Postdoctoral Appointee in Medium Energy Nuclear Physics, (Ref. # 21011-14)

The IU experimental nuclear physics group has an active and diverse program, addressing fundamental questions in nuclear and particle physics. Group members are in lead roles in a wide range of experiments, including investigations of the flavor and spin structure of the nucleon using the STAR detector at RHIC, studies of parity violation between nucleons at NIST and SNS, neutrino measurements at Fermilab and WIPP, neutron decay at NIST and LANSCE, and searches for electric dipole moments. Local facilities include a 200 MeV light ion cyclotron and a low energy neutron source, which can be used for detector development and testing. The laboratory also provides excellent personnel infrastructure, allowing strong participation in major off-site projects. Opportunities are available on all major research projects.

Initial appointments as a postdoctoral research associate will be for one year, with possible renewal for up to two additional years. A Ph.D. in experimental subatomic physics is required. Applications for postdoctoral positions are accepted on a continuing basis, and starting dates can be adjusted to suit the situation of the candidates. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Dr. Rex Tayloe ( for additional information.

Postdoctoral Candidate for NTC (OAA# 21209-19)

The Nuclear Theory Group at Indiana University is seeking to fill several postdoctoral research associate positions in theoretical nuclear physics, hadronic physics and QCD, or astrophysics. The Nuclear Theory Group consists of four faculty members, two postdoctoral associates and several graduate students. Current main research directions include: hadronic physics, QCD, amplitude analysis, heavy ion physics, and dense matter in nuclear astrophysics. These efforts are headquartered within the Indiana University Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter. See more information at: .

The nuclear astrophysics research focuses on dense matter and how this is probed with photons, gravitational waves, and neutrinos (see ). The research also includes related laboratory experiments on neutron-rich matter such as the Lead Radius Experiment (PREX) and large-scale molecular dynamics simulations of neutron star crust material. Finally there is the opportunity to perform large-scale density functional calculations of nuclear pasta and neutron star crust material as part of the NUCLEI nuclear structure collaboration.

The amplitude analysis in hadron spectroscopy links experimental data on hadron production through analysis of analytical properties to QCD and effective theories with the goal of extracting and interpreting resonance parameters. This effort provides theoretical support for current and future experiments including BESIII, COMPASS and Jefferson Lab.

The quark-nuclear physics research investigates the quark/gluon structure of nucleons and nuclei, and also
