The Nuclear Physics Group is seeking 2 Postdoctoral Research Associates to support its research programme exploring nuclear structure at the extremes of spin and isospin. One post will focus primarily on gamma-ray spectroscopy exploiting AGATA at Legnaro, while the second will mainly investigate ground-state properties of exotic nuclei in experiments using advanced laser and decay spectroscopy techniques at facilities including Jyväskylä, ISOLDE, GSI/FAIR and TRIUMF. You will play a leading role in setting up and running experiments, and analysing and interpreting the data. Your role will include leadership of future experiments by preparing new proposals, driving developments of experimental techniques and helping to supervise postgraduate students. You will also be expected to present the results of your work at collaboration meetings and international conferences. A willingness to travel and the ability to communicate effectively within large multinational collaborations are essential.
You should have a relevant Ph.D. with experience using laser spectroscopy systems and/or semiconductor detectors for spectroscopic radiation measurements and analysis and/or simulation codes relevant to nuclear structure physics experiments. The tenure of the posts is until 30th September 2024.
The post is available, on a fixed term basis, until 30th September 2024.
Any applicants who are still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30. Upon written confirmation that they have been successful in being awarded their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7 spine point 31 from the date of their award.
