Argonne Theory Group: Postdoctoral Position

Position Description

The Theory Group in the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory has a broad-ranging programme in modern hadron and nuclear physics. The Group's research places strong emphasis on comparison with data from existing facilities, e.g. ATLAS at Argonne, FermiLab, JLab and RHIC; and on planning for and anticipating the output of future facilities; such as FRIB and an EIC. The Group is now seeking exceptional candidates for a postdoctoral position that might, contingent upon funding, begin in October 2017.

Information on our group and its research activities can be found at our home page. We urge those interested in this position to examine and consider seriously the information provided on these pages. The successful applicant will have research interests that complement ours.
