Postdoctoral Research Associate
The Department of Physics at Princeton University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior position at the interface between experimental high-energy physics and biophysics. The goal is to develop a technology that uses positron emission tomography (PET) for biophysical applications, mainly labeling and tracking of living biological materials. The successful candidate will be expected to play a leading role in the design, construction, and testing of a PET-based tracking device. Experience in detector hardware, cryogenics, electronics, and/or data acquisition techniques is highly desirable, as are excellent programming skills. The successful candidate will have a strong research record and must have a Ph.D. prior to the start of the appointment. Appointments are typically for one year with the possibility of renewal. The project would be suitable for candidates that wish to crossover from high-energy detector physics to biophysics, but also for candidates who seek a continued career in detector physics. Questions about this position can be addressed to Prof. Thomas Gregor ([email protected]) and/or Prof. Daniel Marlow ([email protected]). Applicants must apply online and submit a recent CV, publications list, a research statement and contact information for three referees, who will be asked to provide letters of support. Consideration of the applications will begin on March 13, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
