PostDoctoral Associate

Job description

The University of Colorado high energy physics group is seeking a postdoctoral research associate in experimental neutrino physics. The group currently has wide-ranging roles in the T2K, NA61/SHINE, and LBNF/DUNE collaborations. On T2K, we work on cross-section physics in the near detector, beam hardware and monitoring, and the far detector (Super-Kamiokande) analysis. We have leading roles in the NA61 tracking hardware and analysis, and in beam monitoring R&D for LBNF/DUNE; we are also increasing our effort on the DUNE near detector. It is anticipated the successful candidate for this position will work on T2K and LBNF/DUNE. The candidate will be expected to play a leading role in experiment development, operations and physics analysis. The Colorado neutrino group places a strong emphasis on career development and provides opportunities for leadership and for mentoring.

This position will be based in Boulder, with travel to Japan and Fermilab necessary. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in particle physics or a closely related field. Review of applications will begin on March 23 and will continue until the position is filled.

For inquiries about this position, please contact Profs. Alysia Marino ([email protected]) or Eric D. Zimmerman ([email protected]).
