Postdoctoral Fellowship on the AMS Characterization of Materials for Rare Astroparticle Event Measurements

Open until filled!

The A. E. Lalonde Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) Laboratory at the University of Ottawa, in collaboration with the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute has a postdoctoral fellowship position open. Specific international experiments currently involved in this project are nEXO, NEWS-G and DEAP/DarkSide, all of which are planning to install large detector systems in the 2 km deep underground SNOLAB facility. nEXO searches for neutrinoless double beta decay and both DEAP/Darkside and NEWS-G are direct searches for dark matter.

Candidates are expected to have a background in AMS physics or chemistry with a proven disposition toward experimental techniques, instrumentation development and physical and chemical extraction of nuclides from samples. The candidates are required to already have, or expected to obtain before employment, a Ph.D. degree in physics, radiochemistry or similar AMS-related field.
