CURRENT EMPLOYEES OR STUDENTS:

If you are a current student at Penn State and seeking employment with Penn State, please login to Workday to complete the student application process .

JOB DESCRIPTION AND POSITION REQUIREMENTS:

The Nuclear Theory Group at Penn State Berks in collaboration with the Physics Division Theory Group at Argonne National Laboratory invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The appointment will initially be for one year at Penn State Berks. In the second year the position will be at Argonne National Lab, with a possible extension for a third year at Argonne contingent on funding and performance.

The postdoc is expected to work closely with Professors Leonard Gamberg and Alexei Prokudin at Penn State Berks, and Dr. Ian Cloet at Argonne. For the first year the candidate will be located at Penn State Berks, and the second year at Argonne National Laboratory, however the candidate will have the opportunity to spend time at both locations during the postdoc position.

The group's research interests and activities are concentrated on QCD and hadron structure. This includes:

  • the application of (non-)perturbative QCD to the spatial and momentum imaging of hadrons
  • QCD factorization theorems
  • the calculation and extraction of transverse momentum dependent distributions from the experimental data
  • the implication of such studies for current and future experimental programs in nuclear physics

A strong publication record in these areas of interest is required. Candidates must have earned their PhD at the time of hire.

Application materials should include: a cover letter, CV, research statement, a publication list, and 3 letters of recommendation.

For further questions, please contact Leonard Gamberg at lpg10@psu.edu .
