CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Physics and Astronomy Department has an immediate openings for a post-doctoral researcher in experimental nuclear and particle astrophysics to start immediately. The primary research focus is the MAJORANA collaboration’s efforts to search for the neutrinoless double-beta decay of 76Ge using an array of HPGe detectors where the UNC group is playing a major role. The group is also actively involved in the KATRIN tritium beta-decay neutrino mass experiment currently being constructed in Karlsruhe, Germany. To apply for this position, please follow and complete the online application at https://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/131339.
The position requires a PhD in Physics, experience in experimental nuclear, particle or astrophysics, and an established record of research excellence.

About University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Physics and Astronomy
The UNC Chapel Hill experimental nuclear and astroparticle physics (http://enapphysics.web.unc.edu/) group’s primary research activities are searching for neutrinoless double-beta decay in 76Ge as part of the MAJORANA and LEGEND Collaborations and involvement in the KATRIN tritium beta-decay neutrino mass experiment. We are also participants in the NSF PIRE-GErmanium Materials And Detectors Advancement Research Consortium (http://pire.gemadarc.org/) where we are working with GEMADARC collaborators on advanced Ge detectors. Our UNC group is an integral part of the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL) (http://www.tunl.duke.edu/), a Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Physics Center of Excellence, which provides substantial technical and scientific resources related to our activities. We are also affiliated with the Institute for Cosmology, Subatomic Matter, and Symmetries (CoSMS) (https://cosms.unc.edu/) that offers a stimulating environment for discussions on a broad range of fundamental physics and astronomy topics.
