The National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) is seeking highly qualified individuals as post-doctoral fellows in experimental nuclear physics and related instrumentation R&D. The appointment as a Research Assistant Professor is possible for exceptionally qualified individuals.
The NSCL is the forefront facility in the United States for nuclear physics with rare isotope beams and is in the process of developing new research capabilities with stopped and reaccelerated beams. In addition, MSU has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to design and establish the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB).
Nuclear physics research at the NSCL addresses key questions concerning the creation of the elements in the cosmos, the limits of nuclear stability, the properties of nuclei with very unusual neutron-to-proton ratios, and the equation of state of neutron-rich nuclear matter as it may exist inside neutron stars.
Currently, NSCL is especially looking for individuals with an interest in:
-The Low Energy Beam and Ion Trap (LEBIT) and the Single Ion Penning Trap (SIPT). Contact: Georg Bollen (email@example.com)
-Fundamental Interactions in atomic nuclei. Contact: Oscar Naviliat-Cuncic (firstname.lastname@example.org)
-Physics of neutron-unbound nuclei. Contact: Michael Thoennessen (email@example.com)
-Nuclear Astrophysics studies using beta-delayed particle and gamma emissions. Contact: Chris Wrede (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Interested individuals should send a CV and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to Prof. Remco Zegers, NSCL, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824 or e-mail to email@example.com.
