Johns Hopkins University
Department of Physics and Astronomy
Experimental Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics Postdoctoral Position
The Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a postdoctoral associate position in Experimental Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics.
The Speller/ENPA group is focusing on low-temperature searches for physics beyond the standard model, with a concentration on searches for dark matter and neutrinoless double-beta decay.
The group is led by Assistant Professor Danielle H. Speller. The group seeks a postdoctoral researcher to work on the CUORE and CUPID neutrinoless double-beta decay experiments. Specific projects and duties can be directed toward the strengths, experience, and interests of the applicant, with a concentration on detector testing, characterization, and data analysis. CUORE, the Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events, is a ton-scale bolometric detector searching for neutrinoless double-beta decay located underground at LNGS. The experiment is currently taking data, with an expected run time of 5 years, to perform a sensitive search for the 0vbb decay of 130Te. The CUPID experiment (CUORE Upgrade with Particle IDentification), is a next generation experiment designed to combine CUORE technology with the detection of scintillation light for enhanced particle discrimination and increased sensitivity. The CUPID experiment is now in advanced planning stages, and soon to be underway.
The successful applicant will have experience in data analysis, electronics, and low-temperature cryogenic techniques, including low-temperature measurements and dilution refrigeration.
The applicant will be expected to work closely with graduate and undergraduate students. It is expected that the successful applicant will take the lead in the development of local hardware and software development efforts, and includes working with other members of the group on the commissioning of a detector test facility on campus. In addition, there is potential for collaboration with other projects in the lab, including dark matter direct search experiments, based on evaluation and applicant interest.
Candidates should have a PhD in experimental nuclear or particle physics, or the equivalent, and preference will be given to candidates having hardware and data analysis experience with low-temperature calorimeters and electronics.
Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, brief statement of research, and three letters of recommendation, submitted to Interfolio, at http://apply.interfolio.com/74157.
Inquires may be sent to Professor Danielle H. Speller at email@example.com.
Review of applications will start on July 1, 2020 and will continue until position is filled. JHU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
