Dear colleagues:

Greetings, and my apologies for the impersonal email.

I am writing to bring to your attention to a posting for a postdoctoral =
research position in my group.

Best regards, Krishna

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position with the =
Experimental Nuclear Physics Group at the University of Massachusetts, =
Amherst. The primary responsibility of the successful candidate will be =
to participate in the development of the program of parity-violating =
electron scattering experiments planned in Hall A at Jefferson =
Laboratory after the energy upgrade, namely the PREX-II, MOLLER, SOLID =
and CREX projects. These experiments will search for physics beyond the =
Standard Model at the TeV-scale, measure the neutron distribution inside =
nuclei, and probe novel aspects of the QCD structure of the nucleon. =
More details on the projects can be found at =
http://people.umass.edu/kkumar/pves.html .

The position is for one year initially, with the possibility of renewal =
for up to three years upon mutual agreement and availability of funds. =
The successful candidate will have the flexibility to reside either at =
UMass or at Jefferson Laboratory and will have the opportunity to =
participate in other ongoing nuclear physics research. Applicants must =
have a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Prior =
experience with both software and hardware development in =
accelerator-based or underground-based experiments is desirable. Work =
related travel may be undertaken. =20

Applicants should send a CV, a description of research interests, and =
arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Prof. =
Krishna S. Kumar, Department of Physics, University of Massachusetts, =
Amherst, MA 01003 or by email to kkumar@physics.umass.edu. Review of =
applications will begin August 9, 2013. The nominal start date is =
September 1, 2013. The position will remain open until filled.

The Physics Department is committed in its efforts to hire candidates =
who will enhance the diversity and gender balance its faculty, staff and =
students. We strongly encourage women and members of minority groups to =
apply. The University of Massachusetts is an Affirmative Action/Equal =
Opportunity Employer=
