Postdoctoral Position in Nuclear Theory at BNL

The Nuclear Theory Group at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is soliciting applications for a postdoctoral Research Associate. The appointment is expected to begin October 1, 2013 for a period of two years.

While the group has broad interests in all areas of theoretical nuclear physics, it has a strong focus in the areas of QCD at high energies, temperatures and densities, perturbative QCD and spin physics, phenomenology in support of the experimental programs at RHIC and the LHC, and research in anticipation of future scientific directions that will be feasible with the RHIC II, EIC and FAIR projects. A Ph.D. in nuclear or particle physics is required. Applications received before December 15, 2012, are guaranteed full consideration. The application for the position should be submitted to

BNL's job opportunity website, Job Id #16242

After electronic submission of their application, prospective candidates should arrange to have three letters or recommendation sent by e-mail to our secretary, Marcy Chaloupka, to (preferred) or regular mail to:
