  Dear Colleagues,

The JINA Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE) at
Michigan State University (MSU) is seeking a highly qualified
individual as postdoctoral fellow to work on nuclear astrophysics data
evaluation and dissemination.

JINA-CEE is a multi-institutional NSF Physics Frontiers Center
focusing on research at the intersection of astrophysics and nuclear
physics. The center brings together nuclear physicists,
astrophysicists, and astronomers to address open questions related to
the origin of the elements and the properties of nuclear matter in
neutron stars. JINA-CEE consists of a unique network of four core
institutions (MSU, Arizona State University, University of Notre Dame,
and University of Washington) and 22 associated institutions in seven
countries.

The research activities of the successful candidate will focus on
evaluating experimental and theoretical nuclear data, supplementing
experimental information with theoretical calculations, and the
development and dissemination of data products such as astrophysical
reaction rates needed for astrophysical applications. Very close
collaboration with nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, and
astrophysicists across the JINA-CEE network is required. The
successful candidate will also collaborate closely with nuclear data
evaluators within the US Nuclear Data Program, in particular with the
evaluators located at Michigan State University.

The position is located at Michigan State University in East Lansing,
Michigan, USA and initially limited to 1 year, though subsequent
reappointments are possible. The position requires a PhD in nuclear
physics, nuclear and radiochemistry, astronomy, or a related field.
The preferred candidate should have some theoretical or experimental
experience related to nuclear astrophysics data. An asset, but not
required will be past experience with evaluating experimental nuclear
data for astrophysical purposes, with producing nuclear astrophysics
data sets, with data dissemination, and/or with some of the
theoretical tools used to analyze and complement experimental data to
obtain astrophysical rates. The position provides an excellent
opportunity for a candidate with a background in nuclear science or
nuclear astrophysics to start a career in nuclear data evaluations and
management.

Interested candidates should upload a CV and cover letter addressing
previous experience in relation to the above stated responsibilities
at http://www.careers.msu.edu/ (search for the posting
520502;and follow the application process) and arrange for three letters of
reference to be sent directly to:

Prof. Hendrik Schatz
Michigan State University
NSCL
640 S. Shaw Lane
East Lansing, MI 48824, USA

Preferably by e-mail to: schatz at nscl.msu.edu

For questions about the position please contact directly Prof. Hendrik
Schatz via e-mail at schatz at nscl.msu.edu

Review of applications will begin on August 31, 2018.

MSU and JINA-CEE are committed to achieving excellence through
cultural diversity. We actively encourage applications and/or
nominations of women, persons of color, veterans and persons with
disabilities.

Michigan State University is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity
employer.
