Graduate Fellowship Description
The particle astrophysics group at Alberta (see http://pd-srv-cpp-01.physics.ualberta.ca/cpp/) has an opening for one postdoctoral researcher. The successful candidate will join our activities at SNOLAB involved in dark matter searches with the PICASSO and PICO experiments. The PICO experiment is the result of the merger of the PICASSO and COUPP collaborations. PICO will build and operate a large-scale, super-heated dark matter detector at SNOLAB. The duties of this position will include designing, modelling, building, testing and commissioning ultra-low-background detectors, as well as developing software for Monte Carlo simulations and data analysis. The position will be based at the University of Alberta and may involve travel to the SNOLAB facility in Sudbury (see http://www.snolab.ca). Experience in the field of direct dark matter searches is an asset. For field work, a drivers license is highly desirable.
The successful candidate will have a recent PhD in experimental particle astrophysics, nuclear or particle physics, or in a closely related field. The original appointment will be for two years, up to three years in special circumstances, subject to funding. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applicants should include a detailed CV, a brief statement of research interests, and arrange to have at least three letters of reference forwarded to:
Prof. Carsten B. Krauss ([email protected])
Centre for Particle Physics
Department of Physics
University of Alberta
Edmonton Alberta CANADA
The review of applications will begin on October 15th, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. We thank all applicants for their time and effort but only those selected for an interview will be contacted. Applicants may be considered for future vacancies.
The University of Alberta hires on the basis of merit. We are committed to the principle of equity in employment. We welcome diversity and encourage applications from all qualified women and men, including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons.
