Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Neutrino Physics at Duke University
The position will involve work on the Super-Kamiokande and/or the T2K (Tokai
to Kamioka) long-baseline experiments, as well as participation in the
design phase for a new large detector for the Long Baseline Neutrino
Experiment in the United States.
In Japan, the Duke HEP neutrino group’s activities are centered around the
Super-Kamiokande detector for both non-accelerator physics and long baseline
oscillation physics with the T2K experiment. Our current work is focused on
precision oscillation measurement and model comparisons, along with the
search for electron neutrino appearance and the measurement of the last
unknown neutrino mixing angle.
Looking towards the future, the postdoc will leverage the knowledge gained
from the current generation of experiments for the optimization of the next
generation of massive water Cherenkov detectors. The goal is to design a
detector which will allow unprecedented studies of proton decay and
supernova bursts, along with the study of CP violation and matter effects in
the neutrino sector via the use of powerful new neutrino beams.
Experience with detector simulations, object-oriented software, event
reconstruction and data analysis will be particularly advantageous. This
position will be based at Duke University with frequent travel expected to
Japan and to locations in the United States.
Duke University is a Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and
particularly encourages women and minorities to apply. Review of
applications will begin immediately.
