Employment Opportunities at CEEM

Research Scientist, Physics (OAA# 21711-13)

The Center for Exploration of Energy and Matter(CEEM) at Indiana University, Bloomington, invites applications for a non-tenure track research scientist position in experimental nuclear physics. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. and have demonstrated excellence in research. IU Bloomington researchers play leadership roles in neutrino scattering (COHERENT), QCD spin physics (STAR), and searches for BSM physics in precision measurements, mainly using low energy neutrons. The applicant would be expected to contribute to one or more of these ongoing research projects. Noteworthy local resources at IU to support this work include excellent computing facilities and the extensive infrastructure of the IU Center for the Exploration of Energy and Matter (CEEM). Questions reagrding the position may be addressed to Prof. Mike Snow (wsnow@indiana.edu).

Please send the application package including a cover letter, a full CV with publication record, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation through the website: https://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/4993. Applications which arrive before June 15, 2018 will receive full consideration.

Indiana University is an equal employment and affirmative action employer and a provider of ADA services. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, ethnicity, color, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or identity, marital status, national origin, disability status or protected veteran status. Indiana University does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities, including employment and admission, as required by Title IX.



Post-Doctoral Associate in Fundamental Neutron Physics (OAA# 21609-09)

A postdoc position is available in the fundamental neutron physics group at Indiana University. Members of this group (Chen-Yu Liu, Josh Long, and Mike Snow) are active in a broad set of experiments using low energy neutrons which address exciting questions in nuclear/particle/astrophysics/cosmology. Experiments in progress include, but are not limited to, two experiments (UCNtau, BL2) to measure the neutron lifetime, measurements (NSR) of slow neutron spin rotation to measure the neutron-nucleon weak interaction and to search for possible exotic neutron interactions, R&D work for the nEDM experiment which will search for the neutron electric dipole moment, and various tests of short-range gravity using neutron interferometry. The successful candidate would be able to contribute to one or more of these experimental efforts and would be expected to spend a significant fraction of their time at national labs such as NIST and LANL.

Initial appointments as a postdoctoral research associate will be for one year, with possible renewal for up to two additional years. The minimum requirement of this position is a PhD in Physics. A Ph.D. in any area of experimental physics involving precision measurement is fine, and experience in low temperature physics is a plus. We will review all applications until the position is filled. Interested candidates should review the application requirements and submit their application at: https://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/2692. Questions regarding the position can be sent to: Prof. Chen-Yu Liu (cl21@indiana.edu), Prof. Josh Long (jcl@indiana.edu) or Prof. Mike Snow (wsnow@indiana.edu).

Post-Doctoral Position in Medium Energy Nuclear Physics (OAA# 21506-13)

The IU experimental nuclear physics group has an active and diverse  program addressing fundamental questions in nuclear physics, particle  physics, and astrophysics/cosmology. Group members are leaders in a wide  range of experiments, including: investigations of the flavor and spin  structure of the nucleon using the STAR detector at RHIC and Belle at  KEK; studies of parity and time reversal violation between nucleons at  NIST and SNS, measurements of neutrino properties at Fermilab, SNS, and  WIPP, neutron decay and neutron interferometry at NIST and LANSCE, and  searches for electric dipole moments and possible exotic spin-dependent  interactions. The group is a part of the Center for the Exploration of  Energy and Matter (CEEM) at IU which includes research in condensed  matter, accelerator, and theoretical physics. Group members include  several undergraduate and graduate students and professional staff in  electronics, mechanical engineering, and cryogenic design. Local  facilities include a low-energy neutron source (LENS) available for  neutron detector development and testing, a polarized 3He lab, a  dilution refrigerator and helium reliquifier, and an isolated lab for  weak force measurement. The laboratory possesses infrastructure on a  scale which enables us to make major hardware contributions to  experiments. Opportunities are available on all major research projects.

 A Ph.D. in experimental subatomic physics or precision measurement is  required. Initial appointments as a postdoctoral research associate will be for  one year, with possible renewal for up to two additional years. 

Applications, including a curriculum vita and three letters of  reference, should be submitted through the application portal located at  http://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/1627. Questions regarding the  position or application process can be directed to Prof. Rex Tayloe  (rtayloe@indiana.edu).
