Job Description
The Nuclear Theory Group at Ohio University anticipates hiring a post-doctoral research associate to take up a position starting in the Fall of 2021. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics (or anticipate having a Ph.D. in hand by September 2021). The research interests of the group cover a broad range of topics. These include nuclear and electromagnetic reactions in light systems, as well as, reactions involving nuclei near the neutron- and proton-drip lines with particular emphasis on halo nuclei and direct reactions. Research topics in nuclear astrophysics include core-collapse supernovae, the structure and evolution of young and old neutron stars, binary mergers of compact objects, and the interpretation of signals from multi-messenger astronomy. We attack these problems using a variety of forefront techniques including effective field theory, Faddeev techniques, Bayesian uncertainty quantification, and many-body theory at zero and finite-temperature. Preference will be given to expertise in nuclear astrophysics, but we expect the successful candidate to contribute to the efforts of the group as a whole. Thus applicants should have a strong research record and display significant initiative to complement their research skills. The appointment will initially be for one year. Renewal for a second year is highly probable, but is contingent on funding and job performance.

Minimum Qualifications
PhD in physics (or anticipated by September 2021, or by negotiated start date); demonstrated research productivity.

Preferred Qualifications
PhD in Theoretical Nuclear Physics

Department Physics and Astronomy
Pay Rate
Salary will be commensurate with education and experience. Employees also enjoy a generous benefits package which includes health benefits, paid time off, retirement contributions, and education benefits for both the employee and their eligible dependents.
