Post-Doctoral Position in Nuclear Theory

External Positions

The Nuclear Theory Group at Ohio University anticipates hiring a post-doctoral research associate to take up a position starting in the Fall of 2023. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics or expect to have a Ph.D. in hand by September 2023. The research interests of the group include nuclear forces, nuclear and electromagnetic reactions in few-nucleon systems, connecting ab-initio structure calculations with few-body descriptions of reactions in light and medium mass-nuclei, and halo systems near the neutron and proton driplines.

We attack these problems using a variety of forefront methods including effective field theory, Bayesian uncertainty quantification, and Faddeev & multiple-scattering techniques. We expect the successful candidate to contribute to these efforts. Thus applicants should have a strong research record and display significant initiative to complement their research skills. The appointment will initially be for one year. Renewal for a second year is highly probable, but is contingent on funding and job performance.

Interested candidates are requested to submit a curriculum vitae, and a statement of research interests which should include a complete list of publications to: []
