Radboud University and Nikhef
Electronics Design Engineer
You will support scientific staff, postdoctoral researchers and students in their research by means of advice, concrete design proposals, firmware and driver implementations for existing hardware, and new hardware designs. You will also, and in particular, be concerned with the integration of functionalities of different pieces of electronics. You will work in a team of engineers with complementary competences in analogue and digital electronics design, and in the production of (complex) electronics boards.

Colorado State University
Prof. Wilson’s High-Energy Physics group in the Department of Physics at Colorado State University seeks applications for a postdoctoral research associate position in experimental neutrino physics. The position initially will focus on studies of the use of novel photon detectors in the Horizontal Drift and Vertical Drift modules for Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) followed by operation and analysis of data collected by the Fermilab Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program, with an emphasis on the ICARUS detector. The successful candidate is expected to be based at Fermi National Accelerator Center in Batavia, Illinois. There may be opportunities to spend time at CERN (Switzerland) to work on ProtoDUNE 2.

Carnegie Mellon University
The experimental neutrino physics group at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position, to begin in Summer or Fall 2021. Our research program includes work on the KATRIN neutrino-mass experiment and the COHERENT neutrino-scattering experiment. The successful applicant will be expected to make significant contributions to a new heavy-water Cherenkov detector to benchmark the flux of neutrinos for the COHERENT experiment, and to data-taking and analysis for KATRIN. In addition to their own research work, the successful applicant will work with and guide graduate and undergraduate students working on both experiments. The position is expected to be based primarily in Pittsburgh, with travel to the experimental sites in Oak Ridge, Tennessee (COHERENT) and Karlsruhe, Germany (KATRIN). Other research activities in the department include rich programs in cosmology, medium- and high-energy physics, and artificial intelligence.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, IAIFI
The goal of the IAIFI is to develop and deploy the next generation of AI technologies, based on the transformative idea that artificial intelligence can directly incorporate physics intelligence. IAIFI researchers will use these new AI technologies to tackle some of the most challenging problems in physics, from precision calculations of the structure of matter, to gravitational wave detection of merging black holes, to the extraction of new physical laws from noisy data. IAIFI researchers will also transfer these technologies to the broader AI community, since trustworthy AI is as important for physics discovery as it is for other applications of AI in society. To cultivate human intelligence, the IAIFI will promote training, education, and outreach at the intersection of physics and AI. In this way, the IAIFI will advance physics knowledge – from the smallest building blocks of nature to the largest structures in the Universe – and galvanize AI research innovation.

Brookhaven National Lab
The Instrumentation Division has an opening for a postdoctoral research associate to work on advanced detector development for high-energy physics experimental applications. Instrumentation, working closely with the BNL physics department, is developing key detector technology for several noble-liquid detector experiments. On the DUNE long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, Instrumentation has major roles in the single phase TPC readout “cold electronics” and the charge readout plane detector design and construction, both of which must operate in cryogenic liquid with extremely high reliability over a long operational lifetime. On the proposed nEXO neutrinoless double-beta decay experiment, Instrumentation has major roles in the SiPM-based photon detector and associated readout system and in developing novel interconnects that function at cryogenic temperatures with ultra-low radioactivity.

We expect multiple tenure-track hires in the next few years. It is too early to know exactly the subfields we will search for, but certainly will include someone whose research has a strong theory component. There are potential candidates within and near to DUNE whom you know would propose a research program that would have a high impact on different facets of DUNE. Please reach out to them about this opportunity. Our department culture is to combine excellent teaching with undergraduate and M.S. level research and is similar to a better liberal arts school. Our approach to teaching introductory and core courses is collaborative and we are early adopters of active-learning and other high-impact methods.
