Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental High Energy Nuclear Physics (ALICE experiment at CERN). University of Kansas – Lawrence, KS, USA

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate position in experimental high energy nuclear physics with the University of Kansas beginning as early as July 1, 2021. Postdoctoral researcher candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in physics by date of appointment and research experience in experimental particle or nuclear physics or a related experimental field. Some accommodations can be made for PhD candidates that will do their dissertation thesis after the start of the appointment. The person would work with the University of Kansas group on physics data analysis and detector operation and development for the ALICE experiment. Candidates with relevant interests and experience are sought.

The University of Kansas ALICE group is pursuing a broad and exciting research program, with elements including detector development and operation for the ALICE experiment. The group’s analysis efforts have a particular focus on studies of the initial stage of protons and ions via photon-induced physics processes, ultra-peripheral heavy-ion collisions. The group is also participating in R and D projects for the ALICE experiment and the Electron-Ion Collider project. The post-doctoral researcher would be expected to participate in many of these activities, taking a leadership role in advancing the group’s research program, interacting with and mentoring students, and engaging in creative and independent thought. The person may be stationed at CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland or at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.
