 The Experimental Nuclear Structure Group at the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the experimental low-energy nuclear physics program. The UTK group has demonstrated an excellent track record in experimental nuclear structure studies of nuclei far from stability. Our group is a world leader in the field of decay neutron spectroscopy, as demonstrated by the construction and deployment of the VANDLE time-of-flight array. Current experimental programs are being carried out at the ISOLDE facility at CERN, Riken-Nishina center RIBF, and the NSCL facility in MSU.
The successful candidate will lead the delayed-neutron spectroscopy efforts for standard and laser-polarized radioactive-ion beams. Candidates should have demonstrable experience with experiments at accelerator facilities, as well as good skills in programming and data analysis.
The position is available immediately.
