-energy electron scattering; advanced 
statistical analysis techniques; previous analysis of asymmetry data; 
experience with high vacuum and cryogenics, polarization technologies, 
and scientific software development experience with one or more of the 
following: GEANT4, Fluka, C++, Python and LabView.

To apply, please submit a candidate profile on-line through Jobs at Uva 
and electronically attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae and the 
contact information for three professional references; search on posting 
number 0622376. 

Review of applications will begin January 25, 2018; 
however, the position will remain open until filled.
