The Department of Energy's Institute for Nuclear Theory, on the University of Washington campus, invites applications for one or more postdoctoral Research Associate positions starting Fall 2019.
Research Associates also hold appointments within the Physics Department, with which the INT is affiliated. These are full-time, 12-month positions; they are for two years, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. The INT's local research interests include QCD, lattice gauge theory, quantum computing, many-body theory, nuclear astrophysics, effective field theory, weak interactions and symmetries, relativistic heavy ion physics, high energy nuclear physics, and nuclear structure. The Institute hosts approximately 450 visiting scientists each year, representing all areas of nuclear physics as well as its intersections with neighboring subfields.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) and a strong record of published research in nuclear theory, broadly defined. The degree must be awarded no more than 4 years prior to the appointment start date. The Research Associate appointment may be held only within 6 years after receipt of the terminal degree.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of future research interests, and three letters of reference. Applications received by November 30, 2018, will receive full consideration. Inquiries should be directed to Professor Sanjay Reddy: email@example.com .
