Argonne Theory Group: Postdoctoral Positions

Position Description

The Theory Group in the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory is now seeking exceptional candidates for a postdoctoral position in nuclear theory -- broadly defined -- that would begin in Fall 2019. The position is for two years, with the possibility of one additional year contingent upon funding and performance. Applications received on or before 26 November 2018 will receive full consideration.

The Theory Group has four staff members [Ian Cloët, Alessandro Lovato, Craig Roberts, and Robert Wiringa], as well as several postdocs and students. The Group has a broad-ranging research program in (non-perturbative) QCD and nuclear structure/reactions, with particular interests that include: ab initio approaches to nuclear structure, neutrino interactions with nuclei, quark and gluon tomography of hadrons and nuclei, hadronization, and emergent phenomena in QCD. The Group is also developing a program in quantum information science with applications to nuclear physics (e.g. entanglement in high-energy collisions and quantum computing), and has access to extensive National and Laboratory computational resources.
