The Experimental Nuclear Structure Group at the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the experimental low-energy nuclear physics program. The UTK group has an excellent track record in experimental nuclear structure studies of nuclei far from stability. Our group is a world leader in the field of decay spectroscopy, nucleon transfer reactions, and super heavy nuclei research. Current experimental programs are being carried out at the ISOLDE facility at CERN, Riken-Nishina RIBF, and future campaigns are being prepared at the Florida State University and the Facility for Rare Ion Beams, FRIB.
The successful candidate will lead the development and commissioning of a new sputtering source for triton beams at the John D. Fox Laboratory, FSU. Candidates should have demonstrable experience with ion sources, or other electromagnetic ion manipulation devices such as ion-traps, gas chambers, electrostatic mirrors, etc . The position is available immediately
