Postdoctoral Associate (Hadronics)

LABORATORY FOR NUCLEAR SCIENCE
MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Posted: 09/14/12
Job number: MIT-00009052

The Laboratory for Nuclear Science at MIT invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position to work on the GlueX experiment at Jefferson Lab. The main goal of GlueX is to understand the nature of confinement in QCD by mapping the spectrum of mesons in which the gluonic field binding the quarks is in an excited state. The successful candidate will play a major role in designing and building a Cherenkov-based particle ID system for GlueX. The inclusion of such a system will greatly expand the physics potential of the experiment. The candidate will also have the opportunity to analyze data once the experiment begins to take data.

A Ph.D. in experimental physics with experience in hardware is required. Please send a Curriculum Vitae, publication list, and three letters of recommendation to:
