Open postdoctoral position, faculty mentor Sergei A. Voloshin


The Experimental Relativistic Heavy-Ion (RHI) group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Wayne State University invites applications for up to two postdoctoral research associate positions. The Wayne State group is a member of the ALICE experiment at the LHC and the STAR experiment at RHIC and participates in the development of the physics program, and hardware construction, for the upcoming sPHENIX experiment. The WSU experimental RHI group benefits from close collaboration with a local high energy nuclear theory group. Wayne State is the leading institution in the JETSCAPE theory collaboration and an active member of the BEST Collaboration. The successful candidate(s) will conduct research and analyze the ALICE or STAR data in a direction aligned with the group's interests, which include chiral and polarization phenomena, two- and multi-particle correlations, critical phenomena, anisotropic flow, femtoscopy, jet structure, and jet tomography.

Required qualifications

Ph.D. in high energy particle or nuclear physics and have a strong background in data analysis.

Required application materials

C.V., a brief description of the research interests, list of publications, and three recommendation letters should be sent electronically to Dr. Sergei A. Voloshin,
