Subject: Position Announcement: FRIB Theory Fellow

Dear Colleagues,

The FRIB Theory Alliance is seeking outstanding candidates for two FRIB Theory Fellows, one at Michigan State University (MSU) and the other hosted by a Partner Institution (listed below). The successful candidates will conduct independent or collaborative research on nuclear structure, reactions, astrophysics, and/or fundamental symmetries relevant to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The FRIB Theory Alliance is a consortium of universities and national laboratories actively engaged in theoretical research in FRIB science. FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the DOE Office of Science and operated by Michigan State University.

The FRIB Theory Fellowship is a 2-year position with the possibility of renewal for a maximum of 5 years. The initial stipend is $77k and this position has an annual travel budget of up to $5k. This FRIB Theory Fellow will be an employee of Michigan State University stationed at a hosting institution by mutual agreement. The successful candidates must demonstrate great promise for high scientific achievement in FRIB science and are expected to advance into an open faculty or permanent staff position in the field within 5 years of their initial appointment.

Applicants should communicate their interest to a specific hosting institution. Hosting institutions and host contact information are:

Ohio University: Daniel Phillips (phillid1 at ohio.edu<mailto:phillid1 at ohio.edu>)

Washington University in St. Louis: Saori Pastore (saori at wustl.edu<mailto:saori at wustl.edu>)

Michigan State University: Filomena Nunes (nunes at nscl.msu.edu<mailto:nunes at nscl.msu.edu>)

Please apply at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/16717<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Facademicjobsonline.org%2Fajo%2Fjobs%2F16717&data=02%7C01%7Caniak%40triumf.ca%7C8182bbc4ef5540a01edb08d850055e36%7Cc20535109cb34679a2d38f442e03b587%7C1%7C0%7C637347331276783805&sdata=1jS40MU3EGBRyxuFkZR3PE3qehulkQl8IUSEb82R0Yg%3D&reserved=0> . The application deadline is October 5th, 2020. Three reference letters are also due by this date.  If you have any questions, please contact Kristina Launey (klauney at lsu.edu<mailto:klauney at lsu.edu>).

=== Partner institutions: interest and research ===

Ohio University:

Ohio University is especially interested in a Fellow with expertise in Nuclear Astrophysics. Prakash would act as the local host if one of the successful candidates in this year's Fellow search comes to Ohio University. Other faculty with whom the Fellow could interact at Ohio U. include  experimental colleagues Zach Meisel, Carl Brune, and Sasha Voinov -- all of whom have interests in Nuclear Astrophysics -- as well as Charlotte Elster and Daniel Phillips on the theory side. For more information please see http://inpp.ohio.edu<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Finpp.ohio.edu%2F&data=02%7C01%7Caniak%40triumf.ca%7C8182bbc4ef5540a01edb08d850055e36%7Cc20535109cb34679a2d38f442e03b587%7C1%7C0%7C637347331276793801&sdata=ZgNR46OtmshCXnrzUN5pJfGM4qKPA0MF3qAeIHrc3tM%3D&reserved=0> or email Daniel Phillips, phillid1 at ohio.edu<mailto:phillid1 at ohio.edu>.

Washington University in St. Louis:

The point of contact at Washington University in St. Louis is Saori Pastore. She works in close collaboration with Maria Piarulli on Quantum Monte Carlo calculations of nuclear structure and reactions. The group currently includes two graduate students and a postdoctoral fellow and covers a broad range of topics, including nuclear structure and reactions, lepton-nucleus scattering, neutrinoless double beta decay, reactions relevant to astrophysics,  and infinite nucleonic matter. Washington University is interested in Fellows with expertise in any of the topics given above. The nuclear experimental group includes Lee Sobotka and Robert Charity and it is tightly connected to FRIB. Other relevant faculty working in  Nuclear and Particle physics, and Fundamental Symmetries, include Mark Alford, Dev Bhupal, Wim Dickhoff, Francesc Ferrer, and Mike Ogilvie.
