Job Posting: Post-Doctoral Fellow (Particle Physics)

 

The particle physics group at Drexel University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in experimental astroparticle physics. The successful candidate will take part in analyzing data from the completed IceCube neutrino observatory at the geographic South Pole. The IceCube observatory was built to observe neutrinos form astrophysical sources, and has recently discovered a diffuse flux of astrophysical neutrinos at high energies. The Drexel group will focus on spatially resolving the sources of astrophysical neutrinos.

The successful candidate will have a research background in astroparticle physics or related fields, experience in data processing and analysis, and are comfortable with applying statistical methods to analyze large data sets. Proficiency in modern computer languages is highly desirable. Work related travel within North America and Europe will be required.

Qualifications: PhD in physics or related fields. Experience in particle physics or astrophysics research. Experience in data analysis.

Essential Functions: Analysis of IceCube data to look for astrophysical sources Mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students.

Supplemental Posting Information:The position is for one year initially, renewable up to three years. This position is supported fully or partially by external funding and continuation of the position is contingent on receipt of those external funds.

A PhD in physics or related fields is required. Doctoral candidates should indicate the expected date of completion of all degree requirements. Applications should contain a CV and a brief description of research interests. Three letters of recommendation should be sent directly to Naoko Kurahashi Neilson, naoko@drexel.edu. The nominal start date is 2/1/2015. Review of applications will begin immediately.
