Job description:

The Experimental High Energy Nuclear Physics group, Department of

Physics and Astronomy, Wayne State University, invites applications

for two postdoctoral research associate positions. Candidates should

hold a Ph.D. in high energy particle or nuclear physics and have a

strong background in the data analysis. The Wayne State group

(Professors: W. Llope, C. Pruneau, J. Putschke, and S. Voloshin) is a

member of the ALICE collaboration at LHC and the STAR Collaboration at

RHIC, as well as participate in construction and developing of the

physics program of the future sPHENIX experiment. The WSU RHI group

profits from close collaboration with the large high energy nuclear

theory group consisting of Profs. A. Majumder, S. Gavin, and

C. Shen. WSU is a leading institution in the theoretical

X-SCAPE/JETSCAPE Collaboration, as well as a member of the BEST



The successful candidate will conduct research and carry out data

analysis within the ALICE or STAR Collaboration in the areas of the group

interests (chiral and polarization phenomena, 2- and multi-particle

correlations, critical phenomena, anisotropic flow, jet structure,

tomography and energy loss).


Applications including a CV, a brief description of the

research interests, list of publications, and three recommendation

letters should be sent electronically to:

Prof. Sergei A. Voloshin, E-mail:,

or Prof. Joern Putschke, E-mail:

To ensure a full consideration, apply before May 15th, 2021.

An additional position (ALICE data analysis) might be available later in Fall of 2021.
