The Experimental Nuclear Physics Group at the University of Illinois invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics. The group is involved in both ATLAS at the LHC and sPHENIX at BNL. We have been the leading group in the construction of the sPHENIX electromagnetic calorimeter and are now working on commissioning and calibrating the detector as well as preparing for physics analysis. The group has also made major contributions to the ATLAS Heavy Ion Program, especially in jets. The Illinois group is part of a diverse department which covers many related areas of nuclear and high-energy physics and has strong local theory involvement.
The successful candidate will be expected to take a leading role in the sPHENIX and/or ATLAS experiments. The candidate should have a recent Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics before the beginning of the position. The Postdoctoral Research Associate is a full-time, benefits-eligible position appointed on a 12-month service basis.  A CV, a brief description of research experience and interests and three letters of recommendation should be sent to Prof. Anne Sickles (  Applications will be considered until the position is filled. The position will start on July 10, 2023 or after. The position is for one year initially and is renewable for additional years.
