The particle physics group at the University of Alabama invites applications for a postdoctoral position to work on the LZ project. The UA group is involved in AmLi calibrations (source fabrication, deployment, analysis and simulations), online and offline software (event building, event reconstruction and particle identification), and plans to contribute significantly to the upcoming operations of the detector and data analysis. We are looking for active, self-motivated researchers, interested in dark matter physics, with a background in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Experience in detector operation and development, data analysis (ROOT/Gaudi), and Monte Carlo simulations (Geant4) would be advantageous. Applications by entry level and more experienced candidates will be considered. Candidates need to have a Ph.D. in physics at the time of appointment. Ph.D. candidates should indicate when they are expecting to fulfill their Ph.D. requirements. The appointment is initially for one year with the possibility of renewal for up to three years. Apply online at https://staffjobs.ua.edu/en-us/job/511810/postdocvisiting-scientist-physics-lz-project-amlicalibrations-511810. The application should include a cover letter (addressing how you meet the job requirements), a statement of purpose (explaining your scientific goals and how working on LZ would help you achieve them), and a current C.V. The CV needs to contain the following categories: educational background, degree dates, GPA, experience, invited presentations, publications. Please have at least two letters of reference sent directly to: Dr. Ion Stancu, email@example.com. The cover letter needs to indicate LZ in the subject line. The position is expected to start January 1, 2021, but an earlier or later start date is negotiable. A fixed contribution to the moving expenses will be paid. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The University of Alabama is an equal-opportunity employer (EOE), including an EOE of protected vets and individuals with disabilities.
