The Neutrino Physics group at the University of California, Berkeley invites
applications for two postdoctoral researcher positions, to work on the SNO+ and
CUORE neutrinoless double-beta decay experiments.
CUORE is a large bolometric experiment under construction at Gran Sasso
National Lab in Italy. The Berkeley group is actively involved in the detector
construction, development of online and offline software, and detector R&D for the
next-generation ton-scale detector. CUORE is expected to start data taking in
Spring 2015. A successful candidate is expected to take a leading role in the
detector commissioning, data analysis, and detector R&D efforts. Significant
presence at the experimental site in Gran Sasso, Italy, is expected. For further
information, please contact Prof. Yury Kolomensky (firstname.lastname@example.org).
SNO+ is a large-scale liquid scintillator experiment with a broad neutrino program,
located in SNOLAB, Canada. We expect to start taking physics data in late 2014.
The Berkeley group focuses on detector commissioning, operations, and
calibrations as well as simulations and analysis. The successful candidate should
expect to take a lead role in detector operations and analysis, as well as R&D for
future phases. Extended travel to the experimental site may be required. The
group also has an involvement in the DEAP/CLEAN dark matter program. Please
contact Prof. Gabriel D. Orebi Gann (email@example.com) with any questions.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in nuclear or particle physics or equivalent. The
initial appointments will be made for two years, with the possibility for renewal.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are
Applications, including a CV, a list of publications, a brief statement of research
interests and experience, and three letters of reference, should be sent to:
Professor Gabriel D. Orebi Gann, firstname.lastname@example.org
Professor Yury G. Kolomensky, email@example.com
Please make clear in your research statement whether you are interested in one
or both of these opportunities.
