Job Opportunities

Postdoctoral Associate


The Center for Neutrino Physics at Virginia Tech invites applications for one postdoctoral associate position. The Virginia Tech group is involved in the study of neutrino interactions with matter and their effects on the determination of neutrino oscillation parameters. The successful candidate will work primarily on developing and testing nuclear models for neutrino interactions using neutrino and electron scattering data on argon. The candidate will work on the preparation of an electron scattering experiment on Argon/Titanium at Jefferson Lab including data taking and analysis. The successful candidate will be involved in neutrino interaction measurements using the MicroBooNE detector. Work will also involve collaborating with leading theorists in the field in developing and validating nuclear models for neutrino interaction Monte Carlo generators. Duties may also include supervising and coordinating the work of other researchers and personnel, especially graduate and undergraduate students, and development of future efforts such as the DUNE experiment. The successful candidate will be based in Blacksburg, VA but will be required to spend some period of time in Fermilab, Chicago and Jefferson Lab, VA.

Applicants should complete the faculty application online at www.jobs.vt.edu posting SR0160037 and attach a letter of application addressing the applicant's qualifications for this position; current curriculum vitae; and the names of three references. Also please arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent directly to Dr. Camillo Mariani at mariani@vt.edu or mail to the Virginia Tech Physics Department; 315A Robeson Hall; M/C 0435; 850 West Campus Dr., Blacksburg, VA 24061.
