Postdoctoral Research Associate and/or Research Assistant Professor Position (All aspects of nuclear theory)
The Department of Energy's Institute for Nuclear Theory, on the University of Washington campus, invites applications for one or more postdoctoral positions starting Fall 2014; the position may be either as Research Associate or Fellow. The INT Fellow position may be available in the case of an exceptionally qualified individual. Successful Research Associate and Fellow candidates also hold appointments within the Physics Department, with which the INT is affiliated. The INT Fellow position carries the rank of Research Assistant Professor in the Physics Department. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. These positions are full-time and are not tenure eligible. Applicants for these positions must have a Ph.D. degree, or foreign equivalent, and a strong record of published research in nuclear theory, broadly defined. The INT's local research interests include QCD, lattice gauge theory, many-body theory, nuclear astrophysics, effective field theory, weak interactions and symmetries, relativistic heavy ion physics, and nuclear structure. Opportunities are available for teaching and graduate student supervision. The Institute hosts approximately 450 visiting scientists each year, representing all areas of nuclear physics as well as its intersections with neighboring subfields. Please apply electronically for either position, using the link. Applications received by December 2, 2013, will receive full consideration. The University of Washington is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. The University is building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and covered veterans.
Postdoctoral Research Associate Position (Nuclear Astrophysics only)
The Institute for Nuclear Theory (INT) at the University of Washington anticipates having a full-time postdoctoral Research Associate position in nuclear astrophysics to begin in Fall 2013, subject to funding. The appointment would be for two years. Extension to a third year may be possible. The Research Associate will also hold an appointment within the Physics Department, with which the INT is affiliated. We are seeking applicants with a strong background in theoretical nuclear physics and an interest in nuclear many-body theory and its application to extreme environments encountered in astrophysics. The successful candidate will be part of an NSF-funded multi-institutional collaboration including Caltech, Cornell, and Syracuse to model emission of gravitational waves from neutron star mergers and supernova. Applicants for this position must have a Ph.D. degree in Physics. Only online applications for this position are accepted; please apply electronically using the link. Applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, and a list of publications; three letters of recommendation should be uploaded separately by the recommenders. Complete applications received by September 15, 2013 will receive full consideration. The University of Washington is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. The University is building a culturally diverse faculty and staff and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and covered veterans. The University of Washington, a recipient of the 2006 Alfred P. Sloan award for Faculty Career Flexibility, is committed to supporting the work-life balance of its faculty.
