The Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate position with its effort on Fermilab E989, the Muon g-2 experiment.
The Cornell group plays significant roles in the development of both the detector and the muon storage ring beam instrumentation. Hardware responsibilities range from for development of a new, fast injection kicker, which is required to store the muon beam, to the development of the electromagnetic calorimeter electronics for detecting decay electrons. The Cornell group also plays a leading role in a broad range of simulation and analysis efforts covering muon beam dynamics, detector performance, and the spin precession analysis. The successful applicant will assume key responsibilities in the electronics design and construction projects, as well as in the development of reconstruction and analysis techniques for the determination of g-2, and in the commissioning / analysis activities of the experiment.
Applicants must have a PhD in experimental high energy, nuclear or accelerator physics. Applications should be submitted at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/3676 and should include a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation.
