Assistant Scientist - Neutrino Physics

 The Electronic Detector Group (EDG) in the Physics Department at BNL has great strength in the study of the physics of flavor and an extensive history in kaon, muon and neutrino experiments and recent research in heavy flavor physics with the Belle II experiment. EDG physicists have major responsibilities in several neutrino experiments: the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) and its prototype (ProtoDUNE), the short-baseline neutrino program (SBN includes MicroBooNE, SBND, and ICARUS), Daya Bay and PROSPECT. The EDG currently has twenty-five physicists at various career levels and a long history of research in fundamental particle physics. In collaboration with the Instrumentation Division, the group performs research and development in electronics and detector design for liquid-argon TPCs (LArTPC). In collaboration with the BNL Chemistry Department, the group performs research and development on water-based liquid scintillator and reactor neutrino experiments.
 
Brookhaven National Laboratory is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Located on the center of Long Island, New York, Brookhaven Lab brings world-class facilities and expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science—from the birth of our universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. We operate cutting-edge large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Our award-winning history, including seven Nobel Prizes, stretches back to 1947, and we continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven is operated and managed by Brookhaven Science Associates, which was founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.

The Physics Department has an opening for an Assistant Scientist. The candidate will be expected to take a leading role in activities of the group including the design, analysis and development of DUNE, operation and analysis of SBN and opportunities to participate in the running and analysis of Daya Bay or PROSPECT or other flavor physics research.  This position would be under the direction of Dr. Steve Kettell. This is a tenure-track appointment with an initial term of two years.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

• Lead design, analysis and development of particle physics experiments and publish research
• Design, construction, operation and analysis of neutrino experiments

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
• PhD in experimental particle or nuclear physics
• Significant record of recent accomplishments in experimental physics
• Extensive experience in data analysis, detector simulation or detector development for particle physics experiments
• Demonstrated ability to perform research independently and as part of a research group
• Proficiency with common high energy physics analysis tools
• Excellent written and oral communication skills

Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
• Minimum of three years of postdoctoral experience
• Experience in instrumentation and development of scientific detector systems
• Experience with particle physics detectors, digital signal processing, detector simulation, event reconstruction and analysis of the data
• Experience with high energy physics analysis tools such as ROOT, Geant4, and Python
• Experience with assembly, commissioning and analysis of neutrino experiments
• Ability to collaborate with and mentor postdocs and summer students
• Solid programming skills

OTHER INFORMATION:
• Domestic and international travel is required
In addition to submitting your CV and letter of interest, please submit a research statement and arrange for three letters of recommendation/reference (addressed to Dr. Steven Kettell) to be sent directly to physicsLOR@bnl.gov. The review of applications will continue until the search is completed.
