The Florida State University Physics Department invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor position in experimental nuclear physics, with a focus of nuclear astrophysics and/or the physics of exotic nuclei. Compensation and any tenure earning credit will depend on the qualifications of the applicant. The position provides excellent opportunities to pursue original research at the John D. Fox accelerator laboratory and national facilities, leading up to the FRIB laboratory.
The experimental nuclear physics group is operating an accelerator laboratory with a 9 MV tandem Van De Graaff and a 9 MV superconducting LINAC booster. The focus of the scientific program is the RESOLUT in-flight exotic beam facility, which supports research in nuclear astrophysics and the physics of exotic nuclei. The ANASEN active-target detector and the RESONEUT detector array provide world-class scientific opportunities. Additional instrumentation includes a gamma detector array with digital electronics, scattering chambers, neutron TOF detectors, and the flexibility to bring other detection apparatus.
Applicants are expected to develop an original research program centered at the local facility, with a perspective for research at national facilities and the planned FRIB laboratory.
